  • Walking out on us

    Dear friends of Verfassungsblog, There has been a lot of walking out going on this week: German far-right leader Alice Weidel walked out of various talkshows and interviews, Hungary walked out of the circle of the EU member states who submit to the jurisdiction of the CJEU as a matter of course, and Catalonia walked out of its attachment to the Spanish constitution.

  • The EU and the Catalan Crisis

    The events of the past week in Catalunya (and of the weeks that will follow) are very serious and worrying. Catalunya is a region of a Member State of the EU that has begun a unilateral process of independence, disregarding the Constitution, its Statute of Autonomy and the opposition of half of the Catalan population. It’s a remarkable challenge for Spanish democracy.

  • Hungarian Constitutional Identity and the ECJ Decision on Refugee Quota

    The outcome of the lawsuit launched by the Hungarian Government against the EU Council’s decision on compulsory relocation of asylum seekers before the European Court of Justice (ECJ) took no-one by surprise, neither in Budapest nor elsewhere. Some may have hoped that the complaint would succeed legally, but nevertheless it has always been primarily a part of a well-devised p ...

  • Demokratie als verfassungsfeindlicher Topos

    Demokratie wird im Diskurs der Gegenwart von populistisch-autoritären Nationalisten gegen die Errungenschaften des offenen freiheitlich demokratischen Verfassungsstaats in Stellung gebracht. Wenn populistisch-autoritäre Nationalisten die Verletzung von Menschenrechten kritischer Journalisten, von Minderheiten oder Flüchtlingen rechtfertigen, wenn sie im Kampf gegen eine unabh ...

  • One Law, Two Justices

    Poland’s prolonged rule of law crisis goes beyond the political and legal to the psychological. Those who believe in the value of respect for the law, the inviolability of the constitution and the independence of the courts have seen the things they believe in ruthlessly destroyed. They are likely to be experiencing a psychological trauma.

  • Privacy and the Indian Supreme Court

    Privacy, in something close to its current form, first appeared as a concept in the nineteenth century, the invention of Western legists, who, as the world recovered from enlightenment’s birth pangs, envisaged a little sanctuary where the individual would find refuge from the alienating forces modernity ushered in.

  • How not to Divorce Muslim Women in India

    Five years ago, during an extended tea break in Cambridge’s architecturally underwhelming University Library, a grad school friend of mine observed that her research topic, the Uniform Civil Code in India, evoked mixed reaction in our otherwise ideologically streamlined friendship circle (left-liberal to far left, no surprises here).

  • Dispute Resolution after Brexit

    When setting out her priorities for the Brexit negotiations in a speech at Lancaster House in January, Theresa May promised to ‘bring an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in Britain.’ This forcefully formulated ‘red line’ turned into a headache for the British negotiators as it was both somewhat misconceived – the ECJ’s preliminary reference procedure har ...

  • Defenceless Formalists: on Abuse of Law and the Weakness of the Polish Judiciary

    Abuse of the law occurs when the law is used to pursue objectives other than those for which it was created, and when an illegal effect is achieved by lawful means. The first abuse was committed by the biblical King David: after seducing Bathsheba, he sent her husband, Uriah the Hittite, to his death in a battle with the Ammonites and then married his widow.

  • Venezuela: Lessons of a Crisis Written on the Wall

    For the past 18 years, Venezuela has been accumulating all the ingredients – in its society, the State, the economy and democracy– to create a perfect storm. Promises were made that the old problems would be resolved, differently and effectively, from outside the political system. Much of society felt that the breakdown of the bipartisan model of government by consensus, bor ...
