    Resumé

    This article argues that although there is no necessary link between constructivism and particular sets of norms, constructivism opens up a space for normativity and can be articulated through particular normative or political programs. I show how Laclau’s deconstructive constructivism can be articulated within the framework of an ethos of democratization. The article takes its empirical point of departure in debates over dangerous dogs.
