"The Global Model of Constitutional Rights is a must-read for all those interested in the moral justification of human rights law and constitutional theory. Its highly accessible language will make it readable for students and seasoned academics alike. ... Also an attractive read for those political and legal theorists who wish to continue exploring the liberal preoccupation with how to enhance individual freedom." - John Adenitire, Human Rights Law Review
"Intricate, meticulously argued and balanced, the book confidently straddles moral philosophy and constitutional theory ... Möller's book comes at a crucial juncture in the
global debate on constitutionalism and makes a distinguished contribution to it." - Dimitrios Kyritsis, Oxford Journal of Legal Studies
"By the end of the book, one cannot but admire the wide spread of MÃ¶lelrâs net and the fine weaving that integrates the whole of constitutional rights, reasoning, and politics. The project comes out as integrative, monistic, and foundationalist simultaneously." - Pritam Baruah, Modern Law Review
