The Dogs that Didn’t Bark: Failed Constitutional Proposals

In recent years, several countries have engaged in high-profile constitution-making exercises that led to fully-formed proposals, but new constitutions were not ultimately adopted. A short and incomplete list includes the well-studied Icelandic process, as well as Chile’s process under the previous president, Yemen, Libya, Fiji, the Gambia, and Kenya’s process of 2000-2005. In some of these cases, the failed process anticipated a successful one within a few years – in other cases the reform moment passed for good. This panel will conceptualize the category and analyze several high profile cases.

Chair(s): Hanna Lerner
