How do Territorial and Power Configurations Affect Constitutional Transitions?

Constitutional transitions, when major changes to a regime are in question, can create challenging politics.  They can be influenced by preceding conditions (violent, as in Nepal and Ethiopia; relatively peaceful as in Bolivia and Spain), and by the emerging power configuration (clear victor, Nigeria; standoff, Kenya).  The pattern of territorial and other cleavages will influence the design options considered (federal, special autonomy, power-sharing), but outcomes are not foreordained.  The panelists all contributed to a new volume Territory and Power in Constitutional Transitions (OUP), edited by Anderson and Choudhry.
