Studies in Emergent Order is pleased to publish “Towards a Research Agenda on the Emergence of (Informal) Constitutional Culture into (Formal) Constitutional Order” by Nikolai G. Wenzel and “Science, the Market and Iterative Knowledge” by David F. Hardwick and Leslie Marsh.
Nikolai G. Wenzel’s paper is an examination of how constitutional choice, institutional stickiness, and the interplay between constitutional culture and constitutional order are misunderstood. The paper proposes a research agenda towards understanding and measuring the emergence of constitutional culture into constitutional order.
David F. Hardwick and Leslie Marsh’s paper examines the tension in the pharmaceutical industry and clinical trials between science, which sees knowledge as essentially iterative, and the market, which harvests scientific knowledge functional to its own interests.
