Law and Disorder at Rome - ANHS3602

Year - 2019

We live in an era in which the interests of national security are balanced against the rule of law. In Rome too, crisis and emergency, whether genuine or the product of partisan rhetoric, could threaten the rule of law. This unit explores the idea that the collapse of the rule of law engendered the collapse of the Republic, whilst also seeking to promote stimulating and topical discussion about the rule of law in democratic societies like our own.
