Problems and Purpose

A Constitution is the top-most governing document of an organization. It defines the various types of autonomy (the roles) people have. It limits powers of the main leaders. It allows for amendments. It provides various rights either implicitly or explicitly. It provides measurable processes, whether in elections, decision-making, who does what work, or otherwise.

A Constitution also mandates the participation of citizens in governing. Some constitutions enshrine participation the duty to consult citizens in, such as in Canada [1]
