Polish-Hungarian Research Platform

 

 

The international research project “Polish-Hungarian Research Platform” was set up to carry out in-depth analyses on the change of the constitution, the rule of law, reform of the administrative judiciary and the effectiveness of the judiciary. The project partner is the Ferenc Mádl Institute of Comparative Law.

 

The proposed project purpose is to carry out research and activities aimed at analyzing the nature of the legislative process regarding changes to the Constitution (in the light of European integration and constitutional identity); rule of law; reforms of the administrative judiciary; efficiency of the judiciary.

 

In addition, the research project involves the publication of at least 4 peer-reviewed scientific monographs; organizing at least 7 monthly international scientific conferences and an international scientific conference at the end of the project.

 

The research carried out under this project should lead to the stimulation of in-depth and at the same time broad discussion correlating with the subject matter of the title.

 

For this reason, it is important that the final products of the project are properly promoted. Additionally, the analysis of the above research should lead to the development of a number of de lege ferenda postulates for the Polish, Hungarian and European legislators. The obtained results should be applicable both in theory and practice.

 

 

 

Project goals:

 

  1. Nature of the legislative process adopted to amend the Constitution (in light of European integration and constitutional identity): The aim is to understand the mechanisms and factors influencing the process of constitutional amendment in a democratic state ruled by law;
  2. Rule of law principle: The aim is to define the correct understanding of the concept of the rule of law (rationale, evaluation, implementation, correlation of the rule of law with the EU legal state, etc;)
  3. Reform of administrative judiciary: The aim is to learn about new mechanisms, structure and organization, as well as the functioning of administrative judiciary in order to conduct administrative proceedings fairly;
  4. Effectiveness of the judiciary: The aim is to test the efficiency, i.e. the efficiency, duration and complexity of cases dealt with in courts.

The above goals are only inspiration, their specification depends on the Heads of Research Teams.
