Human dignity is one of the most challenging and exciting ideas for lawyers and political philosophers in the twenty-first century. Even though it is rapidly emerging as a core concept across legal systems, and is the first foundational value of the European Union and its overarching human rights commitment under the Lisbon Treaty, human dignity is still little understood and often mistrusted. Based on extensive comparative and cross-disciplinary research, this path-breaking monograph provides an innovative and critical investigation of human dignity's origins, development and above all its potential at the heart of European constitutionalism today. Grounding its analysis in the connections among human dignity, human rights, constitutional law and democracy, this book argues that human dignity's varied and increasing uses point to a deep transformation of European constitutionalism. At its heart are the construction and protection of constitutional time, and the multi-dimensional definition of humanity as human beings, citizens and workers. Anchored in a detailed comparative study of case law, including the two European supranational courts and domestic constitutional courts, especially those of Germany, the UK, France and Hungary, this monograph argues for a new understanding of European constitutionalism as a form of humanism.

This book argues that human dignity and law stand in a privileged relationship with one another. Law must be understood as limited by the demands made by human dignity. Conversely, human dignity cannot be properly understood without clarifying its interaction with legal institutions and legal practices. This is not, then, a survey of the uses of human dignity in law; it is a rethinking of human dignity in relation to our principles of social governance.? The result is a revisionist account of human dignity and law, one focused less on the use of human dignity in our regulations and more on its constitutive implications for the governance of the public realm. The first part conducts a wide-ranging moral, legal and political analysis of the nature and functions of human dignity. The second part applies that analysis to three fields of legal regulation: international law, transnational law, and domestic public law. The book will appeal to scholars in both philosophy and law. It will also be of interest to political theorists, particularly those working within the liberal tradition or those concerned with institutional design.

The need for innovative thinking about alternative constitutional experiences is evident, and readers of Comparative Constitutional Theory will find in its pages a compendium of original, theory-driven essays. The authors use a variety of theoretical perspectives to explore the diversity of global constitutional experience in a post-1989 world prominently marked by momentous transitions from authoritarianism to democracy, by multiple constitutional revolutions and devolutions, by the increased penetration of international law into national jurisdictions, and by the enhancement of supra-national institutions of governance.

The concept of a European Constitutional Area has been used in legal scholarship to describe a common space of constitutionalism where national and international constitutional guarantees interact to maintain the common constitutional values of Europe. This concept has not yet been tested in a case where the constitutional order of a Member State of the European Union seems to develop systemic deficiencies. The present volume aims to assess recent constitutional developments in Hungary and Romania, as well as the interplay of national, international and European constitutionalism which react to the loopholes in national constitutions. Accordingly, a core part of the volume is an in-depth analysis of the situation in Hungary and Romania. Based on that, the volume offers an account of the different reaction mechanisms of the European Union and of the Council of Europe. Beyond a detailed stock-taking of these mechanisms, their legal and political frameworks are explored, as well as different ways to extend their reach. In this way, the volume contributes to a little-studied aspect of European constitutionalism.

English summary: This work contains a comparative report on the law relating to same-sex couples drawn up by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Private Law to advise the German Ministry of Justice on impending legislation. National reports deal with the legislation of the Scandinavian countries, the Netherlands, France, Spain and with the present situation in the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Further reports describe the position taken by the Catholic and Protestant churches and analyze the current state of relevant research on human sexuality and social psychology. The work concludes with a comparative evaluation and recommendations. German description: Sollte in Deutschland ein Gesetz zur Regelung der Rechtsstellung gleichgeschlechtlicher Lebensgemeinschaften erlassen werden? Welchen Inhalt konnte ein solches Gesetz haben?Dieser Band enthalt im wesentlichen das umfangreiche rechtsvergleichende Gutachten, das das Max-Planck-Institut fur auslandisches und internationales Privatrecht im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums der Justiz zu diesen Fragen erstattet hat. Ausfuhrliche Berichte beschaftigen sich mit der einschlagigen Gesetzgebung in den nordischen Landern, den Niederlanden, in Frankreich und Spanien und untersuchen den Stand der Entwicklung in Grossbritannien und den USA. Da es um ein Problem geht, das auch wichtige sexualethische, medizinisch-sexualwissenschaftliche sowie familien- und entwicklungspsychologische Fragen beruhrt, stellen Theologen die Positionen der katholischen Kirche sowie der evangelischen Kirchen Deutschlands und anderer europaischer Lander dar. Zwei weitere Gutachten berichten uber den gegenwartigen Stand der internationalen Forschung auf dem Gebiet der Sexualwissenschaft und der Entwicklungs- und Familienpsychologie. Das Werk schliesst mit einem Abschnitt, der eine rechtsvergleichende Gesamtwurdigung und Empfehlungen an den Gesetzgeber enthalt.

