CEU's summer school invites applications from graduate students, junior faculty, researchers and practitioners in universities and other institutions from all over the world.
The one-week research course intends to tackle complex societal, political and legal problems in constitution-building from an interdisciplinary perspective, informed by field experience. We seek to combine different disciplines (mostly comparative law and political science) and perspectives (comparative governmental systems; electoral systems; decentralization; human rights; comparative constitutional law; good governance; etc) to offer new insights on a classic subject of the highest academic and practical relevance.
Course faculty include Markus Böckenförde, Centre for Global Cooperation Research, Duisburg/University of Giessen, Germany; Renata Uitz, Comparative Constitutional Law Program, Department of Legal Studies, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary; Jill Cottrell, Katiba Institut, Nairobi, Kenya; Charles Fombad, Department of Law, University of Pretoria, South Africa; Yash Ghai, University of Hong Kong; Christina Murray, University of Cape Town, South Africa.
The application deadline is February 15, 2013.
Financial aid is available.
