Lecture by Nicolas Fischer, CESDIP/CNRS
Description

Comment by Irina Mützelburg (CMB)

Drawing boundaries is one of the main functions of modern law. Legal boundaries deeply shape modern societies. They define inclusion and exclusion and differentiate legal status, by that determining who belongs to a society or group – and who does not. This fundamental function of law to define belonging is at the heart of a lecture series organized by the Center for Global Constitutionalism (WZB) together with the Centre Marc Bloch.

A Roundtable
Description

Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) witnessed some of the most visible transitions from authoritarian to democratic rule as part of the Third Wave of democratization. The fact that most of the former Communist states of CEE later joined the European Union (EU) created the expectation that, notwithstanding the difficulties faced by other post-authoritarian states, the constitutional democracies of CEE were fully consolidated.

Description

Europa ist tief verunsichert: Die massive Ablehnung der Europäischen Union in großen Teilen der Wählerschaft Frankreichs und anderen europäischen Ländern wirft die elementare Frage nach der politischen Zugehörigkeit der Europäer auf. Die Zugehörigkeit zu einer politischen Gemeinschaft wird aber maßgeblich bestimmt durch die Staatsbürgerschaft, eine zentrale Institution der europäischen Rechtsgeschichte. Diese definierte Ein- und Ausschluss, Muster nationaler Identität und Migrationspolitik.

Description

More than ever before, questions of movement, displacement and belonging, equality and inequality, borders and otherness have become hot-button issues worldwide. Public law--whether domestic, European or international--structures practices of inclusion and exclusion, borders and boundaries, and line-drawing in a variety of ways. The analysis and assessment of how that happens, for what purposes and with what effects, is the focus of this conference.

International Workshop
Description

The relationship between "Global Constitutionalism” and Critical Theory is the subject of a workshop organized  by Mattias Kumm, Rainer Forst and Seyla Benhabib on December 11th, 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. in Berlin, Heilig-Geist-Kapelle (Spandauer Str. 1). Has the globalization of public law, that claims to be guided by basic commitments to human rights, democracy and the rule of law, helped to realize the emancipatory potential of the constitutionalist tradition? Or has constitutionalist rhetoric merely legitimated new or helped to cover up old forms of repression?

Discussion with Mathias Risse
Description

In recent years there has been a vigorous debate among political philosophers about the origin and limits of the territorial rights of states. Three major views have emerged: a Kantian view; a Lockean view; and a nationalist view. These views differ substantially, but what they have in common is that they theorize territorial rights essentially one state at a time, without taking anything like a global standpoint. For that reason, topics such as immigration and global responsibilities connected to territoriality only appear as afterthoughts in these accounts.

On the Governance of Disparate Traditional, Religious and Statutory Law in Pluralist Societies -
International Conference
Description

How do courts reach decisions in hybrid legal contexts? Which rules and procedures are functional to manage legal plurality? And to which extent does legitimate conflict resolution rely on valid statutory rules? These questions touch upon core problems that obstruct rule of law projects all over the world.

Presentation and Discussion
Description

On Easter Monday, April 25, the Hungarian President signed into law Hungary’s new constitution, scheduled to enter into force on January 1, 2012. The constitution is widely understood to be more than an instrument to overcome technical deficiencies of the old constitution. It is celebrated by some as the constitutional consolidation of a conservative revolution. Others insist it is in deep tension procedurally, substantively and symbolically with basic commitments to liberal democracy, that are the foundation of the European Union.

International Workshop in cooperation with
Norwegian Center for Human Rights
Faculty of Law - University of Oslo
Description

International courts and tribunals (ICTs) are rapidly increasing in influence and number. They regulate sectors that range from international criminal law to trade, from human rights to the law of the sea, with regional or global jurisdiction. And their findings are increasingly compulsory for states. This proliferation of international courts, coupled with their complex effects, contribute to what many perceive as the legalization and judicialization of international relations.

Symposium
Description

Gerichte gehören institutionell zu den großen Globalisierungsgewinnern. Seit 1990 gibt es kaum eine neue Verfassung ohne ein starkes Verfassungsgericht. Verfassungsgerichte spielen auch in der Praxis eine zunehmend gewichtige Rolle im politischen System liberaler Demokratien. Gerichte wie der Europäische Menschenrechtsgerichtshof in Straßburg oder der Europäische Gerichtshof in Luxemburg sind seit Jahrzehnten einflussreiche Akteure. Vereinfachend lässt sich von einer Verrechtlichung der Politik und einer Politisierung des Rechts sprechen. Was erklärt diese Entwicklung?

Conference
Description

The conference seeks to rethink basic issues of constitutional theory in light of contemporary challenges, that have been sidelined and obscured by the generally statist focus of traditional constitutional theory. Among the questions that will be examined are: Can a constituent power, which is exclusively national, be the ground for the constitutions claim to legitimate authority? How can constitutional theory contribute to a normative understanding of borders? How is the relationship between national and international law to be conceived within constitutional theory?
