The Transformative Possibilities of a Constitution (with Joel Modiri and Gautam Bhatia)


Constitutions are the legal bedrock of many countries, but they're also political, and are produced within a specific socio-historical context, much like any text. As much as Constitutions are there to protect citizens, they can also exclude certain groups of people. And when a Constitution doesn't work for all, how do we best address this? To what extent can we reinterpret a Constitution so it's more inclusive? And when do we need to start again, from scratch? In this episode, Gautam Bhatia and Joel Modiri discuss these questions in the context of India and South Africa.Transcript available: http://ohrh.law.ox.ac.uk/media/the-transformative-possibilities-of-a-constitution-with-joel-modiri-and-gautam-bhatia/Interview with: Gautam Bhatia and Dr Joel ModiriRecorded by: Nomfundo RamalekanaProduced and edited by: Christy Callaway-GaleExecutive producer: Kira AllmannShownotes: Sarah DobbieMusic: Rosemary Allmann
