Week Eight Theme :: Reframing the Constitution

Saturday, August 15, 2020

Two-hundred and thirty years after its ratification, the U.S. Constitution remains one of the most difficult to amend of any in the world. During this week we ask if the Constitution is securing the “blessings of liberty” for all Americans and whether constitutional reform — from amendment to outright replacement — is necessary and even possible.

  • We look at constitutional politics to understand the “unamendability” of the U.S. Constitution, consider resistance to a constitutional convention from both the political left and right, and determine what we can learn from younger democracies around the world.
