Constitutional fragments — that is the image offered by societal constitutionalism in the context of globalization. Specialized transnational regimes are today competing with the nation states as constitutional subjects. Because they do not communicate in the power medium of politics, but rather in the media of other function systems, they develop independent constitutions, whose norms of organization and fundamental rights clearly differ from one other, as they do from those of the nation states. In this situation collisions between constitutions are a foregone conclusion. This chapter discusses inter-regime conflicts, intercultural conflicts, and guiding principles in various constitutional conflicts.
