ANAYASAL DEĞİŞİM

Bu makalede; anayasal değişimin salt anayasa metninin değiştirilmesinden ve bununla bağlantılı olarak anayasal istikrarın da salt anayasa metninin değişmeden kalmasından ibaret olmadığı, anayasal değişimin toplumsal koşullarla yakından ilgili olduğu, özellikle toplumun sınıfsal yapısı ve siyasi kültürünün anayasal kurumların doğması, yaşaması ve etkin bir biçimde uygulanması açısından belirleyici bir rol oynadığı savunulmaktadır. Makalede bunun yanında küresel anayasa gelişmelerinin seyri anahatlarıyla tespit edilmekte ve belli toplumları açıklamak için kullanılan kavramsal araçların, anayasal değişimin küresel dinamiklerini anlamamıza yardımcı olacak “Dünya Sistemler Teorisi” ile birlikte kullanılması önerilmektedir.

Constitutional Change

t is argued in this article that the constitutional change does not consist merely of the amendment of the constitutional text and correspondingly, the constitutional stability cannot be reduced down to that fact that the constitutional provisions remain unchanged. It is also argued that the constitutional change has close connections with the social conditions and particularly that the class structure and the political culture of a given society act as the principal performer in the birth, life and effective implementation of the constitutional institutions. What is more, the course of the global constitutional developments are broadly examined in the article and it is suggested that the conceptual tools that are used to explain certain societies should be used in conjunction with the “World Systems Theory”, which helps us to understand the global dynamics of constitutional change.
