Peter Niesen: Resistance, Disobedience and Transnational Constituent Power
Lecture by Prof. Peter Niesen (Hamburg) organized by the Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics
In a third section, I look at the advantages of a model of constituent power when moving beyond the confines of the state. Here the question is who the agents of trans- and international constituent power are. In contrast to current approaches that look at states as agents of international civil disobedience-as-constituent power, I suggest we look at social movements. I focus on the example of the DiEM25 movement which understands itself as “a pan-European movement of civil and governmental disobedience” that is at the same time working towards an articulation of constituent power among the people(s) of Europe.
