Presentations might touch upon constitutions and constitutional laws of particular nation-states (e.g., constitutional law of Poland, Brazil, China, the United States), be of comparative nature (e.g. comparing the constitutions of Ukraine and Italy), or provide an interdisciplinary attempt to address constitutional problems and challenges (e.g. using the tools of economics, sociology or political science to address constitutional questions).
Proposed (example) thematic areas of your conference presentation:

• Restrictions (and omissions) of Human Rights in various constitutions
