Equality, Citizenship, and Sovereignty, Transnationally (20558). 3 units. We will explore, through a comparative lens and in a transnational field, how constitutional democracies and federations respond to rights claims by citizens, residents, and others within their borders. How does the aspiration to treat "all persons" as rights-holders conflict with practices that differentiate between members and others? What distinctions are consistent with dignity and equality? Through the course, we will compare how different jurisdictions respond to these questions, and we will trace the influence of transnational law across borders. Readings will include constitutional provisions, statutes, cases from various countries, and essays and articles from the fields of law, history, and political theory. Self-scheduled open book examination; upon early consultation with instructors, a few students may do papers with permission and the possibility of an extra credit. No credit/fail option. Self-scheduled examination with limited paper option. J. Resnik and R.B. Siegel.
