• Warum die Ehe für alle vor dem BVerfG nicht scheitern wird

      Kaum hat der Bundestag das Gesetz über die Öffnung der Ehe beschlossen, wird es schon verfassungsrechtlich diskutiert. Für die zunehmend ausgedünnte Front der strammen Konservativen ist es ein offener und eklatanter Verfassungsbruch, der historisch ganz ohne Beispiel ist. Die anderen suchen nach Wegen, das, was hier gerade passiert ist, mit der bisher vorherrschenden Auslegun ...

    • Warum eine Minderheitsregierung niemand wollen kann

      Der verfassungsmäßige Weg zu einer Minderheitsregierung ist einfach: Nach Art. 63 Abs. 1 GG müsste Bundespräsident Steinmeier dem Bundestag einen Kandidaten für das Amt des Bundeskanzlers vorschlagen. Die Wahl zum Bundeskanzler setzt nach Art. 63 Abs. 2 S. 1 GG eine Mehrheit der Mitglieder des Bundestages voraus – daher der Begriff Kanzlermehrheit.

    • Ein Gericht rudert zurück: „Nikolaus“ ohne Haus

      Mit seinem Beschluss vom 11. April 2017 sieht sich das Bundesverfassungsgericht zum wiederholten Male genötigt, ein Loch zuzuschaufeln, das es zuvor selbst gegraben hat: Wie grenzt man verfassungsunmittelbare Leistungsansprüche auf Leistungen der Gesundheitsversorgung ein, wenn man sie zuvor kühn konstruiert hat? Die Erfindung von „Nikolaus“ Unter welchen Voraussetzungen ein An ...

  • Final Thoughts on Mnemonic Constitutionalism

    Yesterday’s essay by Ionna Tourkochoriti about recent memory politics in Greece marks the conclusion of our first online symposium on memory laws, jointly conducted by the T.M.C. Asser Institute (The Hague) and Verfassungsblog. Twelve scholars from eight countries have offered their critical perspectives on the legal governance of historical memory, categorised under the common ...

  • Memory Politics and Academic Freedom: Some Recent Controversies in Greece

    An important area where law and historical memory intersect is the use of memory laws to express collective disapproval of crimes against humanity. These laws, although based on a compelling need to use the symbolic dimension of the law in order to condemn the lowest points of history, can have dangerous unintended consequences for freedom of speech.

  • 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 ...

  • The Kundera Case and the Neurotic Collective Memory of Postcommunism

    History is a battlefield of present politics. Dealing with the past reveals the power struggles and strategies of the present. Past events are both denounced and glorified by political agents of the present hoping to weaken their enemies. However, the past also contains injustices and political crimes and any decision not to deal with them in the present only reaffirms them an ...

  • Memory Wars of Commercial Worth – The Legal Status of the Red Star in Hungary

    In March 2017, the Hungarian government introduced a proposition to expand the prohibition on the public display of totalitarian symbols. The public use of five symbols – the swastika, the SS runes, the Arrow Cross, the hammer and the sickle and the five-pointed red star – has been illegal in Hungary since 1993, with the exception of displays for artistic, scientific or educational reasons.

  • Memory Politics in Hungary: Political Justice without Rule of Law

    After the 1989-90 democratic transition, Poland and Hungary were the first to introduce the institutional framework of constitutional democracy and of transitional justice. For a number of reasons, including a lack of democratic traditions and constitutional culture, after the 2010 parliamentary elections, liberal constitutionalism became a victim of the authoritarian efforts o ...

  • 30 days, six months… forever? Border control and the French Council of State

    For Christmas 2017, the French Council of State – the Supreme Court for administrative matters in France – gave a nasty present to those attached to the free movement of persons in the Schengen area. In a ruling issued on 28 December (see here, in French), it upheld the decision of the French Government to reintroduce, for the ninth time in a row, identity control at its “internal” borders, i.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 ...
