Blog of the IACL, AIDC

Screen Shot 2018-01-16 at 8.01.43 pm

By Dr Anna Katharina Mangold, of the Faculty of Law at the Humboldt University of Berlin. This post is part of a symposium on the ‘Third Option’  decision which was originally published on Verfassungsblog.

It is a landmark decision (English PR) the First Senate of the German Federal Constitutional Court (FCC) released on November 8th, 2017 – of all days on Intersex Day of Solidarity. The decision will shake up the legal gender landscape, as much is already clear. People who so far have not been sufficiently acknowledged by legal gender regulation can follow up on the decision: Inter*, Trans* and Queer People. However, German democratic society itself may celebrate and take pleasure in the decision: It is a ‘highlight of enlightened liberalism’, as Heribert Prantl noted in the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, a beacon in politically stormy weathers pointing the way towards equality and freedom…

WORKSHOP #8 Freedom of Speech under Stress: Speech and Press Freedoms in times of Conflict, Violence and Rising Authoritarianism

CHAIRS

  • Adrienne Stone (Australia/ Australie) (a.stone@unimelb.edu.au)
  • Miyoko Tsujimura (Japan/ Japon) (miyokoty@meiji.ac.jp)

Freedom of speech is a central tenet of democracy and yet in times of crisis, it may be the first casualty.  When fear spreads, dissent seems more dangerous and the desire for ideological unity seems more important. Governments, whether well-intentioned or self-interested, face strong pressure towards censorship. Censorship in turn undermines government accountability and impedes political…

WORKSHOP #6 Judicial Review during Violent Conflicts

CHAIRS

  • Suzie Navot (Israel/ Israël) (suzie@netvision.net.il)
  • Javier Couso Salas (Chile/ Chili) javier.couso@udp.cl

Many countries suffer from violent conflicts. War and terrorism defy democracy and challenge democratic states. Clearly, traditional, time-consuming legislative steps fail when states require urgent and emergency tools. Violent conflicts and the war on terrorism might require the reaching of decisions that are inconsistent with democratic values. The end might be confused with the means. Democracies must make difficult and delicate decisions on ways to balance…
