Is the United States at risk of a democratic decline? Can our constitutional design prevent democratic backsliding? Drawing on a rich array of international examples, University of Chicago law professors and authors of How to Save a Constitutional Democracy Tom Ginsburg and Aziz Z. Huq show how the Constitution can play a positive role in maintaining a healthy democracy.

Copies of How to Save Constitutional Democracy will be available for sale before and after the program. You can also pre-purchase your discounted copy at checkout!
