European and Polish constitutionalism in the aftermath of WW1
The paper analyses the intersections of Polish and European constitutionalism in the inter-war period. Although Poland had followed a unique constitutional path due to its historical background, nevertheless the general constitutional tendencies of that time still influenced the 1921 Constitution, as happened for example with the long and detailed bill of rights (full of both liberal and social rights), the important role of parliamentary system, the republican ideas, the strong democratic stance of the Constitution. The inter-war constitutionalism remains an important reference point for the following constitutional waves in Europe.
