Join our free panel discussion for Ukraine's Constitution Day
What is the role of constitution and constitutionalism in today’s Ukraine and Britain?
Russia’s ongoing attack on Ukraine has brought more attention to Ukraine’s history and politics. An important part of understanding the country’s current political and legal system is its 1996 constitution and constitutionalism.
In contrast to Ukraine, the UK has no written constitution but has had a key role in developing constitutionalism – the idea of limiting political power through legal means.
On Ukraine’s Constitution Day, join our free webinar which brings together academics from Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and the University of Birmingham with external experts to discuss the role of constitutions and constitutionalism in today’s Ukraine and Britain.
