La Charte des droits fondamentaux et l’équilibre by Nicolas Cariat

By Nicolas Cariat

L’entrée en vigueur de l. a. Charte des fondamentaux de l’Union européenne, qui marque l’aboutissement d’un processus de structuration du régime des droits fondamentaux au sein de l’ordre juridique de l’Union, a été accompagnée par l’insertion dans le droit primaire de nombreuses et redondantes inclinations destinées à empêcher que los angeles Charte ne perturbe l’équilibre constitutionnel entre l’Union et les États membres, au détriment des seconds.

Au moyen d’une examine fouillée du droit antérieur et des « travaux préparatoires » de los angeles Charte, cette étude vise d’abord à identifier l’origine historique des tendencies insérées dans le droit primaire et leur raison d’être politique et juridique, à savoir les évolutions non souhaitées du droit de l’Union auxquelles elles sont supposées faire predicament.

Si los angeles Charte a contribué à une montée en puissance obvious des droits fondamentaux dans l’ordre juridique de l’Union, ainsi qu’au développement d’une gouvernance et d’une tradition des droits fondamentaux, il apparaît clairement que ces évolutions n’ont pour l’heure pas altéré l’équilibre constitutionnel préexistant.

Hans Kelsen und die offene Gesellschaft (German Edition) by Robert Chr. van Ooyen

By Robert Chr. van Ooyen

Hans Kelsens „Staatslehre ohne Staat“ und „Volk“ ist eine bedeutsame politische Theorie, vielleicht sogar die Verfassungstheorie der offenen Gesellschaft in der postnationalen Moderne: Ob Zuwanderungsgesellschaft oder europäische Integration – mit ihr lassen sich genau die aktuellen demokratie- und verfassungstheoretischen Herausforderungen pluralistischer Gesellschaften erfassen, an denen die tradierten Staats- und Verfassungslehren bis in die Rechtsprechung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts hinein scheitern. Kelsens modern-demokratische Konzeption einer Bürgerschaft als Rechtsgenossenschaft bedarf weder der „Souveränität“ noch der „homogenen Nation“; sie ist daher auch die für das zeitgemäße Verständnis des Grundgesetzes adäquate Staats- und Verfassungstheorie.
