Abstract:     
This paper is a defense of sorts of the Iraqi constitution, arguing that the language used in it was wisely designed to allow some level of flexibility, such that the constitution could evolve as social and political circumstances necessitated. The point is more than a theoretical one. Enormous changes in the political landscape and understandings of popular will have occurred. Due to the flexibility of the language, and the Constitution has not only survived them, but has had its own legitimacy considerably broadened as a result.
