UPCOMING EVENT: The Failure of Arab Constitutional Tradition

By Princeton University,  March 21, 2016

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY: Please join us for a LAPA Seminar with Zaid Al-Ali,  Senior Adviser on Constitution-Building for the Arab Region at International IDEA, to discuss, “The Failure of Arab Constitutional Tradition: On the Absence of Social Solidarity and its Consequences.”  The commentator is Menaka Guruswamy, Visiting Lecturer in Law and the Peter and Patricia Gruber Fellow in Global Justice at Yale Law School.

LAPA’s seminar format assumes that seminar participants have familiarized themselves with the paper in advance. The commentator opens the session by summarizing the main themes in the paper and presenting some topics for discussion. The author then has the right of first response before we open to the floor for questions. The seminar will end with a brief reception, giving everyone a chance to mingle and meet.
