Constitutional law scholarship has always been close to public power. Constitutional lawyers have contributed to the legitimacy of the State, supported its transformations and influenced or served those in power through their arguments and positions about constitutional law. EU constitutional scholarship is not an exception. The Third IMAGINE workshop analysed the role of ideas and of those who produce them in the creation of the European constitutional imaginary. We also looked into the various dimensions of power within the field.
The workshop took place online between 21 and 25 June 2021. Our speakers included Karen Alter, Jo Shaw, Joseph Weiler and many others. See the detailed programme here (pdf).
We are now recording follow-up interviews with our panelists to be posted in our IMAGINE Loud section – stay tuned!
