Professor Iwan Morgan (Emeritus) has had a comprehensive article recently published by The Sunday Times, in which he analyses the impact of two recent controversial rulings by the US Supreme Court (one on the regulation of carrying concealed weapons, the other marking the overturn of the Roe v Wade ruling on abortion rights), and how this institution has placed itself at the heart of America’s political polarisation and raised dangerous questions about its own constitutional and democratic legitimacy.

The article in full is available (£) on The Sunday Times website.
