    Professor Steve Bickerstaff Discusses the Constitution and Voting in the US

    [ Silence ]>>There is no more critical aspect of any democracy than the right to vote but the Constitution itself did not, at the end of the 18th century nor today, create a right to vote for any person or group of people. The authority to determine who votes was vested in the states and it meant that, at that time, for most states, only free white men above the age of 25 and with property were allowed to vote.

    The First Amendment and Privacy: Free Speech Rules (Episode 9)

    Folkemødet 2019 – The Green Constitution

    The constitution we have – which has been around for more than 150 years – – may be missing something. In any case, there are some issues in the light of climate change.

That is a problem according to Boston Consulting Group, Novozymes, and Grundfos, who at Folkemødet 2019 set out to develop Denmark’s first green constitution. The purpose was to find a handful of concrete principles that address the environmental and climate challenges which Denmark is facing. Although Denmark only accounts for 0.1 percent of the world’s CO2 emissions, it is important that we take…
