Lecture Justice Stephen Breyer
Justice Stephen Breyer of the US Supreme Court held the Nexus Lecture 2017. How should judges respond to globalisation? Why do citizens follow the rulings of judges, or ignore them? What was the role of the Supreme Court in bringing about social change, for example during the civil rights era in the United States? And do judges rule on the basis of reason, or of political opinion? The video recordings of the lecture are available here.»
