Two Centuries of Norwegian Constitution: Between Tradition and Innovation

Edited by: Giuseppe Franco Ferrari

This book covers the updated papers presented at a seminar in Tromso, Norway in June 2014, which was organized by the Italian Public Comparative and European Law Association (DPCE) in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution. The seminar brought together Italian and Norwegian scholars to discuss different parts and profiles of the Norwegian Constitution. The papers of the Tromso seminar represent a good mix of a domestic approach and external statements. The method of dialectic confrontation between Norwegian and Italian scholars, founded on comparative law, proved to be a successful one. The meeting of national schools and the exchange of ideas and commentaries between scholars of different countries is a great stimulus for the enhancement of scientific progress. The book will be of interest to scholars in the field of comparative constitutional law. Contents include: Values and Ideas in the Norwegian Constitution 1814-2014: A Reflection * The Role of Constitutional Customary Law * Norway in Comparative Constitutionalism * The Constitutional Organs and Their Balance * From Qualified Unicameralism to Genuine Unicameralism * Individual Rights in Norway * Courts and the Legislator: Tensions and Influences in Norway and in a Comparative Perspective * Religion in Norwegian Legal Order * The Constitutional Reform on State-Church Relationships * The Protection of Saami (Land) Rights in Finnmark: A Comparative Assessment * Norwegian Administration in Comparative Perspective *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO [Subject: Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Comparative Law, Norwegian Law]
