This book provides unique insights into the practice of democratic constitutionalism in one of the worlds most legally and politically significant regions. It combines contributions from leading Latin American and global scholars to provide bottom up and top down insights about the lessons to be drawn from the distinctive constitutional experiences of countries in Latin America. In doing so, it also draws on a rich array of legal and interdisciplinary perspectives. Ultimately, it shows both the promise of democratic constitutions as a vehicle for social, economic and political change, and the variation in the actual constitutional experiences of different countries on the ground - or the limits to constitutions as a locus for broader social change.
