Constitutional Identity and Democracy in Australia

The Australian constitutional system establishes a plural constitutional
identity which borrows from both the historical principles of
British parliamentary monarchy and the voluntarism of American
federalism. The choice of institutional and constitutional syncretism
means that the former British colony is a remarkable example of pacified
federalism on a continental scale and allows for a useful reflection
about the specific reception of the notion of political democracy by
such a legal system. Such a reflection cannot be disconnected from an
inquiry focusing on the genesis of the federal constitution, as well as
on the current meaning of the defining principles of Australian constitutional
identity.
