About the Authors
  • Are human rights really a building block of global constitutionalism? Does global constitutionalism have any future in the theory and practice of international law and global governance? This book critically examines these key questions by focusing on the mechanisms utilised by global constitutionalism whilst comparing the historical functioning of constitutional rights in national systems. Yahyaoui Krivenko provides new insights into the workings of human rights and associated notions, such as the state, the political, and the individual, by demonstrating that human rights are antithetical to global constitutionalism and encouraging new discussions on the meaning of global constitutionalism and human rights. Drawing on the interdisciplinary works of such thinkers as Agamben, Luhmann, Bourdieu, Deleuze and Guattari, this book also considers practical examples from historical experience of ancient Greek and early Islamic societies. It will appeal to scholars interested in human rights, international law and critical legal theory.

    • Proposes a new view of global constitutionalism, reviving debate on this topic in international law
    • Demonstrates that human rights are antithetical to global constitutionalism, generating new discussions on the meaning of global constitutionalism and human rights
    • Examines how human rights function, focusing on the mechanisms of human rights rather than the meaning
    • Uses examples from ancient Greece and early Islam to inform global constitutionalism
