Liberal Constitutionalism and Post-colonialism in the Global South

This paper addresses liberal constitutionalism and postcolonialism in the Global South. The proposition that liberal constitutionalism is under attack in many places, including the Global South, is more complicated the closer we look at it. What exactly is ‘liberal constitutionalism’? What is the Global South? Who attacks and for what reasons? How do place and context matter? What has postcolonialism got to do with? Building writings in this area, the paper disentangles threads and challenges assumptions.
