The German Consulate General Recommends:
Deutsches Haus at NYU and New York University School of Law present a talk by the Hauser Distinguished Global Fellow, Justice Prof. Dr. Dr. hc. Susanne Baer, LL.M. on “Judging Matters. The Constitutional Court in Context,” followed by a conversation with Dr. Christian Martin. With the rule of law and democracy under pressure in many settings, constitutional law becomes more important as a guarantee of the rules of the game by the minute. Justice Baer will share observations on the role courts play in such a situation, and discuss some features of the approach the German Federal Constitutional Court developed to embed nation-states in international contexts, to fulfill the promise to protect the disempowered, and to contribute to the effort to share a social space based on dignity, liberty and equality.
A light breakfast will be served.
“Judging Matters. The Constitutional Court in Context.” is a DAAD-supported event.
