Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy
The Clough Center of the Study of Constitutional Democracy aims to make available unparalleled and life-changing educational opportunities to students at Boston College and to create a nurturing and vibrant intellectual environment for the entire academic community.
The Center also aims to reinvigorate and reimagine the study of constitutional democracy in the twenty-first century. By taking a holistic, global, and interdisciplinary approach to constitutional democracy, we seek to foster original research and thoughtful reflection on the promise and challenges of constitutional government in the United States and around the world.
The Center welcomes some of the world’s most distinguished scholars and organized events that explored topics ranging from Confucian constitutionalism to the ethics of economic incentives and from the future of journalism to the legacy of James Madison.
