On Thursday, October 15, 2015, Isabelle Cochelin of University of Toronto and the Société d’Histoire de Toronto invite you at the Alliance française for a lecture dedicated to the “Magna Carta of the liberties of England” which guarantees the right to individual liberty.
This charter is the oldest important appearance of a long historic process which led to the rules of constitutional legality in the Anglo-Saxon countries. The influence of the Magna Carta outside England can be noticeable in the Constitution of the United States and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The lecture will take place in French.
