Russia and the International Legal Order under the Putin Constitution – Yulia Khalikova 14 September
4th September 2020
I hope you have had a good summer? I am writing to let you know that the next GB-Russia Society talk will take place on Monday 14 September at 19:00 via Zoom. (The link will be live from 18:30).
Russia and the International Legal Order under the Putin Constitution – Yulia Khalikova
Russia’s so-called Putin Constitution, which superseded the Yeltsin Constitution earlier this year, has attracted significant attention as a means for President Vladimir Putin to stay in power until 2036. Less widely known or understood, however, are its serious implications for Russia’s legal system, including the country’s relationship with the international legal order. In her talk, Yulia Khalikova charts that relationship’s trajectory from compliance to defiance to backlash and offers an expert assessment of how the Putin Constitution may transform Russia’s place in the international legal order in the coming years.
Yulia Khalikova, a doctoral fellow at the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences in Germany, specialises in the law as it relates to Russia, from human rights law, international and otherwise, to constitutional law. A graduate of Moscow’s Higher School of Economics, where she read law and sociology, she is currently working on a dissertation on the role of constitutional courts in authoritarian regimes, with a focus on the Russian Constitutional Court.
As usual with our Zoom talks, those who have booked will receive a link to the talk the previous evening.
We look forward to “seeing” many of you on the 14th.
