This book contains an outstanding set of essays on constitutional courts. In many nations constitutional justice can be identified as a central feature of contemporary constitutionalism. Moreover, viewed from a comparative global perspective it is clear that constitutional justice as well as providing a special kind of dispute resolution, also has been turned to as a means of safeguarding conditions of liberal democracy. What characteristics must such a court possess to undertake the tasks that confront them? These contributions by providing an analysis of features such as constitutional context, jurisdictional scope, organisational features and interpretative techniques to give a selective snapshot of the legal characteristics and the operation of constitutional courts across the world.
The chapters by a team of leading international scholars include a general introduction and then focus on: Austria, Central and Eastern Europe, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Francophone Africa, South Africa, Latin America, East Asia, Indonesia and Thailand.
