Constitutional Resilience

What lessons does the plight of the Polish and the Hungarian democracy hold for a seemingly stable constitutional state like Germany? How resilient would the German constitutional setup turn out to be in the case of an authoritarian majority taking and successfully holding on to power? What kind of legal or institutional changes may be helpful to make that event less likely and/or less hard to prevent? These are the questions we aim to address in a joint debate by Verfassungsblog and WZB, generously supported by Stiftung Mercator.
