The Public Law Group of the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law and the Younger Comparativists Committee of the American Society of Comparative Law invite emerging scholars to submit paper proposals for a full-day workshop on comparative public law. The workshop will be held at the University of Ottawa on Friday, July 10, 2015. The papers will be published in a special issue of the Review of Constitutional Studies (all papers will be subject to the normal peer-review process).
The theme of the workshop is “Politics and the Constitution.” Possible topics might include the interaction between law and politics in domestic constitutional law, the role of political actors in implementing constitutional law, constitutional amendment processes, including referenda and initiatives, the politics of judicial appointment processes, and the constitutional regulation of elections, including laws governing election expenses.
