(p.325) 9 Future Prospects for the Plurinational State
Constitutional Law and National Pluralism


Oxford University Press

The flourishing of the plurinational states appears to be important in less instrumental terms to those citizens who feel a deep bond with the larger project. The alternative — separation — is one which brings losses that stretch beyond economic and strategic considerations. The extent of contemporary constitutional and political disjuncture within plurinational states means that the task of making them work is not easy. This book has identified three areas where general improvements in both the theory and practice of liberal constitutionalism seem necessary to improve the health of the plurinational states. This chapter addresses these three issues.

Keywords:   plurinational state, separation, political disjuncture, liberal theory, liberal constitutionalism
