United States, France, and Japan developed constitutions instituting their respective national states and regimes.

United States, France, and Japan developed constitutions instituting their respective national states and regimes. However, the path leading
to the current constitutional arrangement is different in each country.
For example, in some cases, it involved several constitutional attempts and severe internal (domestic) political instability. In other cases,
the constitution owes much to external (international) pressures. In
still other cases, the constitutional project involved careful consideration of risks and threats. Based on the experiences of these
three countries–United States, France, and Japan– and having in mind
the influences, pressures, threats, and challenges internal to these
countries or coming from abroad, which (if any) of these factors do you
think is the most determinant for the shape that a constitution takes?

Instructions:
The goal of this assignment is to assess your understanding of the readings (other than the textbook)
assigned for the corresponding unit. Your postings should be well
written and clearly address the issues being discussed. Each writing
the assignment must: 1) be 250-300 words long; 2) addresses directly
the question posed by the instructor and provide a clear answer, making
a clear reference to the readings (other than the textbook) assigned to
the corresponding unit; 3) provide factual examples and/or referred
theoretical arguments that support your argument; these examples and
arguments can be drawn from either the assigned readings, the assigned
audiovisual material, or footnoted sources researched independently by
the student; 4) provide appropriate source citations (plagiarized threads will be penalized). In addition, you must respond to the threads of at least one other student within the following week.
These discussions will evaluate your understanding of the material addressed in all the readings other than the handbooks.
