Poland’s Constitutional Breakdown

Posted by

28 August 2019 at UNSW Law, Sydney

A conversation on Poland as a case study of where populism meets constitutionalism – and not for the better.

Speaker: Professor Wojciech Sadurski

In his recently-released book, Professor Wojciech Sadurski has achieved a masterly contribution to one of the great questions of the times – how has Poland, a leading light of democratic development, become a poster-child for ‘democratic backsliding’? 

To discuss the ideas that he advances in the book, the panel in conversation with Professor Sadurski will include Professor Rosalind Dixon (University of New South Wales, Faculty of Law) and Dr Michał Stambulski (Executive Director, Centre for Legal Education and Social Theory, University of Wrocław).

Professor Sadurski is Challis Chair of Jurisprudence at the University of Sydney, and one of three Chief Investigators in the project Constitutional Populism: Friend or Foe of Constitutional Democracy? He will be joined on the night by fellow Chief Investigators Associate Professor Adam Czarnota and Professor Martin Krygier, both of the University of New South Wales Faculty of Law.
