CONSTITUTIONALISM: PLURALISM AND FEDERALISM
Objectives of the course
Constitutionalism essentially means a limited government, where
government functiol according to certain principles. It is said to be abiding
by constitutionalism. Must it be democracy or can it be an autocracy also. In
ancient India, the king was supposed to act according to dharma. He was not
absolute in the sense in which John Austin defined sovereign
Constitutionalism may therefore be determined by a written constitution or
by religion or traditio or by mere practice or convention as in England. In a
plural society, where different religious a well as linguistic groups have to
live together, various rules of accommodation and mutual recognition are
incorporated in the Constitution. Usually these are contained in the bills of
rights which contain guarantees of individual liberty and equality against
majoritarian rule, Constitutionalism does not merely imply majoritarian rule,
it has to be a consensual rule. However, where there is not only such vertical
pluralism but also horizontal pluralism reflected by subnations/regional
loyalties, power is not only required to be restrained but it has to be shared.
This calls for a federal government. The purpose of this paper is to provide
exposure to the students to various models of pluralism and forms of
constitutional governments and federal structures.
The following syllabus prepared with this perspective will be spread
