The Constitutional Studies Group builds on a long and distinguished tradition of constitutional scholarship at UCD. The Group has two core objectives. Firstly, it to promote research in this area by providing an active and co-ordinated research community which engages in both traditional individual scholarship and collaborative and inter-disciplinary research and secondly, to encourage understanding and discussion of constitutional law both in Ireland and internationally through a wide range of activities including publications, conferences, public lectures, research seminars, policy submissions and research projects.
