​​​Environmental concerns have been historically absent from constitutional theory and design. But as environmental crises intensify, a growing body of practice and scholarship has turned its attention to the place of environmental issues within constitutional frameworks. Three paradigms have emerged: technocratic, liberal-conservative, and transformative. In this paper I critique these three paradigms, finding them lacking in reflexivity and meaningful democratic practices. Instead, I propose a fourth paradigm, rooted in principles of reflexivity and experimentalism.
