Normative Force of Established Constitutional Practice in Central European Countries
How do Central European countries deal with unwritten elements of their constitutions? What is their approach to the concept of constitutional conventions or, more generally, established constitutional practice, in particular? The panel aims to present the answers to these questions by looking at the distinct experience of three countries in Central Europe – Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic. The members of the panel will, inter alia, study the relevant case-law of their respective constitutional courts and point out the evolving doctrinal reflection of this fascinating constitutional issue in their countries. In addition, the panel will use the benefit of the critique by a discussant from Poland, providing further comparative insights.
