Rights Before Courts: A Study of Constitutional Courts in Postcommunist States of Central and Eastern Europe

Front Cover
Springer Netherlands, Dec 20, 2007 - Education - 376 pages

Challenging the conventional wisdom that constitutional courts are the best device that democratic systems have for the protection of individual rights, Wojciech Sadurski examines the most recent wave of activist constitutional courts: those that have emerged after the fall of communism in Central and Eastern Europe. In contrast to most other analysts and scholars he does not take for granted that they are a "force for the good", but rather subjects them to critical scrutiny.
