According to the press release issued by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations Office of Near East University, the book that titled “Global Constitutionalism: A Socio-legal Perspective” that authored by Aydın Atılgan, Assistant Professor at the Department of Public Law of the Faculty of Law of Near East University, was published by Springer Publishing as the 275th volume of the publications of the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law.

The Book Presents a Discussion on the Functional Tools that the Cultural Paradigm can offer for the Global Constitutionalism Discourse…
Springer’s introductory description of the book includes the following statements:

“This book aims to provide insights into the viability of the idea of global constitutionalism. Global constitutionalism has emerged as an alternative paradigm for international law. However, when the complex and varied structure of contemporary constitutionalism is taken into consideration, in reality, it is extremely difficult to consider constitutional law as a new paradigm for international law. The book argues that the cultural paradigm can offer functional tools for the global constitutionalism discourse. In other words, global constitutionalism could be handled in the context of a global “constitutional culture” instead of a global constitution. This would provide a more realistic basis for discussing global constitutionalization of a society as diverse as the international community, in which many different actors exist and a globalized polity and a globalized legal system have not been achieved yet”.
