(p.3) 1 The Plurinational State in Context
Constitutional Law and National Pluralism


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a brief discussion of the purpose of the book, which is to address the issues of constitutional law which attend national diversity within the plurinational democratic state through the case studies of Catalonia, Quebec, and Scotland. It focuses on the challenge posed by these sub-state societies, both in a particular sense to the constitutional structures of their respective host state, and at a deeper and more general level to the fundamental normative concepts which inform contemporary constitutional theory and legal praxis.

Keywords:   constitutional law, national diversity, plurinational democratic state, Catalonia, Quebec, Scotland, sub-state societies, legal praxis
