Online Seminar

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is pleased to invite you to: Online Seminar: Challenges and Trends in Constitutionalism in 2021


IDS Challenges and Trends of Constitutionalism in 2021
IDS Challenges and Trends of Constitutionalism in 2021

The idea of constitutionalism comes into play where constitutions successfully create a separation of powers, ensure democratic legitimacy, and foster a rule of law culture. Thorough knowledge of constitutions and constitutionalism is key for working within any legal system. Increasing internationalization, globalization, and, in some parts of the world, regionalization, have also left their mark on constitutions and the idea of constitutionalism, and on the way we understand and use constitutional texts. This includes, fundamentally, the question of whether states are the only entities capable of having constitutions.


This seminar is the first of a series of Thailand's Public Policy Formulation, Conflict Resolution, and Reconciliation of Social Interests organized by the Institute for Democratization Studies (IDS) and the KAS. It will take place on Monday, August 16 at 14:00 (Bangkok Time) via Zoom Programme, and will be conducted in Thai language.
