Webinar with Prof. Jan-Werner Müller: The Problem of Peer Review in Militant Democracy

RECONNECT Webinar with Prof. Jan-Werner Müller (Princeton University)

Militant democracy is generally considered a means to protect a democracy through rights restrictions.  The classic model applies in a domestic context, but Article 7 TEU should also be read as an application of militant democracy at the supranational level.  Who should decide on militant measures?  The classic answer has been courts.  But is there a role for what one might call peer review?  After all, Article 7 relies on the notion that Member State governments assess other Member State governments.  Is this a good idea, or not?

Discussant: Prof. Pieter de Wilde (Norwegian University of Science and Technology - NTNU)

Moderator: Alex Andrione-Moylan (Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies)
