Abstract

This paper examines the legitimacy of judicial review of the merits of proposed new constitutions and constitutional amendments. But we first have to deal with a preliminary question: Are constitution-making and constitutional-amending organs subject to any internal or external constraints in terms of the substantive solutions they may employ in drafting new constitutions or amending existing ones?

Keywords: constitutional amendments, judicial review, comparative constitutional law
