Michel Rosenfeld – Constitutionalism, Globalisation and Ethno-religious Conflict – V2

Enlightenment-based constitutions, such as the American and the French, tend to downplay ethno-cultural and religious differences by stressing individualism over group affiliation and by relegating religion to the private sphere.

Discussants will be Drs. Stewart Motha and Marinos Diamantides from the Law School.
