Substantive Constitutional Accommodation: Autonomy, Representation and Recognition
This chapter addresses the substantive constitutional status of Catalonia, Quebec, and Scotland. It focuses on the ways in which, in all three states, informal constitutional practices and processes supplement traditional renditions of the law of the constitution in helping to shape relations between sub-state national societies and their respective host states. It shows how the informal workings of the constitution can foster the constitutional co-existence of different demoi within the state, particularly in situations where political actors at the sub-state level see no prospect of improved constitutional accommodation through formal constitutional amendment.
