Building constitutionalism after authoritarianism is a central concern of our times. Martin Krygier's work addresses the challenges of building the rule of law and the struggle to enhance constitutionalism in post-socialist societies in particular. I show how Martin's theoretical concerns with constitutionalism after authoritarianism move from academia to the world through the example of the Australia Myanmar Constitutional Democracy Project. Martin's work affirms the importance of local knowledge and time in fostering and renewing understanding about the use of law and the legitimacy of legal institutions.
