POLI 7732 Constitutionalism and Constitutional Design (Fall: 3 )
The seminar examines the basic purposes and principles of democratic constitutions and some of the principal institutional design choices (including presidentialism vs. parliamentarianism; federalism; judicial review; and electoral and party systems). Roughly one-third of the course is devoted to constitutional and institutional theory; another third, to the United States Constitution; the remainder, to comparative questions, including constitutional design for divided societies.
