Political Rights in Comparative Perspective

Level of study: Master

The course “Political Rights in Comparative Perspective” provides a deep understanding of the nature and extent of political rights in different constitutional systems. It uncovers approaches adopted by constitutional courts in democratic countries towards establishing appropriate balance between political rights and other legitimate interests. Specifically, the course deals with such rights as freedom of political association, freedom of speech and assembly, voting rights, and a right to equal participation.

The course actively employs case method, i.e. students are encouraged to approach complex theoretical questions by studying and comparing judicial decisions from various jurisdictions. Attention to court reasoning in cases of high controversy contributes to creating a general perception of the role of political rights in a modern democratic society and risks associated with their unrestricted exercise.

The course is designed for postgraduate students with solid knowledge of constitutional law and good command in English. It is particularly beneficial for those interested in performing comparative research and fancying a career in constitutional and human rights litigation.
