Terrorism and the Constitution: The German Case

Date: 15 February 2010 Time: 3.00 pm

Venue: Institute for Advanced Studies, MR3

Setting constitutional limits to legislative and administrative anti-terror measures is politically delicate and doctrinally demanding. Against the background of attacks like the one on the World Trade Center—and the fear of even more monstrous attacks with biological or nuclear weapons--many traditional constitutional standards have been eroded. This talk will focus on the German response to these pressures and how they have been interwoven with Germany's distinctive constitutional development.

Professor Ralf Poscher, University of Freiburg.

Ralf Poscher is Director of the Institute for Staatswissenschaft and Legal Philosophy at the University of Freiburg, Germany. He is a constitutional scholar with interests in legal theory.
