Michel Rosenfeld – Post-Secular Constitutionalism

Professor Michel Rosenfeld discusses how modern constitutionalism based on the ideals of the Enlightenment favours secularism over religion, relegating the latter for the most part to the private sphere.

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.
