The Network for Interdisciplinary Studies of Law invites you to attend an evening seminar presented by:



The decline of political constitutionalism:
critical reflections

A long tradition of political constitutionalism deployed as constitutive of the meaning of the constitutional the distinction between ‘constituent’ and ‘constituted’ power. The articulation in tension of the two poles of this distinction informed the meaning of constitutionalism as holding together the political and the legal, democracy and rights. My intention is to discuss the importance of the dimension of the ‘constituent’ for the institutional achievement that is constitutionalism as well as the effects and the expression of its undercutting (typically the thinking of ‘proportionality’) under conditions of globalisation.


Dean’s Board Room, 2nd Floor

DRINKS: 5.30 – 6.00 pm
