Today the fifth volume of our Hart Studies in Constitutional Theory is published, entitled Constitutionally Conforming Interpretation – Volume 1: National Reports!
As editor, Professor Klatt has united eighteen other outstanding legal scholars around the world to present the canon of constitutionally conforming interpretation. The book is the first part of a 2-volume set that contains an in-depth investigation into the topic. These volumes address the fundamental issues the canon raises in the national, supranational and international contexts.
In volume 1, experts from 19 jurisdictions, including Brazil, Canada, India, the UK, and the USA, provide reports which give concise overviews of the approaches and debates on constitutionally conforming interpretation. These reports cover the structural background, the conditions of application, as well as issues of competence. Further aspects discussed are its perceived normativity and popularity in everyday legal practice.
