Constitutional Law in the (Un)Making: International Law and Other Ways of Changing Public Law
The purpose of this panel is to reflect about institutional choices within a constitutional system. An institutional choice is a decision about the regulations or procedures that both constitute a branch of government or an administrative agency, or that provide for the governance of a public good. We are interested in institutional choices that have created new constituonal frameworks or that have changed already existing ones in a substantial way. In particular, papers that focus on factors for institutional choice such as international law or judicial implementation doctrines are specially relevant. In this way, we hope to grasp a better understanding about the making and unmaking of constitutional law.
