The International Journal of Constitutional Law (I-CON) and the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law and Justice at NYU School of Law is pleased to announce a workshop on “Public Law and the New Populism,” to be held in the Lester Pollack Colloquium Room, Furman Hall (245 Sullivan Street) at NYU School of Law on September 15 & 16, 2017. See the workshop agenda here.

The workshop will focus on the relationship between the current populist turn in national and international politics, on the one hand, and norms and institutions  of public law on the other.  The workshop brings together over 40 scholars of constitutional, international, and public law to investigate some of the distinctively legal dimensions of the populist wave sweeping the world’s democracies.

The workshop, comprised of 8 sessions, is organized around several broad themes including populism and constitutionalism; varieties of populism in Europe and North America; populism and the judiciary; and responses to populism.

Attendance at the workshop is limited for reasons of space.  If anyone other than a participant would like to attend the workshop, please email daniel.francis@law.nyu.edu.
