  • Abstract

      This paper will investigate for the influence of international legal developments on the drafting and implementation of constitutions, especially the impact of the European Union on the texts of the national constitutions of the EU Member States and its acceding countries.
      We will look also at:

      1. the influence of history (EU Enlargement) and tradition in the drafting and implementation of constitutions;

      2. assessment (especially in the case of the Netherlands) of whether constitutional texts actually serve to achieve the practical implementation of expressed purposes.
