Abstract

Bruce Ackerman does not support the validity of a «one size fits all constitutionalism» and the facts prove him right. We have been witnessing to the deterioration of the structure and the substance of the constitutional liberal democracy, which has gathered place in countries that have generally been considered as consolidated democracies. Ackerman’s innovative proposal of a Popular Sovereignty Initiative is important, because it is aimed to value the People’s role in the decision-making process, preventing the risk of exploitation by more or less charismatic leaders. It is oriented to give the People the importance they deserve in determining the orientation of the constitutional order, within the framework of constitutionalism.
