Dr Andriy TYUSHKA at the book-making workshop "Consolidating Constitutionalism in New Democracies: Perspectives from Eurasia"

Dr Andriy TYUSHKA, Senior Research Fellow in the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair at the College of Europe in Natolin, took part in the book-making workshop "Consolidating Constitutionalism in New Democracies: Perspectives from Eurasia", organized by the Nagoya University Center for Asian Legal Exchange (CALE, Japan) in partnership with the Institute for East European Law (IOR, Germany) and other research and higher education establishments from across Europe and Asia.

At the workshop, Dr TYUSHKA presented a paper on constitutional order, contentious constitutional politics and participatory constitutional change in Ukraine since the 1990s. Essentially drawing on the practices of all too frequent constitutional change in Ukraine, their legality and legitimacy aspects, this paper also grounded the empirical discussion in a broader theoretical framework of contentious and revolutionary constitutionalist approaches, not least deliberating on the challenges of such a contention along the lines of liberal-democratic vs. authoritarian and popular vs. populist constitutionalisms for constitutional modernization and stability in select countries of the EU and its neighbourhoods.
