Vlad Perju

Vlad Perju is an Associate Professor at Boston College Law School and Director of the Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy at Boston College. In recent years, he has served as a Visiting Professor at Harvard Law School and an affiliate of CES, where he has given talks on constitutional evolution in Romania. He currently serves as Co-Chair of CES’ EU Law Study Group. For several years, he has been an observer of constitutional developments in Eastern Europe and served as a member of the country’s Presidential Commission on Constitutional Reform. He holds a Doctor of Juridical Science degree from Harvard University.

During his stay at CES, he will complete a study on the recent slide to constitutional authoritarianism in Central and Eastern European countries — focusing primarily on Romania. Since the recent and very alarming developments across the region will likely continue to unfold in the coming months and years, he plans to explore questions about the constitutional future of the region, as well as the European Union’s options for action. This project is related to Perju’s other projects on rethinking European Union law, as well as to his research on global constitutionalism, specifically on the project of cosmopolitanism in constitutional law.
