Abstract

With a new constitutional amendment (Federal Law Gazette I No. 2/2008), Austrian constitutional law has seen its most comprehensive reform since 1945. In particular, the fragmented structure of Austrian constitutional law had previously been seen as a failure of the constitution in its functional approach as a basic order of a society and led to various attempts to reform Austrian constitutional law. But earlier constitutional amendments resulted only in a further complication of Austrian constitutional law.

Keywords: Austrian constitutional law
