Procedures for constitutional amendments: features, outcomes and consequences
The project aims to analyze the procedures for constitutional amendments in light of the main factors of transformation which have characterized Italy and the democratic legal orders.
The programme includes 2 different lines of research:
- The elaboration of a review of the constitutional amendments models in the comparative law;
- The analysis of the main procedural problems concerning the formation and implementation of constitutional reforms in Italy. With regard to the iter of formation of constitutional reforms, the research will examine the constitutional metanorm as well as the sub-constitutional metanorm (Rules of procedure, ordinary legislation, case-law, etc.) concerning the constitutional amendments procedure. With regard to the implementation, the research will verify in what manner the constitutional reforms have “delegated” strategic choices to the judges and normative autonomy of the Parliament.
