I thank my dear colleagues on the magnificent Global Summit team: Antonia Baraggia, Catarina Santos Botelho, Hui-Wen Chen, Cristina Fasone, Daniel Wunder Hachem, Yaniv Roznai, and Trish Do.
The Second Round is now closed in our global vote to crowdsource “the most important book in modern constitutionalism.” We began in August with 200 nominated books. Eight books are now left standing.
As a subscriber to The Leaflet, you are invited to cast your ballot in the Quarterfinal Round ahead of the official start of voting on October 14. Details below.
As always, I welcome your suggestions for collaborations and new programs.
Support for Early-Career Scholars
Last week, I continued my Spotlight on Early-Career Scholars, now in its 6th edition. Please get to know these scholars, read their drafts, and invite them to present their work.
I welcome your nominations for early-career scholars to highlight in the future.
Please send me your nominee's name, Twitter handle, and one or two of her papers.
The Most Important Book in Modern Constitutionalism
Here are the Second Round results in our vote to crown “the most important book in modern constitutionalism.” You are now invited to cast your ballot in the Quarterfinal Round. The Quarterfinal pairings are below.
I would have liked to see more books authored by women in this contest. I nominated many of them myself.
Let us all do what we can to expand opportunities in the field. I am pleased to be supporting and encouraging several women to develop their own proposals for books in the three academic Series for which I serve as co-editor.
