The 25th Amendment details a mechanism for removing the U.S. president from office. A panel of experts in constitutional law and American politics will discuss the meaning and history of the amendment. The amendment has never been used to involuntarily remove a president. When should the 25th amendment be used for this purpose and what would this mean for American democracy?
The panel will be moderated by Alan Gerber, the Charles C. & Dorathea S. Dilley Professor of Political Science, Director of ISPS, and Dean of the FAS Social Science Division.
