• Doppelpass für Südtirolerinnen und Südtiroler?

    Wer weiß, ob aus der Idee der doppelten Staatsbürgerschaft überhaupt was wird – das Porzellan wurde inzwischen aber schon zerschlagen. In ihrem Regierungsabkommen nehmen die ÖVP und die FPÖ in Aussicht, „den Angehörigen der Volksgruppen deutscher und ladinischer Muttersprache in Südtirol (…) die Möglichkeit einzuräumen, zusätzlich zur italienischen Staatsbürgerschaft die öste ...

  • Meet the Demogorgon

    Dear Friends of Verfassungsblog, If you watch Netflix, you may have come across a very popular show called Stranger Things. It is about four boys in a small American town in the 80s who like to play Dungeons & Dragons in the basement until one of them, Will Byers, suddenly gets sucked into a foul counter-world which mirrors exactly the real one but is covered with blackish ...

  • The European Commission’s Activation of Article 7: Better Late than Never?

    ‘The European Union is first and foremost a Union of values and of the rule of law. The conquest of these values is the result of our history. They are the hard core of the Union’s identity and enable every citizen to identify with it. The Commission is convinced that in this Union of values it will not be necessary to apply penalties pursuant to Article 7 of the Union Treaty ...

  • Das NetzDG und die Vermutung für die Freiheit der Rede

    Das Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz (NetzDG) verstößt gegen die grundrechtliche Vermutung für die Freiheit der Rede. Das heißt nicht, dass die sozialen Netzwerke nicht reguliert werden dürften. Eine solche Regulierung darf aber nicht nur das „Zuwenig-Löschen“ bekämpfen, sondern muss zugleich dem „Zuviel-Löschen“ entgegenwirken. 1.

  • Streikrecht für Staatsdiener? – Spagat am Bundesverfassungs­gericht

    Am Mittwoch hat sich Karlsruhe ausgiebig mit dem Beamtenstreikverbot befasst. Ein alter Hut ist das längst nicht mehr. Anlass waren vier Verfassungsbeschwerden (Az.: 2 BvR 1738/12, 2 BvR 1395/13, 2 BvR 1068/14, 2 BvR 646/15) – eingereicht von drei Lehrerinnen und einem Lehrer aus Niedersachsen, Schleswig-Holstein und Nordrhein-Westfalen.

  • Memory Laws and Security

    Security concerns are rarely openly invoked for the justification or in the preambles of memory laws – laws endorsing certain narratives about the past, often aimed at strengthening the collective identity of a nation or community. However, the notion of ‘security’ is invoked in broader debates over the legal governance of collective memory.

  • What’s in a Name? The Republic of Macedonia at the Crossroads

    Forming of the new Government on 31st of May 2017 marked the beginning of the end of one of the most serious political crisis that Republic of Macedonia has lived through from its independence. The country was faced with challenges both on the domestic front – the dissolution of the democratic institutions and backsliding to authoritarianism, and on the international front as ...

  • Law and Historical Memory: Theorising the Discipline

    Western history is largely a history of writing its own history. From Thucydides, Livy and Tacitus to our own time, most of what we call ‘History’ consists of ‘histories’ – events situated in time and place to instruct contemporaries and posterity. With the Enlightenment, however, questions start to arise as to whether ‘History’ is something more.

  • Chiles Verfassungs­reform – erfolgreicher Bürger­beteiligungs­prozess?

    Chile befindet sich in einem Verfassungsreformprozess. Die aktuelle Verfassung ist aus dem Jahr 1980 und stammt von Diktator Augusto Pinochet und seiner Militärjunta. Auch die vielen Verfassungsänderungen seit 1990 sind nach Alvaro Ramis, Präsident des Zentrums für kulturelle Bürgerstudien, wie das Schälen einer Zwiebel: Obwohl Schale für Schale der Verfassungsnormen veränder ...

  • Is the Crime in the Eye of the Beholder?

    In February 2017, in a decision which was quickly translated into English, the French constitutional council ruled as unconstitutional a law that prohibited the usual consultation of terrorist websites. A few days later, the Parliament reinstated a modified version of this offense. It was, however, struck down again by the Constitutional Council on December 15th 2017. I.

  • Some Thoughts on Authoritarian Backsliding

    In December I took part in a number of discussions, including at two interesting conferences – one in Nijmegen (the Netherlands) and the other in Berlin. Both of these conferences were on the subject of the return of authoritarianism in Central and Eastern Europe, and I believe the points raised at them are worth sharing: 1. Sadly, Poland’s predicament has become hot topic around the world.

  • The Right to the Truth for the Families of Victims of the Katyń Massacre

    In recent decades, the jurisprudence of international human rights tribunals has aimed at crystallising the “right to the truth”. This concept was developed in the context of enforced disappearances in South American countries but has also been invoked in dealing with the past in Europe, for instance in the case of accounting for the crimes of the Franco regime.

  • The Commission takes a step back in the fight for the Rule of Law

    (1) Media reports of 20 December 2017 almost dwarfed the news of the Commission moving to initiate the judicial stage of the infringement proceedings against Poland based on Article 258 TFEU, in relation to certain provisions of the Act on the Common Courts System (the CCS Act). Under these proceedings, the breach of EU law may be established by the CJEU much faster than in t ...

  • So much Love

    In the unsentimental world of constitutional law we rarely engage in romance. But I have to say, what is going on between the ECJ and the German Federal Constitutional Court is touching my heart. That old couple, together for ages. We love them both very dearly and their horrific periodical quarrels have been such a pain to watch, and every once in a while we even came close to ...
