The situation in international relations and international law today can be best characterized as a tension between two cultures, the culture of legal formalism and the culture of legal dynamism. To turn the legal culture of the globe towards legal dynamism is the basic political strategy of the hegemonic powers, in particular the United States. The constitutional outcome is a global constitutionalism that constitutes a global public, global civil society, global basic rights and the principle of equality before law for all global actors, which are states, organizations and individual human beings. But there is a deep contradiction between democratic equal rights and undemocratic constitutional law of check and balances within the global constitutional text books and in particular legal practice. The author then tries to find facilities for radical democratic reformism within the existing separation of global legal powers.
