Résumé – abstract

This seminar will explore ways of thinking about and determining processes for constitutional design in divided societies. In doing so, it will draw on a range of cases in which constitutional transition is presently ongoing, many of which have been affected by conflict. It will draw a contrast between these and other states in which change is proposed in relatively peaceful circumstances, of which Canada and Australia are examples.
