Legality and Legitimacy: From Weimar 1932 to Bucharest 2012? This is a one-day workshop, focusing on the relation between the legal and political order in constitutional democracies. Taking the Weimar crisis of 1932 as a departure point, we will investigate the contrast between Carl Schmitt's and Hans Kelsen's approach to this crisis in order to gain insights about the recent constitutional crises in Romania and Hungary. The workshop will be based on a close reading of selected chapters in David Dyzenhaus' monograph "Legality and Legitimacy: Carl Schmitt, Hans Kelsen and Hermann Heller in Weimar" (1999), and the application of his findings to recent developments in Romania and Hungary. The workshop is interdisciplinary. Participants include academics, members of the EU Commission and decision-makers in the Romanian and Hungarian political and and legal systems. There are a few place left for participants.
