The People in Question
Citizens and Constitutions in Uncertain Times

1: Introduction


This chapter introduces and summarises the whole book, and offers preliminary thoughts on key concepts which underpin the analysis: citizenship, constitution, nationality and ‘the people’. The chapter reflects on methodological inspirations, showing that the approach builds on the traditions of comparative constitutional law, while adopting a broadly socio-legal approach. This interdisciplinary approach owes much to ideas of constitutional ethnography, aiming to suggest themes across different case studies, not explanations for variation.
