Conor Casey of the European University Institute will present 'Toward a Common Good Approach to Constitutionalism' as the fourth event of The Common Good Project's Conversation Series exploring the question 'What is the Common Good?'
The Common Good Project seeks to foster a discussion on the relationship between law and the common good. The Project begins its efforts by exploring the common good from an array of perspectives. The Project hosts a weekly conversation series with legal theorists, philosophers, policy makers, economists, and others.
Conor Casey will discuss an approach to constitutionalism that is anchored in the common good. He will review theories of how state governance and law can be directed to the common good in the context of constitutonal concepts used in different ways by states, such as separation of powers, fundamental rights, checks and balances, and operative principles of statutory interpretation. He will also discuss how prudential considerations can be woven into the constitutional framework of a polity.
Conor Casey, LLB, LLM, PhD, is a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute. From August 2021 he will be a Lecturer and Assistant Professor at the University of Liverpool School of Law and Social Justice.
