Explaining Populist Court Curbing

With Dr Alex Schwartz (The University of Hong Kong) 

The discussion will focus on the recent findings of our guest, who investigates courts and judicial behavior, particularly in the context of deeply divided, transitional, and crisis-prone polities. His research makes use of cross-national data on the relationship between populism and various types of court curbing, such as attacks on judicial power and judicial independence. The presentation will be followed by a comment by Dr Michal Ziólkowski (Max Weber Fellow, EUI) and an open discussion.

 

We kindly ask you to send a short email to [email protected] in order to register and receive a copy of the paper being discussed.

 

All EUI members are welcome!
