Unconstitutional Constitutional Amendments : The Limits of Amendment Powers Hardback
by Yaniv (Assistant Professor, Assistant Professor, Radzyner School of Law, Interdisciplinary C Roznai
Part of the Oxford Constitutional Theory series
Can constitutional amendments be unconstitutional? The problem of 'unconstitutional constitutional amendments' has become one of the most widely debated issues in comparative constitutional theory, constitutional design, and constitutional adjudication.
This book describes and analyses the increasing tendency in global constitutionalism to substantively limit formal changes to constitutions.
The challenges of constitutional unamendability to constitutional theorybecome even more complex when constitutional courts enforce such limitations through substantive judicial review of amendments, often resulting in the declaration that these constitutional amendments are 'unconstitutional'. Combining historical comparisons, constitutional theory, and a wide comparative study, Yaniv Roznai sets out to explain what the nature of amendment power is, what its limitations are, and what the role of constitutional courts is and should be when enforcing limitations on constitutional amendments.
