It was not until recently that studies of »The Sociology of the Constitution« have begun. Martin Morlok argues that one of the basic functions of a constitution is to ensure the compatibility of the various subsystems. Domestically, the fulfillment of this constitutional function assumes the form of the so-called constitutionalization of the legal system. Furthermore, the author takes a look at various topics which are part of the sociology of the constitution.
It was not until recently that studies of »The Sociology of the Constitution« have begun. What is behind this is the guiding principle of the sociology of law: the clarification of the prerequisites and consequences of the law, in particular of its potential impact. There is another reason for this. Due to international integration, confining the concept of the constitution to the nation state has become questionable, and the fulfillment of constitutional functions is also being demanded for legislative contexts which are above statehood and for systems other than politics. In this work, Martin Morlok explores these issues. He argues that one of the basic functions of a constitution is to ensure the compatibility of the various subsystems. Domestically, the fulfillment of this constitutional function assumes the form of the so-called constitutionalization of the legal system. Furthermore, the author takes a look at various topics which are part of the sociology of the constitution.
