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. If you have a research
interest in theme's of 
the workshop, please email Edward Kanterian
