In this brief comment, I deal with the role of constituent power in Hans Lindahl’s considerations
on struggles for representation in a global context. In his recent book “Authority and the Globalisation
of Inclusion and Exclusion”, Lindahl brings constituent power into play as a potential
way of practising restrained collective self-assertion in conflicts over the boundaries of legal orders.
I formulate three questions regarding this idea, which concern the difficulty of identifying
subjects of constituent power, the issue of who can legitimately articulate and exercise constituent
power, and the relation between constituent power and restrained collective self-assertion.
