American and European Constitutional Law in Comparative Perspective, Professor Joerg Fedtke (one credit)
This course discusses two key features of U.S. constitutional law – judicial review and federalism – in a comparative perspective. Contemporary European approaches, found both on the level of the European Union and three of its most important Member States – France, Germany and the United Kingdom – are contrasted with U.S. case law and doctrine. The course invites critical reflection of the U.S. model and foreign alternatives; provides an understanding of the deeper constitutional issues underlying the current crisis in Europe; and discusses the viability of transnational constitutionalism. Knowledge of foreign languages is not required.
