Laureate Project in Constitutional Law
Laureate Project in Constitutional Law is led by Professor Adrienne Stone at Melbourne Law School. The Laureate program is funded by the Australian Research Council's Laureate Fellowship scheme from 2016 to 2021.
Balancing diversity and social cohesion in democratic constitutions
This fellowship project aims to address the need to reconcile the tensions between the pursuit of diversity and the promotion of social cohesion. This critical problem becomes increasingly urgent as nations grapple with the challenges of highly diverse multi-cultural societies. The project aims to build a team of researchers who draw on the experience of constitutionalism throughout the world to investigate how Constitutions, in their design and in their application, can unify while nurturing the diversity appropriate for a complex, modern society. This project is intended to help governments, judiciaries and the public resolve intense controversies over ideals.
The Laureate Project in Constitutional Law website is under development.
