about this item

In 11 papers originally presented at a July 2013 seminar in Dublin, law scholars examine constitutional courts from the perspectives of the Bill of Rights and acts of incorporation: US exceptionalism and adaption of the parliamentary model, and constitutional courts and constitutional reforms: specific European experiences towards an evolution of the Kelsenian model. Among the topics are a comparativist critique of US judicial review of fundamental rights cases: exceptionalisms, paradoxes, and contraditions; leaving behind the Commonwealth model of rights review: Ireland as an example of collaborative constitutionalism; intermediate constitutional review in Finland: promising in theory but problematic in practice; the Spanish experience of rights-based review, or how constitutional case law has been more principled than legislation in defense of fundamental rights; and whether the Belgian Constitutional Court has become a body subordinated to the European Court of Human Rights.
