The Post-Populist Constitution: Reassessing the Place of the People

The Max Watson Annual Lecture 2018

Professor Denis Galligan, Emeritus Professor of Socio-Legal Studies, will deliver the 2018 Max Watson Annual Lecture on the constitutional consequences of the rise in populist movements around the world.

Following the rise of hardline populists such as Erdogan in Turkey, Trump in the US, Orbán in Hungary, Duterte in the Philippines, and Bolsonaro in Brazil, the lecture will consider what the popularity of political strongmen tells us about the place of the People in the constitution.

The following day a workshop will be held to further explore the themes raised.
