More than 90 new constitutions have been made for countries across all regions of the world since the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. Currently, constitution making is actively underway in a range of states and pending in others. This concentrated burst of activity has given rise to a range of new ideas about the nature and purpose of constitutions, constitutional solutions to contemporary problems, the processes of constitution making and the proper role of international actors.
