Call for Papers, Constitutional Transitions to Democracy, IPSA 2020


Dear colleagues,


We invite paper proposals to the panel “Constitutional Transitions to Democracy: Paths and Legacies” to be held at the 26th IPSA World Congress of Political Science in Lisbon, Portugal on July 25-29, 2020.




Democratic transitions have long been classified into two categories: ruptured and pacted, depending on whether regime change is unilateral or negotiated. Despite their specific actors and modalities, both processes have in common to institutionalize regime change through the reform of fundamental and in particular constitutional norms. This panel seeks to explore the variety of paths through which constitutional reform can proceed and to interrogate their respective legacies from a political, social, and/or legal perspective. We are especially, but not exclusively, interested in empirical cases where the authoritarian constitution was retained rather than replaced in the course of what can be termed a “transition by amendment,” a path which countries such as Chile, Hungary, Indonesia, South Korea and Taiwan engaged in during the 1980s and 1990s.
