Japan and Germany are constitutional states in which the functions, controls and limits of law and politics are governed by the constitution. Especially since the Trump administration took office in the USA, both states see themselves as international leaders in the defence of legal norms in the transnational field.

At the symposium, speakers will present and explain the relationship between lawmaking and politics in Japan and Germany. The President of the Supreme Court of Japan and a judge of the Federal Constitutional Court will speak to the participants and discuss with the audience.
