Conference “100 Years of the Weimar Constitution” | December 4th | 18:30 | Auditorium 1

4 Dec 2019 - 18:30

The year 2019 marks a century since the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, which contributed to the reversal of the actuarial paradigm in the context of international power relations regarding the need to establish a “world federation for the construction of peace consciousness”, whose consequences were felt in all areas of knowledge leading to science, including law, especially in the constitutional field and international public relations. Among the many manifestations, the model of social protection of the individual, still in embryonic matrix, with the prevalence of popular sovereignty over national sovereignty converged, in addition, to work and employment relations based on universal values of guarantee of human beings, induced the reconstruction of the applicable paradigm so that States were more centered on human values deployed in society than on the fictitious protection of the “State itself”. This is the propitious environment to analyze, analytically and critically, the reflexes brought by the Weimar Constitution in force since 1919.
