The Constitution of Malta – Flaws and Shortcomings Public Lecture by Prof. Tonio Borg

In the next public talk as part of our Saturday morning series in this tenth anniversary year, Professor Tonio Borg, Associate Professor of Public Law at the University of Malta, will delve into the main shortcomings of Malta’s current Constitution.

The talk will encompass both inherent flaws present in the Constitution from its inception, such as certain ouster clauses that limit court scrutiny of specific actions by public authorities, as well as flaws that have arisen due to amendments made over the years. Professor Borg will also address the recent 2020 constitutional amendments, acknowledging their positive aspects while highlighting existing anomalies and flaws that require rectification.

Professor Tonio Borg boasts extensive experience in the field of public law, having lectured on the subject since 1989. He is a former European Commissioner, and has previously held positions as Deputy Prime Minister of Malta and Cabinet Minister.
