The Two Centennials: Austrian Flavours in the Constitution of Liechtenstein
The Two Centennials: Austrian Flavours in the Constitution of Liechtenstein - To some extent, Austrian flavours are noticeable in the Constitution of Liechtenstein enacted one year after the Federal Constitutional Act of 1920. Most important of these is the institution of the State Court which, even though differing from the Austrian Constitutional Court, strongly relies on Austrian and Swiss case law, especially in a human rights context. Not only do Liechtenstein’s own constitutional traditions go far back into the 19th century, however, but also the constitutional evolution over the past century – above all the reform of 2003 – are token of autochthonous developments in the specific context of a microstate and monarchy.
