Israeli Constitutional Law in the Making, Hardback Book

Israeli Constitutional Law in the Making Hardback

Edited by Gideon Sapir, Daphne Barak-Erez, Aharon Barak

Part of the Hart Studies in Comparative Public Law series

Description

In the domain of comparative constitutionalism, Israeli constitutional law is a fascinating case study constituted of many dilemmas.

It is moving from the old British tradition of an unwritten constitution and no judicial review of legislation to fully-fledged constitutionalism endorsing judicial review and based on the text of a series of basic laws.

At the same time, it is struggling with major questions of identity, in the context of Israel's constitutional vision of 'a Jewish and Democratic' state.

Israeli Constitutional Law in the Making offers a comprehensive study of Israeli constitutional law in a systematic manner that moves from constitution-making to specific areas of contestation including state/religion relations, national security, social rights, as well as structural questions of judicial review.

It features contributions by leading scholars of Israeli constitutional law, with comparative comments by leading scholars of constitutional law from Europe and the United States.
