Populism and Constitutionalism

Dates:
  • Thu 29 Oct 2020 14.30 - 17.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-10-29 14:30 2020-10-29 17:30 Europe/Paris Populism and Constitutionalism

Over the course we try to answer the question, whether there is a genuine constitutional theory of ‘populist constitutionalism’? If it is a concept, which rejects liberalism as a constitutive precondition of democracy, can it be in compliance with the traditional idea of liberal democratic constitutionalism. Has this concept anything to do with any majoritarian constitutional model based on the separation of power, or with political constitutionalism, or any kind of weak judicial review, or with the concept of constitutional identity? We will discuss different forms of populism, and their relationship to constitutionalism.
