Peripheral democratic frustrations. Challenges to liberal-constitutional authority in CEE

In the paper I will defend the following thesis: What is happening in Poland and some other Central and Eastern European (CEE) former communist countries is not constitutional breakdown or backsliding, but rather constitutional tectonic movements that reflect the development of some new elements in constitutionalism in the region. In other words I will try to show some alternative ways of interpreting the present situation in CEE countries with special reference to Poland.
