Constitutional Jurisdiction in a Democracy Governed by the Rule of Law

Gerhart Holzinger EMAIL logo
From the journal ICL Journal


Today, the Austrian Constitutional Court looks back on an eventful history. The Austrian model of constitutional adjudication attracted wide attention, in particular after World War II and proved to be a success story. Carefully managing both the influences of the ECHR and, most recently, those of European Union law, the Court has become an active player in the dialogue of the courts involved.

This manuscript is based on a lecture held by President Holzinger at the Constitution Day on 2 October 2017. The lecture form largely was retained.
