“Some reflections on the concept of constitutional pluralism”

Eröffnungsvortrag

Martin Loughlin

Aula Campus Bockenheim

Within the last decade or so, a new concept has made its presence felt in the world of legal scholarship: the concept of constitutional pluralism. The term has been adopted by a significant number of scholars in a variety of contexts and using different methodologies. But behind these differences, there appears to be a common claim. This is that we are able to grasp the nature of the changes affecting the activity of governing in the contemporary world – and certainly to be able to respond effectively to them – only if ‘we posit a framework which identifies multiple sites of constitutional discourse and authority’. This is (to me) a puzzling notion. In my presentation, I will offer some sceptical reflections on the nature and utility of this novel concept.

altMartin Loughlin is Professor of Public Law and Head of the Department of Law at the London School of Economics & Political Science, having previously held appointments at the Universities of Manchester, Glasgow and Warwick.
