Course Description : This seminar introduces to the comparative analysis of constitutional justice. By focusing on the power the judges are granted when they are able to quash the actions of political majorities in the name of the constitution, it tries and understand the emergence of a new form of polity. Who exercises constitutional review, how and with what normative effects for the protection of fundamental rights and with what consequences for the traditional understanding of the separation of powers are among the questions that are addressed. As well as problems regarding the legitimacy of courts' intervention in major societal debates (bioethics, minority rights, etc.), methodological discussions concerning comparative law, classiﬁcation, constitutional interpretation, the interactions between national constitutional courts and supranational courts, and the strategic analysis of law are considered.
