60 Years German Basic Law: The German Constitution and its Court

Landmark Decisions of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany in the Area of Fundamental Rights

The core principle of the German Basic Law - the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Germany since 1949 - is the Rule of Law or the broader concept of the 'Rechtsstaat'. The protection of fundamental rights is one important cornerstone of this principle. As the guardian of the Constitution, the Federal Constitutional Court has shaped these rights through interpretation by a large body of case law. Taking note of the growing interest among scholars not only in continental Europe but more so in the Common Law world, an extensive English translation of that jurisprudence is very timely.

Jahrestag des Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs teil. Beide Eingeladenen wurden durch Sondergesandte vertreten. Obwohl es also nicht zu einer innerkoreanischen Annäherung auf europäischem Boden gekommen ist, gibt es Indizien, die dafür sprechen, dass stattdessen Russland über die koreanische Halbinsel Einfluss auf die demokratischen Mächte des Westens nehmen könnte.
