Constitutional Festival "VerfassungsFEST"

Between May 22 and 25, 2019, Karlsruhe invites everyone to the great constitution festival "VerfassungsFEST".

The celebrations on the VerfassungsFEST will start on Wednesday May 22, together with the 19th Karlsruhe constitution discussions "Verfassungsgespräche". On May 23, the Badische Staatskapelle (Baden State Orchestra) will play a concert called "300 Jahre Staatstheather" (300 years of the Staatstheater) at the Karlsruhe Palace in its anniversary year. In front of the palace and therefore in immediate vicinity of the German Federal Consitutional Court, the celebrations will continue on Friday and Saturday, May 24 and 25. The great citizens' festival is about central civil rights and social values like diversity, openness and legal certainty, which the Basic Law guarantees all citizens.

The FZI will also be represented as an exhibitor with selected projects on May 24 and 25. In these projects, legal issues will be investigated in the context of technological innovations. The researchers give an insight into current legal issues, which often go back to the constitution and show why the protection of fundamental rights must be taken into account right from the beginning, concerning technological innovations.
