A reading on: democracy and/or constitutionalism

Here I offer a link to an article about the sometimes conflicting relation between democracy and constitutionalism. It is quiet philosophical and it revolves around Habermas' democratic-constitutionalism. You are also invited to look for Habermas' writings on this subject. Nevertheless the former is particularly easy to read, before jumping into the big stone.

"A Bizarre, Even Opaque Practice": Habermas on Constitutionalism and Democracy" by Lasse Thomassen. Website of the American Political Science Association.

It is a good reading for these times of political crisis which is happening in colombia.
