Summary/Abstract: Here I am going to propose a goal-oriented analysis of executive power institutions. It is abstract in the sense that I delimit a set of aims that constitutions impose as imperatives on the design and performance of the institutions. The delimitation of the constitutional goals’ scheme is not speculative, however, for two reasons. First, these are typical goals that are usually pursued by most constitutions, though through differing institutional design. Their attainment is considered a precondition for the functioning of every modern state. Second, the existence of these goals is verified by extraction and analysis of the typical devices by virtue of which they are supposed to be achieved.
