Sources of Constitutional Law

Constitutions and Fundamental Legal Provisions from the United States, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the ECHR and the EU (Second Edition)

Edited by: Philipp Kiiver

This volume contains important constitutional and legislative texts from the US, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK, as well as provisions from the European Convention on Human Rights and the Treaty on European Union. It will assist students working with, and citing, written sources of constitutional law from various systems. All texts are reproduced in the original or authentic English or are freshly translated into English under critical editorship. Unlike many other translations, this volume remains true to the content, style, and syntax of the original texts. This allows the reader to appreciate not only the substance, but also the authentic form - and the beauty of old-fashioned or cryptic language - of constitutional sources. This second edition updates and expands the previous edition. Provisions that had been omitted for editorial reasons in the first edition are now included. The Constitutions of the US, France, and Germany; the Charter and Constitution of the Kingdom of the Netherlands; and the European Convention on Human Rights are now rendered in full. The French Declaration of 1789, as well as selected institutional provisions from the Treaty on European Union, have been added. Selected provisions from electoral codes and UK legislation are again included.
