Organizer’s Workshops on

“Futuristic Constitutionalism and Sustainability”

 

The Korean Organizing Committee for the 10th World Congress of Constitutional Law will open Organizer’s Workshops on the theme of “Futuristic constitutionalism and sustainability.” These workshops are designed to enable constitutional scholars to delve into four important themes the entire globe faces now.

 

Those who wish to take part in these workshops should submit a proposal to submission@wccl2018-seoul.org. The guidelines for the proposal can be found here. The deadline for the submission of proposals for these workshops is 30 March 2018.

 

 

 

A. Sustainability and Political Autonomy in the Digital Age

 

As a result of new technological developments such as AI robots, self-driving cars and drones, artificial intelligence is increasing able to replace human labor, while modern governments have increasingly formidable surveillance tools at their disposal.  These developments raise many constitutional issues, such as the preservation of human dignity and the communal ties of human beings.

 

 

B. Global Sustainable Right to Humane Life and Basic Income

 

In a couple of countries, basic income has been treated as an issue of basic human rights. However, considering the consistently increasing concerns with the polarization of the wealth and inequality, it is clear that discussions of a right to live within the context of constitutional law can yield powerful insights.

 

 

C. The Prospect of Deliberative Democracy and Constitution in the Crisis of Representative Democracy

 

In the contemporary world, it has been suggested that representative democracy is flawed and unable to produce satisfactory results. This has led to a growing interest in new ways of representing the will of the people and in workable alternatives to representative democracy. Deliberative democracy is a promising option for constitutional lawyers to examine in this regard.

 

 

D. The Future of Federalism & Decentralization in the Era of Glocalization

 

With the advent of glocalization, voices requesting the right of regional autonomy are becoming stronger and stronger,  and this has significant implications for the future of devolution or federalism. One of key constitutional issues in this transitional era will be how to draw the line between the central and the local when allocating political power and social resources, particularly given a goal of  enhancing the self-determination of the people.
