He received a John Simon Guggenheim grant in 2000 and a Harry Frank Guggenheim grant in 2002-3 and has published on issues of legal and political philosophy, as well as on U.S. and Latin American constitutionalism.
"An original book and one of the first serious intellectual attempts to identify common features shared by the constitutional experience of all countries in the continent. Roberto Gargarella is affirming the existence of a "Latin American constitutionalism" and his book can be the cornerstone of a new field of study in constitutional law and constitutional theory." - Daniel Wei L.
