5 December 2019 - 6 December 2019
Budapest, Hungary

The Centre for Social Sciences (CSS), which coordinates the H2020 RIA project DEMOS, will host the international conference Constitutional Interpretation in European Populist Regimes in Budapest between December 5 and 6. The conference investigates whether European populist systems have developed new, specific constitutional theories, doctrines or methods, or whether their constitutional courts and other high courts continue to use the old, traditional interpretative tools in constitutional adjudication.

The event, organized by the International Association of Constitutional Law Research Group on Constitutional Interpretation (IACL), brings over 20 experts in constitutional interpretation from all over the world. The Group provides a framework for studying the theories and methods of constitutional interpretation and aims to maintain a research network of scholars studying the theme. The Institute for Legal Studies at CSS provides an institutional framework for organizing the activities of the Group. The event is also supported by DEMOS and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
