The international debate on constitutional law has historically adhered to a hierarchy of sorts. Is it quite uncommon for the Brazilian academia to take up the work from outside the US and a few countries in Western Europe. Our lectures and discussions are committed with breaking this practice.
On October 17 and 18th, we are hosting Professor Christopher Mbazira (Makerere University) for our International Dialogues in Constitutional Law He is one of the top experts on socioeconomic rights in Africa. On Thursday (Oct 18), Professor Mbazira will present his lecture Cross-Fertilization, Judicial Dialogues and Constitutional Adjudication of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in Uganda, Kenya and South Africa: Drivers and the Future. He is also discussing his working paper on a comparative analysis of amici curiae in Brazil and Uganda in a closed-doors seminar on Wednesday (Oct 17). The paper will be made available to those who RSVP with dialogues [at] usp [dot] br.
