1. Which aspects of American constitutional democracy have been particularly influential in other
countries? Which have not been influential? Why?

international human rights treaties, covenants and declarations adopted by the UN member
states.
3. Why do you think federalism, an American invention, have proved especially popular in other

constitutionally divided between a central governing authority and constituent political units
(like states or provinces).
