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. Today, mass migration, religious revival, globalization and supra-national governance exacerbate tensions and pose major challenges that call for inquiry regarding the continuing viability of a coherent constitutional order within and beyond the nation-state. Discussants will be Drs. Stewart Motha and Marinos Diamantides from the Law School.
