2018 MICCL Conference


Following the model initiated in the first edition, the 2018 MICCL happened on 27-29 November.  The first two days of the program provided a showcase for senior scholars to present their work and their vision of the field. Professor Theunis Roux (University of New South Wales) discussed his latest book The Politico-Legal Dynamics of Judicial Review, with Professor Mark Tushnet (Harvard Law School (HLS)), Dr. Zim Nwokora (Deakin University) and Professor Vicki Jackson (Harvard Law School) on the broad study of the scholarly field of comparative constitutional law, and on constitutions and the success or failure of democracies. Associate Professor Tarun Khaitan (Melbourne Law School (MLS) and Oxford) led a discussion of constitutional law in India and Associate Professor William Partlett (MLS) introduced the Institute to Post-Soviet Constitutionalism.

The final day was a Young Scholars Forum on 29 November which featured presentations, comments and discussions on five different papers authored by Oren Tamir (HLS), Alexander Hudson (Max Planck Institute), Dr. Erika Arban (MLS), with Antoni Abat Ninet (University of Copenhagen), Dr. Serkan Yolku (Dokuz Eylul University), and Dr. Namita Wahi (Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi).

MICCL is part of the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies (CCCS) which in 2018 celebrated its 30th anniversary. To commemorate this important mark, and to honour the founder of the Centre, Laureate Emeritus Professor Cheryl Saunders AO, a conference was held on 30 November 2018.
