Thick instrumentalism and comparative constitutionalism: The case of gay rights

Mon, 2008-02-04 16:30 - 17:30
Chancellor Day Hall : 3644 rue Peel Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1W9

Speaker: Robert Leckey. Organized by Légale McGill Outlaw and open to all. Note new date. The paper examines the subset of comparative constitutional legal scholarship treating gay rights (chiefly decriminalization of sodomy and recognition of same-sex relationships). It contends that the literature is unsatisfactory in several respects. It manifests a thin methodology which assumes that constitutional law takes place in courts and concerns Supreme Courts' interpretation of written texts, and that it is changed by litigation. The tendency to focus repeatedly on the same "success stories" – Canada, South Africa – leaves unexamined instances where reforms have failed. Yet such failures likely have lessons for those concerned with understanding how to effect change. Furthermore, the literature's assumption that achieving marriage is the objective sideswipes other aspirations for family justice, ones concerned with alternative family arrangements.

Tue, 2007-11-06 17:00
Bookstore : 3420 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 3L1

The Second Battle of Ypres pitted the highly trained German soldiers -- armed with the first weapon of mass destruction, chlorine gas -- against the 1st Canadian Division, which had been in the trenches for just over a week. Yet it was the Canadians who ultimately triumphed, stopping the German advance that followed history's first poison-gas attacks. Please join Nathan Greenfield for a dramatic in-the-trenches retelling of Canada's formative battle.

Fulbright Lecture - Discretionary judgment and organizational practice: Making decisions in the spaces between the rules

Thu, 2007-11-22 16:00
Faculty Club : 3450 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0E5

Raymond Cox III, Dept of Public Administration and Urban Studies, University of Akron. Most organizations fail because those in control are afraid to permit others to step outside the routine and exercise discretionary judgment. Discretion requires "creativity" and understanding that we call tacit knowledge. Prof. Cox will discuss how to blend organizational and personal knowledge of ethics and politics to free those in the organization with the capability to properly exercise discretion to do so. Wine and cheese to follow lecture.
