Sovranità popolare e costituzione nella teoria di Bruce Ackerman

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


Ackerman's theory of dualist democracy shows the reason why American Constitution has been working from its enactment. Its main achievement is the distinction between higher lawmaking and ordinary lawmaking which makes possible to explain constitutional duration over generations. The Author analyzes the mutual involvement between the Constitution and People's identity implicit in this theory. The main result is that in Ackerman's dualist democracy there is a primacy of popular sovereignty over individual rights.
