Comparative Constitutional Law
The Comparative Constitutional Law Colloquium is a new contribution to the public law program at Northwestern University School of Law. During the 2013-2014 academic year, colloquium participants will study the social, cultural, religious, and historical aspects of constitutional design in the Muslim world, including countries such as Iran, Egypt, Tunisia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Leading scholars and political actors from around the world will join Northwestern students and faculty to discuss the many issues that are raised by constitutional change, and their presentations will be both open to the public and recorded for posting online. This year-long colloquium is made possible in part by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, with support from the Dorothy Tapper Goldman Foundation.
