Transformative Constitutionalism in India

The idea of constitutionalism is as old as the political society. It has been a constant effort of the society to keep the ruler within the defined or undefined bounds.

The classical understanding of constitutionalism, that the authority of the government should be limited, has been attributed with a different facet in the welfare state.

The constitution has become a means for transformation and it serves as a catalyst to bring socio-economic developments in the society. This facet of constitutionalism is described as ‘transformative constitutionalism’.

In an era of pervasive economic globalization, state institutions have subordinated political considerations to economic ones. However, it does not mean that core values of the constitution such as Rule of Law, Democracy, Republicanism, Socialism and Secularism are to be given less impetus.

*Sub-themes are available in full details.
