ALLAN, James. Informal Constitutionalism and the Role of Politics . e-Pública [online]. 2018, vol.5, n.3, pp.59-75. ISSN 2183-184X.

The author first considers the nature of constitutionalism and how best to understand that concept, arguing that it is about locking things in and opting (comparatively speaking) for certainty over flexibility. He then considers how close this notion is to paternalism and raises the possibility of an Australian-style no-bill of rights written constitution. He then turns to look at informal constitutionalism which is most obvious in a New Zealand-style unwritten constitution or parliamentary sovereignty set-up. The paper concludes by examining the role of politics in constitutionalism, of both the written and unwritten varieties. 

Palavras-chave : constitutionalism; paternalism; Informal and Unwritten Constitutionalism; Bills of Rights; parliamentary sovereignty; conventions; rise of judicial power.
