The Hungarian Constitution of 2012 and its Protection of Fundamental Rights (2012:3epa)

Författare: 

The new Hungarian Constitution – that entered into force in January 2012 – has faced widespread international criticism. This analysis intends to explain why that is the case and views the debate from a legal and constitutional perspective. The author also discusses the possible impact of the legal measures that already have been or may be brought by the EU against Hungary.

The publication is part of the research project The constitutional development of the European Union.
