Quote of the week

Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”

Constitutionally Speaking is expanding

Along with the new design, Constitutionally Speaking is expanding to include two new sections. Contributions are invited to the seminar room, which is a forum for debate and discussion on constitutional law and political governance issues. Submissions must be between 700 and 3000 words and can deal with any relevant constitutionalism topic, including a comment on a court judgment or academic article, a book review, a copy of a talk or original writing on a topical issue. You may also wish to send information about seminars, conferences, lectures or new publications which can be advertised on the updates page.

Send all contributions to pierre.devos@uct.ac.za
