            The Making of a European Constitution: Judges and Law Beyond Constitutive Power
             

            The Making of a European Constitution: Judges and Law Beyond Constitutive Power (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Everson, Michelle; Eisner, Julia

            An original and innovative recasting of constitutionalism, written by acknowledged experts in the field, this empirically grounded and theoretically informed volume addresses the strategies and philosophies that judges and lawyers bring to bear when creating European constitution...al jurisprudence; investigating and promoting promotes the sustainability of a theory or praxis of 'procedural' constitutionalism. Building upon European and American critical legal scholarship, Michelle Everson and Julia Eisner argue that constitutional adjudication has never been the neutral matter of a mere judicial 'identification' of the values, norms and procedures that each society seeks to concretise in its own body of constitutional law. Instead, a 'mythology' of comprehensive national constitutional settlement has obscured the primary legal constitutional conundrum that is created by the requirement that a judiciary must always adapt its constitutional jurisprudence to the evolving values that are to be found within any society; but must always, also, maintain the integrity and autonomy of the law itself. European judges and lawyers, having been denied recourse to all forms of constitutional mythology, provide us with an alternative model of constitutionalism; one that does not require a founding myth of constitutional settlement, and one which both secures the autonomy of law, as well as ensures dialogue between law and society. This occurs, however, not through grand theories of 'constitutional adjudication' but, as The Making of a European Constitution documents, rather through a practical process.

            This book analyses multi-level governance in competition policy, or antitrust federalism as it is called by students of competition policy, in the US and the EU from a comparative perspective. The book compares how competition laws and authorities of different levels - the federa...l and the state levels in the US and the national and the supranational levels in the EU - interact with each other. The EU and the US stand among the strongest existing examples of multi-level polities and they developed mature competition policies. Despite such similarities, however, recent developments imply that they are moving in different directions in the field of antitrust federalism. Inspired by these divergent policy developments taking place at both sides of the Atlantic, the book addresses three principal research questions: firstly, what are the key similarities and differences between the US and the EU in terms of antitrust federalism; secondly, what are the reasons for differences (if any), and finally, can the US and the EU draw any policy lessons from each others' experiences in antitrust federalism? The book is essentially multidisciplinary in nature and it aims to initiate a dialogue between the law and political science literatures in its field. The book argues that the legal literature of antitrust federalism has employed out of date regulatory competition models which do not reflect the complexities of policy enforcement in modern multi-level polities. The book suggests that policy network models provide a more suitable framework for this analysis; and it critically reviews the British and Continental European policy network models. The book uses the common conceptual framework of European policy network models as the main analytical framework in the analysis of antitrust federalism. However, the book also shows that constitutional courts significantly affect different network designs in different polities through interpretation of constitutional power sharing and exerc

By researching the evolution of nine major legislations using a consistent lens, the work interrogates the suitability of exist...ing political theories to explain the policy development process in an emerging economy like India. It covers recent events such as the agitation for the Jan Lokpal Bill and the Nirbhaya case that have underlined the role of non-government players in law-making in India as well as long-standing movements like for right to information, right to education, and food security.

            This book examines the interaction of law and politics in postcolonial Africa. The basic narrative emphasizes the continuities of contemporary legal practices with the jurisprudence of colonial government, grounded in what is known as `imperial liberalism'. The analysis focuses o...n the production of specifically postcolonial forms of legality - understood as the empirical outcomes of the state legal system. Of particular interest is the evolution of legality in the core domain of the law of the state itself, that is, the constitution and subsidiary statute pertaining to the powers of the executive. It is argued, based on a number of detailed and interlinked case studies from Zambia, that the epoch of radical deregulation in the wake of the Cold War dismantled much of the post-independence party-state apparatus and thus turned a page in the formative processes of state formation. This transformation has been reflected in, and further amplified by, a radical reworking of the ways that state legality plays out. Central to this radical shift was a profound reorientation of the legal profession as lawyers, enriched and empowered by the novel opportunities of the liberalized market economy in the nineties, quite suddenly achieved unprecedented levels of financial and political autonomy from the state. A key motif in the book relates to the ways lawyers, and to some extent judges, have responded to their new-found autonomy, and how these concomitant resources have been deployed in the realm of politics.