English summary: The notion of sovereignty seems to have lost much of its plausibility in national and transnational thought. Ulrich Haltern reminds us, however, of the tenacity of sovereignty. In a genealogical and cultural study, he shows that sovereignty continues to shape our ideas of law and of political issues; it is the interface between law and violence, making it a key term in describing the world of law, politics and ourselves. The author begins by dealing with the story of progress in international law. He studies the development of Catholic and Protestant sovereignty and in doing so examines issues pertaining to the Christian legacy, the will of the voting public and sovereignty as a metaphysical promise of political thought and human dignity. He then does a detailed study of sovereignty in (German) international law and in European Community law. German description: Der Begriff der Souveranitat scheint heute viel von seiner Plausibilitat fur das Denken von staatlicher und uberstaatlicher Gemeinschaft eingebusst zu haben. Ulrich Haltern zeigt jedoch anhand einer genealogischen Untersuchung, dass Souveranitat nach wie vor unsere Vorstellungen des Rechts und des Politischen intensiv pragt; sie ist eine Schnittstelle von Recht und Gewalt. Dadurch wird Souveranitat zum Schlusselbegriff in der Beschreibung der Welt des Rechts, der Politik und unserer selbst. Der Autor geht zunachst der volkerrechtlichen Erzahlung vom Fortschritt nach. Er untersucht die Entwicklung der katholischen und protestantischen Souveranitat und geht dabei auf Fragen nach dem christlichen Erbe, dem Willen des Volkssouverans, der Souveranitat als metaphysisches Versprechen des Politischen und der Menschenwurde ein. Detailliert untersucht er darauf die Souveranitat im (deutschen) Volkerrecht und die Souveranitat im Europarecht.

Jürgen Habermas’ Werk Faktizität und Geltung. Beiträge zur Diskurstheorie des Rechts und des demokratischen Rechtsstaats (1992) verdient aus zwei Gründen besonderes Interesse: Erstens gehört es zu den Hauptwerken dieses bedeutenden Philosophen, der darin eine neue Begründung der Prinzipien des demokratischen Rechtsstaats, zugleich aber auch eine Summe seiner sozialtheoretischen und ethischen Denkens (Theorie des kommunikativen Handelns und Diskursethik) präsentiert; und zweitens ist dieses Werk ein herausragender Beitrag zur neueren Rechtsphilosophie, da darin in systematischer Weise eine innovative Theorie des Rechts entwickelt wird, die das Erfordernis der Faktizität des Rechts mit dessen normativer Sollgeltung in Einklang zu bringen versucht. Die Bedeutung dieses Werks für die gegenwärtige Sozial-, Rechts- und Politikphilosophie legt es nahe, ihm einen Band der Reihe „Klassiker Auslegen“ zu widmen, in dem es einer eingehenden kritischen Erörterung und Würdigung unterzogen wird. Der Band hat entsprechend der Konzeption der ganzen Reihe die Form eines kritischen Kommentars, in dem nach einer Einleitung der Herausgeber die Kapitel des Werks sukzessive von renommierten Autoren resümiert, interpretiert und kritisch diskutiert werden.

On European and global levels, new and interconnected constitutional structures have emerged, prompting new questions and challenges. The Euro crisis, the struggles between domestic and European courts, and the global "war against terror" have made these new developments visible and tangible also for a wider public. Verfassungsblog has, in cooperation with Recht im Kontext at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, emerged as a leading platform for a new networked transnational constitutional discourse which is now analyzed in the research project "Verfassungsblog: Perspectives of Scientific Communication in Legal Scholarship" at Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin. With contributions by Marten Breuer, Artur Dyevre, Andreas Fischer-Lescano, Christian Joerges, Jan Komarek, Matthias Kottmann, Hanno Kube, Mattias Kumm, Matthias Lehnert, Philip Liste, Franz C. Mayer, Martin Nettesheim, Ingolf Pernice, Ulrich K. Preua, Florian Rodl, Frank Schorkopf, Jo Shaw, Daniel Thym, Maja Walter et al.
