Abstract

Israel's development of constitutional law without a written constitution presents a fascinating picture of how a system, unable to develop a constitution in the usual manner, has developed one in another manner. It shows how innovative lawmaking can be - and sometimes must be - to maintain a democratic political system.

Keywords: Israel, constitutional law, governmental structures, Knesset, constitutions, religion
