Invitation

Two weeks ago, the president of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, announced that in next September it will trigger a constituent process to create a new Constitution for Chile. It is still not clear what are the implications of this announcement, but several analysts are now involved in a heated discussion about the different dimensions of this process. This event will get together two scholars that have dealt with the issue from different perspectives.

Jorge Contesse (Assistant Professor of Law, Rutgers School of Law, Newark) He received his LL.M. and J.S.D. from Yale Law School where he was a Fulbright Scholar and an editor of the Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal. He has been a Crowley Fellow in International Human Rights at Fordham University School of Law, a visiting professor at the University of Miami School of Law, a visiting resource professor at the University of Texas School of Law, and an assistant professor at Diego Portales University School of Law in Santiago, Chile, from which he received his degree in law and social science. Prior to joining the Rutgers’ faculty in 2013, Contesse held an appointment as a Visiting Fellow at Yale Law’s Schell Center for International Human Rights. He served as a board member on the National Human Rights Institute in Santiago, Chile. He also collaborates with Red de Estudios para la profundización Democrática on constitutional issues.

Cristobal Bellolio (Lecturer in Political Thought at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez School of Government in Chile. He holds an MA in Legal and Political Theory (UCL) as well as Law and Political Science undergraduate degrees. He is currently doing his PhD in Religion and Political Theory at UCL. His research interests include freedom from religion, atheism, secularism, science and faith, and liberalism. Cristobal Bellolio’s webpage contains his articles published in the Chilean media where he is an active commentator.

Chair: Camila Cociña (architect, board member of Red de Estudios para la profundización Democrática). She received her MSc Building & Urban Design in Development from UCL and now is a PhD candidate in Development Planning at The Bartlett Development Planning Unit, University College London, UK.
