Abstract

In examining the substance of freedom of assembly, emphasis was given to defining the aim and function of this fundamental right. The interpretation of freedom of assembly in this paper is constructed on this basis together with the case law of the Constitutional Court that provided an important source of constitutional benchmarks. These benchmarks may serve as guidelines when exercising the right of assembly. Only when the function of freedom of assembly in protecting minority interests is respected, can we expect that this right, which entails many risks, helps reinforcing respect for the Constitution.
