The case law of the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice with regard to the East-Central European countries
The Central European Professors’ Network, consisting of four research groups, launched its activities on 1 January 2021 to conduct research on a great variety of issues with regard to seven Central European countries (Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia). The Professors’ Network organises events with the primary aim to draw attention of the European citizens to the topics which are important and significant in connection with the future of Europe, in particular of Central Europe.
One of the research groups dealt with fundamental rights in Central Europe and the comparative analysis of the constitutional situation in Central Europe. Furthermore, the group focused on the comparative legal methodological analysis of the comparison with the similar methodology of the European Court of Human Rights.
The conference on the above issue will also function as a book launch of the book „Constitutional Reasoning and Constitutional Interpretation – Analysis on Certain Central European Countries” written by the members of the research group. Therefore, besides the conference presentations, the comparative legal book will also be presented as the main achievement of the research team. This book is a gap-filling contribution in the field of comparative constitutional law and a publication which sheds light on the most important Central European aspects of the issue.
The main organisers of the event are the Ferenc Mádl Institute of Comparative Law, the Hungarian Association for Comparative Law and the Central-European Association for Comparative Law.
