Travis Smith

Geoffrey Sigalet will discuss two different justifications of the basic purpose of separating the institutional powers of legislatures and courts. He will explore how these frameworks relate to contemporary republican debates about judicial review, and furthermore examine why we separate institutional powers, so as to better understand contemporary debates in constitutionalism.

The Reading Lab in Political Theory is sponsoring this event.

For more information, please send an email to Travis Smith. This event is open to the entire Concordia community.
