Comparative Constitutional Rights Seminar (2)


Professor Gábor Halmai, Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest and Princeton University

Comparative constitutional rights is not an independent discipline, but part of comparative constitutional law, which compares the fundamental rights institutions of constitutional law of more than one country/nation/state. As we will see this term, comparative fundamental rights is a particularly fascinating area in which to look abroad these days. In many countries in the world, constitutional rights have become a booming, ambitious, politically alive field, through which courts with constitutional jurisdiction over rights have become aggressive players in new forms of politics. We are witnessing “globalization of human rights”onstitutional law,” Most of the readings of the course are cases of high courts from all around the world. The rest are book chapters and articles by experts in the field.
