Comparing Constitutions and International Constitutional Law: A Primer


Axel Tschentscher


Bern University - Law School

February 10, 2011


Abstract:     
While comparing constitutions belongs to the ubiquitous activities of constitutional lawyers and political scientists, the methodology of comparison is not very developed in constitutional law. No doubt, intercultural dialogue is required to handle rich substantive comparisons. But such dialogue is hindered by divergent constitutional traditions rendering it difficult to even find an entry point for comparisons. The text-oriented approach is suggested here as an entry method and the dialectical approach as the overall method of comparison.
