• Macron or Juncker

      Commission President Juncker has delivered his State of the Union speech, proposing a whole list of reform and policy measures which are now being weighed and sorted and interpreted by the usual experts and, other than that, go by largely unnoticed. Even days before the national elections in the largest EU member state, the near-death experiences of the Euro and the refugee c ...

    • 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.

  • Not to play along

    … Dear Friends of Verfassungsblog, In Poland, there will soon perhaps still be independent judges, but no independent judiciary. Poland can no longer be regarded a trustworthy state under the rule of law. This finding is delivered and substantiated by TOMASZ KONCEWICZ, by MATEUSZ MAZZINI and by MARCIN MATCZAK in their respective posts…

  • Polish Courts are Our Courts

    … Dear Friends of Verfassungsblog, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is apparently still angry about the German comedian Jan Böhmermann and his notorious Schmähgedicht (poem of revilement). Last February, he managed to get the District Court of Hamburg to ban large parts of Böhmermann’s obscenity-laden jibe, but that did not suffice to placate the President’s…

  • The Non-Arsonist’s Guide to Constitutionalism

    … marriage has triggered a fundamental debate on matters constitutional of unprecedented width, length and passion. Everyone seems to have an opinion about the will of the framers in relation to Article 6 of the Grundgesetz. And how to determine it. And whether and how it can change, with or without a formal amendment of the constitutional text…

  • Merkel’s Conscience

    … constitutional certainty and force them to justify their readings of the law – this should be the task of constitutionalists. The hour of politics In fact, Article 6 can be read in quite the opposite way. MATHIAS HONG shows how this can be done (in German) and comes to the carefully reasoned conclusion that the Constitution not only does not prohibit…

  • A Great Laugh

    … of their own party already prepare for a decidedly unhumorous step, which is to take her down. Perhaps the British wouldn’t even be in this situation if it weren’t for their famous humour. With respect to Europe, that humour has always been mostly about finding non-English people impossible in a faintly amusing way: these Frenchmen…

  • The Hand on the Faucet

    … Dear Friends of Verfassungsblog, Cutting off the bad guys from their money supplies is a well-established policing strategy, but is it also the right way to sanction attacks on the rule of law and democracy? We have seen this question arise twice this week: First, the German neonazi party NPD, after being found anti- but not unconstitutional…

  • Red Card for the Red Card

    … Dear friends of Verfassungsblog, Red cards have been all over the place in recent times when it comes to the altercation between the right-wing populist AfD party and the German federal government. For readers unfamiliar with the popular pastime of football/soccer: when a particularly bad foul is committed by a player the referee will dismiss…

Article 76 (1) of the Grundgesetz merely states that legislative proposals are introduced "from the midst of the Bundestag". There exists a FCC decision from 65 years ago, one of its very earliest ones, in which the Court, referring to an essay by the famous Weimar…

  • Because they say so!

    … Dear Friends of Verfassungsblog Was that a threat? In a large op-ed in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung this week (May 11, p.6, not online so far), the Speaker of the German Parliament Norbert Lammert made a rather blunt statement towards the Federal Constitutional Court, recommending the justices to apply some "smart restraint" unless…

  • My President, too

    … Dear Friends of Verfassungsblog, This might very well be the probably been the most momentous election night I will experience in my lifetime, and, praised be the lord, its result has turned out the way I and millions of others all over Europe have wished for, and by a generous margin, too! I was not entitled to vote, and yet this presidential…
