This workshop brought together scholars engaged in constitutional design, as well as practitioners, to engage on a range of theoretical and mid-level problems concerning the defining and measurement of constitutions’ performance. Theoretical perspectives will be co-mingled with case studies from country experts, as well as thematic papers that look at a particular institution or policy problem across several cases.
