Aims
By the end of the course students will be able to:
  • Understand the constitutional, societal and philosophical aspects of the major challenges that are central to the course.
  • Produce coherent and relevant arguments and respond constructively to counter-arguments.
  • Evaluate the quality of other people‚Äôs argumentation and propose nuanced solutions in the case of conflicting arguments.
  • Relate the major challenges to their own discipline, professional life, and personal situation.
Content
This course brings together all third-year BA students at Tilburg University College to discuss constitutional values in confrontation with complex transnational challenges. These challenges concern global interdependencies like sustainability and artificial intelligence. These challenges require a rethinking of rule of law, democracy, and human rights. We will address these themes from both a constitutional and a philosophical perspective. The approach to each of the challenges brings together theoretical and abstract considerations with real-life experience and application. This course therefore provides you with a set of intellectual tools that will help you better understand what is ultimately at stake in these transnational societal challenges today.
