Limiting government : an introduction to constitutionalism by András Sajó( )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 2,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exploring the history and theory of constitutionalism in a comparative perspective this account is concerned not only with the mechanics of government, but more comprehensively with the organization of state-society relations. Drawing on some classic examples, such as the history and fundaments of the US constitution, the 1791 French constitution or the Weimar constitution, we are reminded that we can learn the most from earlier failures."--BOOK JACKET

The Oxford handbook of comparative constitutional law by Michel Rosenfeld( Book )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and German and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of comparative constitutional law has grown immensely over the past couple of decades. Once a minor and obscure adjunct to the field of domestic constitutional law, comparative constitutional law has now moved front and centre. Driven by the global spread of democratic government and the expansion of international human rights law, the prominence and visibility of the field, among judges, politicians, and scholars has grown exponentially. Even in the United States, where domestic constitutional exclusivism has traditionally held a firm grip, use of comparative constitutional materials has become the subject of a lively and much publicized controversy among various justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. The trend towards harmonization and international borrowing has been controversial. Whereas it seems fair to assume that there ought to be great convergence among industrialized democracies over the uses and functions of commercial contracts, that seems far from the case in constitutional law. Can a parliamentary democracy be compared to a presidential one? A federal republic to a unitary one? Moreover, what about differences in ideology or national identity? Can constitutional rights deployed in a libertarian context be profitably compared to those at work in a social welfare context? Is it perilous to compare minority rights in a multi-ethnic state to those in its ethnically homogeneous counterparts? These controversies form the background to the field of comparative constitutional law, challenging not only legal scholars, but also those in other fields, such as philosophy and political theory. Providing the first single-volume, comprehensive reference resource, the Oxford Handbook of Comparative Constitutional Law will be an essential road map to the field for all those working within it, or encountering it for the first time. Leading experts in the field examine the history and methodology of the discipline, the central concepts of constitutional law, constitutional processes, and institutions - from legislative reform to judicial interpretation, rights, and emerging trends
Human rights with modesty : the problem of universalism by András Sajó( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The constitution of freedom : an introduction to legal constitutionalism by András Sajó( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sajó and Uitz's intellectual history of the constitutional ideal is rich in contextual detail and informed by case studies that give an overview of both the theory and practice of constitutionalism worldwide. Classic constitutions are contrasted with twentieth-century and contemporary endeavours, and experimentations in checks and balances. Their endeavour is neither apologetic (and certainly not celebratory), nor purely defensive: this book demonstrates why constitutionalism should continue to matter. Between the rise of populist, anti-constitutional sentiment and the normalization of the apparatus of counter-terrorism, it is imperative that the political communities who seek to sustain democracy as freedom understand the importance of constitutionalism. This book is essential reading for students of law and general readers without prior knowledge of the field, as well as those in politics who believe they know how government works. It shows what is at stake in the debate on constitutionalism

Censorial sensitivities : free speech and religion in a fundamentalist world( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the conflict between free speech and religion. Religious authorities have long tried to "discipline" free speech when it runs counter to religious teachings or dogmas. The reaction to the cartoons about the prophet Muhammad, published in the Danish Jyllands-Posten, demonstrated the resonance of the accusation of blasphemy inside Islam. The conflict is not, however, limited to Islam. The Catholic Church and various Protestant Churches have strongly expressed their hostility toward various books, plays, and films that they consider "collective defamation." There is an increasing concern about the need to protect religious sensitivities against offensive speech, in particular where such speech affects vulnerable minorities and collective identities based on religious affiliation. The thought-provoking essays in this book are a welcome contribution to the current debate on how to deal with the clash between free speech and religion in a world where a growing number of people are committed in a fundamental way to religion in everyday life

The constitution in private relations : expanding constitutionalism( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors of this volume address various issues pertaining to 'Third Party Effect'. It provides an in-depth analysis of jurisprudence, placing problems in a comparative legal and theoretical perspective. According to a classical tenet of constitutionalism the constitution and constitutional law deal with state actors. In the 20th century the concept of 'third party effect' emerged, which has seen constitutional rights and principles apply in private relations as well. This raises various questions, such as what are the jurisprudential and political reasons of this change? Is this concept brought about by the welfare state? What are its practical consequences? Is individual liberty enhanced when the state claims to promote a right? How do such understandings influence the role of constitutional and supreme courts? Are there equivalent doctrines to the third party effect? How does the trend influence government spending and redistribution? How does the US 'state action' doctrine compare with the third party/horizontal effect doctrine familiar in other domestic and international jurisdictions?

Abuse : the dark side of fundamental rights( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the problem of abuse - not what is commonly understood as 'abuse of human rights' where authorities violate fundamental rights by simply denying them. Rather, it refers to authorities and individuals claiming human (fundamental) rights and the rule of law in ways that violate the fundamental rights of other people. Most contributors to this volume agree that in certain instances fundamental rights are used improperly, with troubling consequences, and that making us aware of such improprieties is necessary for the most efficient and just operation of the constitutional system. Several methods how to approach the issue are covered in this book, ranging from the use of existing doctrinal categories (e.g. conflict of rights) to developing a doctrine of abuse of rights. They help in clarifying improper uses of rights and the rule of law in constitutional and international law. The thought-provoking essays in this book are a welcome contribution to the debate if and how to deal with the negative consequences of rights-based action
Free to protest : constituent power and street demonstration( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent history of mass protests in democracies and semi-democracies raises a number of concerns. Some of these concerns are related to the proper balance between the right to demonstrate and its impacts on third parties. When it comes to striking the proper balance, one cannot avoid the specific problems associated with crowd phenomena. Recent demonstrations concerning election results or regime legitimacy in a growing number of post-communist regimes raise a fundamental practical question: are mass demonstrations a (the) genuine expression of popular will? Are spontaneous forms of mass di

Comparative constitutionalism : cases and materials by Norman Dorsen( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comparative constitutional law casebook offers a comprehensive and paradigmatic approach to the subject: it examines how the vast increase in international movements of people, capital, goods, ideas, and information affect politics in and beyond nation-states and how this influx affects the rule of law, separation of powers, and fundamental rights. Indeed, this casebook stands apart as it represents an international collaboration of legal scholars and allows for diversity of perspectives. Utilizing case excerpts from at least 40 countries across every continent, students will examine the assumptions, choices and trade-offs, strategies, and effects from decisions by constitutional courts and human rights tribunals throughout various legal systems and political contexts. Moreover, this book examines the different theories of constitutionalism and analyzes how constitutional democracies address similar issues in different institutional settings. This third edition includes new material that speaks to current issues of pressing importance: citizenship, transnational constitutionalism, authoritarian and illiberal constitutions, collective rights and minorities, Internet censorship, religion in the public space, mass surveillance, and targeted killings. Both teachers and students will appreciate the complete coverage of complex topics within a manageable size and format. A comprehensive teacher's manual accompanies the casebook. --
