Riding the wave of globalisation, scholars and practitioners envision global\ud governance as a legalised world order. This international rule of law movement\ud is centred on the idea of global constitutionalism. However, the constitutional\ud view of global governance raises fundamental questions pertaining to the nature\ud of international law, the culture of constitutional orders, and the future of global\ud governance: What is the added value for the international legal system to be\ud viewed in constitutional terms? How would comprehensiveness characteristic of\ud traditional constitutional orders figure in an increasingly fragmented world\ud order? Does the new era of constitutionalism herald a paradigm shift in\ud thinking constitutionalism? Ruling the World? Constitutionalism, International\ud Law, and Global Governance, edited by Jeffrey L. Dunoff and Joel P. Trachtman,\ud attempts to illuminate the idea of global constitutionalism. Engaging with the contributors to the collection, this article aims to achieve two goals. In addition\ud to providing a typology of global constitutionalism to help discern the distinct\ud locales where global constitutionalism emerges and dissect its plural meanings,\ud this article argues that global constitutionalism sits at the crossroads of law and\ud language. The ambiguity between legal nomos and narrative language lies at\ud the heart of the current debates surrounding global constitutionalism.
