Response to The Alchemists book

This response will be based on Dr Sanchez-Urribarri’s extensive research on comparative constitutional law and politics, and on the conditions that explain judicial empowerment, the politicization of courts and sound judicial reform practices across different political contexts, in Latin American states in particular (including Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, and Costa Rica), as well as European states such as Russia and Ukraine. Dr Sanchez-Urribarri’s response will add to the comparative design of the panel, as well as reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of The Alchemists book itself.
