What: The National Constitution Center, the Renew Democracy Initiative, and UPenn’s Paideia Program have come together to present an exciting discussion about rule of law in constitutional systems around the world. We have united a unique set of perspectives featuring both legal scholars and foreign dissidents who have risked their lives to fight for freedom in their home countries. The speakers will talk about what happens to constitutions when legal and political norms are violated, how we can protect the rule of law in free countries, and how to fight for rule of law in struggling democracies or unfree nations.
