The second chapter introduces what is called “fusion constitutionalism,” a name that comes to describe the Constitutions that emerged after the agreement between liberal and conservative forces that took place in most countries by the mid-19th Century. These early years (approximately between 1850 and 1880) represent the “founding period” of Latin American constitutionalism, given that the Constitutions that were then drafted defined the fundamental features of what would come to be defined as Latin American constitutionalism.

Keywords:   “Fusion constitutionalism, ” “founding period”, “order and progress”, liberalism, conservatism, liberal-conservative compact
