Předvánoční ústavněprávní orgie v Mexico City

Níže připojuji program VIII. Světového kongresu Mezinárodní asociace ústavního práva, který se bude konat ve dnech 5-10. prosince 2010 v Mexico City. Program je velmi bohatý. Namátkou vybírám workshopy o principu proporcionality, federalismu, dělbě moci či metodologii srovnávacího ústavního práva. Pokud jde o sestavu "speakerů", ta je rovněž impresivní. Mezi přednášejícími najdeme jména jako Aharon Barak, Ran Hirschl, Vicki Jackson, Andras Sajó, Lech Garlicki, Michel Rosenfeld, Guy Canivet, Jutta Limbach, Cheryl Saunders, Victor Fererras Comella, Michel Troper či Bruce Ackermann. Jak vidno, destinace je to sice vzdálená, ale určitě to bude stát za to.

Plenary Session I
Philosophical perspectives on principles in constitutional law

Principles increasingly have a prominent place in constitutional law and constitutional discourse. Principles can be defined at a very abstract level but also applied in a very specific context. Often principles are referred to as norms that are valid within a normative system as a whole, rather than characterized by a specific scope of application. Hence, they can be identified in all normative systems, including in law, morality, theology etc. How can principles be distinguished from other types of norms, or from empirical statements that are relevant for the application of norms? What is the relationship between principles, values, rules, policies and facts? What can lawyers learn from philosophers about the nature of principles and the methods of resolving conflicts or tensions between them?

Plenary session IV
Constitutional Principles and the Judge

To compare deductive traditions of deriving supra- or meta-constitutional principles from the values behind or above the written Constitution with inductive traditions of identifying common principles in individual cases and gradually recognizing their constitutional nature. Do courts refer to principles? Is there commonality in the judicial use of principles, or can we develop a typology of clearly distinct ways of referring to principles? What are the constitutional principles most often referred to by judges? What is the degree of cross-fertilization between legal systems when referring to principles?
