Rosalind Dixon
1.00PM to 2.00PM
  • Professor Rosalind Dixon, UNSW

Much recent work has focused on the ways in which liberal democratic constitutionalism can be eroded from within, including by manipulating law and the tools of constitutional change. Courts are often seen as an indispensable protection for a democratic constitutional order, and there are indeed examples of courts guarding against abusive forms of constitutional and legal change.
