Abstract

This review essay is a book review of Antonios Kouroutakis, The Constitutional Value of Sunset Clauses: An Historical and Normative Analysis (Routledge, 2017). The essay argues that we are in the golden age of the study of temporary legislation, and places Kouroutakis’s book within the burgeoning global scholarship on temporary legislation. The essay then discusses the book’s contributions to the study of the history of sunset clauses and to the normative and theoretical debates about temporary legislation.
