Recent studies describe constitutionalism and pluralism as antithetical options and often speak of the former as something holistic and closed, with pluralism to be preferred, at the postnational level, because of the flexibility and openness that it could ensure. The aim of this chapter is to offer a reflection on the relationship between openness and constitutionalism by looking at some constitutional experiences, primarily (but not exclusively) the Italian constituent process, taken as interesting case studies to explore the origin of constitutional openness.

Abstract

Recent studies describe constitutionalism and pluralism as antithetical options and often speak of the former as something holistic and closed, with pluralism to be preferred, at the postnational level, because of the flexibility and openness that it could ensure. The aim of this chapter is to offer a reflection on the relationship between openness and constitutionalism by looking at some constitutional experiences, primarily (but not exclusively) the Italian constituent process, taken as interesting case studies to explore the origin of constitutional openness.
