  • The Hungarian Constitutional Court on the Limits of EU Law in the Hungarian Legal System

    —Tímea Drinóczi, University of Pécs, Hungary Last month, on November 30, just one week after the Seventh Constitutional Amendment had failed,[1] the Constitutional Court declared in its ruling 22/2016 (XII. 5.) that by exercising its competences, it can examine whether the joint exercise of competences under Article E) (2) of the Fundamental Law of Hungary (FL) infringes human dignity, other fundamental rights, the sovereignty of Hungary, or Hungary’s self-identity based on its historical constitution.
