Second Vienna Workshop on International Constitutional Law

2nd Vienna Workshop on International Constitutional Law 19 – 20 May 2006, Juridicum – Top floor

The 2nd Vienna Workshop on International Constitutional Law (May, 19th and 20th 2006) at the Vienna University, Faculty of Law, Juridicum was devoted to issues of

"Transitional Constitutionalism".

It was the Object of the workshop to delve into delicate constitutional questions arising in the context of transition processes. Thereby, problems of constitutional as well as of public international law of the constitutions in Bosnia-Hercegovina, Sudan, East-Timor, Chile and others were dealt with (for detailed information see Program).

All speakers restricted themselves to short introductory statements; thereafter participants and speakers should elaborate legal and political problems of the subject matter in an open discussion. For preparation, participants (students, lawyers and other practicioners) received reading materials with background information on the relevant issues about four weeks in advance.

All speakers are either lecturer at universities or practicioners in the relevant fields (for more information see Speakers and Organization). The young team combines the fields of constitutional law, public international law, European law and legal theory and thus reflects the interdisciplinary nature of International Constitutional law.

The workshop should provide a platform for the evolution of international constitutional law from an academic perspective; on 20 – 21 May 2005 the 1st Vienna Workshop on International Constitutional Law was successfully launched.
