Abstract

The notion of revolution encompasses the idea that a people can legitimately oppose the government under certain circumstances. Specifically, this work will focus on constitutional provisions that acknowledge the possibility to resist or act against the government or its decisions in certain situations, by engaging in a behaviour that would normally be unlawful.

Keywords: revolution, civil war, internal conflict, rebellion, constitutional law, international law
