A Constitutional Conversation on Popular Constitutionalism
January 10th 2023, 5pm, Room 11, House 39, Trinity College Dublin.
As the global narrative surrounding constitutional democracy has been increasingly dominated in recent years by democratic decay and the idea that democracies have lost their way, it is important to discuss the range of counter-trends to this phenomenon, especially from the vantage point of states such as Ireland and Australia. In this constitutional conversation, Tom Daly and Aileen Kavanagh will discuss three key issues: criteria for establishing ‘democratic decay’; the relevance of deliberative bodies such as citizens' assemblies in contributing to popular constitutionalism; and the challenges of 'constitutional repair' in a range of states affected by democratic degradation, such as the US, UK, Poland, and Brazil.
All are welcome to these events. For queries please contact aileen kavanagh at tcd.ie
