Comparative Constitutional Law

The Comparative Constitutional Law Colloquium is a contribution to the public law program at Northwestern University School of Law. 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 join Northwestern students and faculty to discuss the many issues that are raised by constitutional change, and their presentations are both open to the public and recorded for posting online. This year-long colloquium was made possible in part by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, with support from the Dorothy Tapper Goldman Foundation.
