Constitutionalism and Democratic Backsliding: The Turn against "Genders" in Bulgarian Constitutional Discourse
Monday, May 3, 20218:00 am – 9:30 am EDT/GMT-4
The Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory at the University of Belgrade welcomes all OSUN members to attend a virtual talk with Ruzha Smilova of Sofia University, who will analyse how the Bulgarian Constitutional court produced a conceptual and ideological innovation when it declared in 2018 that the Istanbul Convention violates the Constitution of Bulgaria. This can be seen as a radical turn away from human rights protection and an important sign of post-accession democratic backsliding.
This is an online event.
