On Friday, September 22, 2017, the International Seminar on Developments of Constitutionalism will take place in Regensburg, with the subject "Constitutional Interpretation in a comparative perspective. Conceptual changes, dialogue of judges,Europeanization", organized by Prof. Rainer Arnold, University of Regensburg, and the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies of the Universities of  Munich (LMU) and Regensburg.

The topic of the seminar is of great importance for the development of constitutional law which is no longer an exclusive matter of the national legal orders but is influenced to a high degree by the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights as well as by the Court of Justice of the European Union. Besides that, transnational judicial dialogue contributes to an increasing convergence of constitutional concepts in Europe, a process which has to be closely observed. It is obvious that the subject of constitutional interpretation shall be studied in a horizontal and vertical comparative perspective.

The international seminar shall be a forum of internationally renowned academics and members of European and national Constitutional Courts for the discussion of the problems of constitutional interpretation.
