Assistant Professor at the Department of Political Science at Columbia University

Market Freedoms and Constitutionalism in the European Union

Dr. Isiksel’s talk will examine the status of fundamental rights norms within the European Union's supranational legal system, arguing that the concept of “fundamental freedoms” illustrates the EU's distinctive constitutional logic. Although the protection of individual rights is a prominent element of modern constitutional rule, the EU's regime of fundamental freedoms promotes a narrower goal, namely that of market integration. The talk is based on Dr. Isiksel’s book manuscript, “Europe's Functional Constitution: A Theory of Constitutionalism Beyond the State.”

Lunch will be provided.
