2020 to 2022
This project aims to develop comparative research to map the diversity and measure the impact of European constitutional court decisions between 1990 and 2020. The project seeks to overcome the gaps in research on constitutional jurisdiction based on a dichotomous approach that only categorises the decisions of constitutional courts as positive or negative when declaring the constitutionality or unconstitutionality of a given rule. In recognising the diversity of decisions by constitutional courts, this draft analyses judicial decisions according to their impact and assesses the extent to which constitutional courts restrict the action of the legislature. The project, which is coordinated by the National University of Public Service and the Centre for Social Sciences in Budapest, involves the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and the United Kingdom.
