Sources of Constitutional Law

Constitutions and Fundamental Legislative Provisions from the United States, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, Including the ECHR and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights

Edited by: Sascha Hardt, Aalt Willem Heringa

Sources of Constitutional Law contains a selection of constitutions and fundamental legislative instruments from five Western democracies: the United States, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. In addition, the book includes the text of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The instruments reproduced in the book are rendered either in the original English, in the official English version, or in new translations under critical editorship. Sources of Constitutional Law will permit students of constitutional law to understand the peculiarities and similarities of different Western constitutions in direct comparison. With its selection of constitutions and legislative instruments, the book is the ideal companion to Intersentia's textbook Constitutions Compared: An Introduction to Comparative Constitutional Law (Third Edition).
