      Our format today, as it has been in the past, will be three one-hour sessions, and we’ll be paying special attention in this program to the emergence and implementation of an ambitious U.S. effort to extend at least some of the features of domestic airline deregulation to the international sphere, through a policy known as “Open Skies.” But today’s guest I hope will travel back with us to the period before the arrival of the formal Open Skies policy in the early 1990s and help us to understand the first stirrings of international air transport liberalization during the preceding decade. In this first hour, we’ll be looking at some of the background to deregulation and some of the early liberalization efforts that preceded Open Skies in the 1990s.

              In a provocative new book, Duke Law School Professor, David Lange, argues that the language of the First Amendment should be interpreted in absolute terms with heightened deference to the language of the text, as informed by the history of the text’s interpretation and application. He laments the reality that in lieu of this approach, the First Amendment law in the United States has been far more influenced by a balancing oriented ideology. DePaul Law Professor, Roberta Kwall, builds upon Lange's thesis by showing how the "absolutist" and "balancing" ideologies are reflected respectively in the lawmaking characteristic of Orthodox and Conservative movements.
