"It's not a reform, it's a coup!" – Protecting Courts Against Populists

Constitutional Courts are essential safeguards of liberal democracy. However, they are increasingly under attack from populist actors who see independent judiciaries as an obstacle in their quest for power. How can we protect courts and against populist attacks? What can we learn from the experiences of other countries? The panel of international legal experts and political scientists will discuss these and other questions together with the audience.
