Inaugural Lecture: A crisis of constitutional democracy in post-Communist Europe: “Lands in-between” democracy and authoritarianism by Prof. Bojan Bugarič
On 4 October, for its first event, the newly created Working Group on Constitutionalism and Politics was honoured to welcome Professor Bojan Bugarič.
Bojan Bugarič is Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Ljubljana and Visiting Researcher, Center for European Studies, Harvard University. With a specific focus on Hungary and Slovenia, Prof. Bugarič analysed the current democratic backsliding in Eastern Europe from both, a constitutional and a political perspective.
The event was chaired by Professor Gábor Halmai and EUI researcher Théo Fournier and the discussion was based on the paper: “A crisis of constitutional democracy in post-Communist Europe: “Lands in-between” democracy and authoritarianism” (Int J Constitutional Law (2015) 13 (1): 219-245.)
A Q&A on the activity of the Working Group was organised before the lecture. The audience in this way had the chance to find out more about the activities of the working group, how to become a member and how to stay updated about our future events.
