The standard question in connection with constitutional adjudication is whether constitutional courts or supreme courts with constitutional jurisdiction are legal or political institutions and whether judicial review is a legal or a political activity. Academics are not less interested in it than the general public. However, the answers to the question differ considerably among the disciplines.
On 26 November 2018, Dieter Grimm, from the Institute of Advanced Studies in Berlin and former judge of the German Constitutional Court will join us to discuss what exactly is political about constitutional adjudication.
