Canada in the World : Comparative Perspectives on the Canadian Constitution, Paperback / softback Book

Canada in the World : Comparative Perspectives on the Canadian Constitution Paperback / softback

Edited by Richard (Boston College, Massachusetts) Albert, David R. (Yale University, Connecticut) Cameron

Part of the Comparative Constitutional Law and Policy series

Description

In this volume marking the Sesquicentennial of Confederation in Canada, leading scholars and jurists discuss the evolution of the Canadian Constitution since the British North America Act 1867; the role of the Supreme Court in interpreting the Constitution as a 'living tree' capable of application to new legal issues; and the growing influence of both the Constitution, with its entrenched Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the decisions of the Court on other constitutional courts dealing with a wide range of issues pertaining to human rights and democratic government.

The contributors assess how the Canadian Constitution accommodates the cultural diversity of the country's territories and peoples while ensuring the universal applicability of its provisions; the role of the Court in interpreting and applying the Constitution; and the growing global influence of the Constitution and decisions of the Court on legislatures and courts in other countries.
