ZiF Workshop

Constitutions: History, present, future - Author's Colloquium with Dieter Grimm

Date: 29 - 30 June 2017
Convenors: Ulrike Davy (Bielefeld, GER), Gertrude Lübbe-Wolff (Bielefeld, GER)

Dieter Grimm became member of the Faculty of Law of Bielefeld University in 1979, shortly after his Habilitation. He stayed in Bielefeld until 1987 when he was appointed as a justice of the federal constitutional court (Bundesverfassungsgericht). While in Bielefeld, Dieter Grimm participated in a Collaborative Research Center and a ZiF Research Group on the emergence of the bourgeoisie in the nineteenth century. From 1984 through 1990, Grimm was member of the Board of Directors of the ZiF. In 1988/89, he headed a ZiF Research Group on the role of government. The author's colloquium focused on the prime topic of Dieter Grimm´s research: the notion of the constitution and the role and development of constitutionalism from the late 18th century on, including the future of the constitution in a transnational context, particularly in the European Union.
