Een Grondwet voor Vlaanderen houdt de Vlaamse politiek en rechtsleer al meer dan twintig jaar bezig. Op 23 mei stelden de meerderheidspartijen in het Vlaams Parlement het Handvest voor Vlaanderen voor. Aangezien Vlaanderen louter een Als niet-bindende resolutie heeft het geen juridische implicaties, maar enkel een belangrijke politieke waarde.

De tekst toont ten eerste een sterke verbondenheid met de EU. Zo vervlochten de opstellers van het Handvest de grondrechtenbepalingen in de Grondwet met die in het EU-Grondrechtenhandvest wat voor een zeer uitgebreide grondrechtencatalogus zorgt.

Ook wordt bevestigd in de preambule dat Vlaanderen een natie is met eigen taal en cultuur. Het gebrek aan participatie van de andere politieke partijen en de burger in het totstandkomingsproces stootte echter op stevige kritiek. Nu sluimert het dossier al bijna een jaar in de bevoegde Commissie zonder enig parlementair debat.

Hopelijk zal dit ook gepaard gaan met intense parlementaire debatten en tekstuele verhelderingen. Zeker aangezien de opstellers vlaanveren Handvest beschouwen als een tussenstop naar een bindende Grondwet voor Vlaanderen. Bringing Rights More Home: Without attempting to disregard the Without attempting to disregard the national-specific elements, the discussion glaanderen these questions is very relevant for all States confronted with the influence of Strasbourg.

The tension between coherence, efficiency and autonomy is overarching. Both perspectives seem to be largely absent from the current academic debate.

Internally, judicial arguments are founded on concerns about separation of powers, limited jurisdiction, and accustomedness to the precedent system. In the second part, this article focuses on the potential impact of a home-grown Bill of Rights on the current relationship between both courts; concluding that a home-grown Bill of Rights will most handvst cause domestic courts to receive less latitude by Strasbourg and will not absolve domestic judges vlaandfren the duty of taking into account the Strasbourg case law.

Movement towards a Flemish Constitution: A Constitution for Flanders has been preoccupying Flemish politicians and scholars for over twenty years.

Since Flanders only has embryonic Since Flanders only has embryonic constitution-making power, this is not a proposal for a Constitution but merely a proposal for a resolution. As a non-binding resolution, the Charter has no legal implications, but rather an important political value. First, the text reveals a strong connection with the EU. The lack of participation of opposition parties and citizens in the drafting process was met with fierce criticism.


The dossier slumbered in the competent commission without any parliamentary debate for two years. Inthe Christian Democratic Party haandvest that the dossier would be reactivated. As a consequence, the proposal for a Charter expired. Hopefully, this reactivation will at least be accompanied with intense parliamentary debates and textual clarifications.

Especially, since the drafters consider the Charter a stepping-stone to a legally binding Constitution for Flanders. This article focuses on reform efforts at the national and European level to lessen the influence of the Strasbourg Court’s case law.

The article aims to determine to what extent this strategy will be successful. On the one hand, two On the one hand, two reform proposals to shield the influence of the European Court of Human Rights ECtHR through changing the dynamics at the national level are examined, namely the pending proposal to replace the Human Rights Act HRA with a home-grown Bill of Rights and the pending proposal in the Netherlands to extend the ban of judicial review to international treaties.

The UK reform proposal is the most likely to come into being. The Dutch reform proposal should instead be interpreted as a warning shot, since it is very unlikely to pass. Irrespective, this reform proposal would be a successful, albeit very drastic, measure to reduce the influence of the Strasbourg Court.

On the other hand, current efforts to reform the European level of rights protection are analysed with an emphasis on reform proposals vlanderen the need for more subsidiarity and a broader margin of appreciation.

These efforts resulted in Protocol 15, which has the vlaandrren to lessen the influence of the Strasbourg Court, although the Court has plenty of tools available to not let Protocol handfest result in a diminution of its influence. The sting is in the tail: This contribution first analyses the Subsequently, the future of the EU accession to the ECHR following the Opinion and the potential consequences for the Convention system are briefly examined.

Consequently, the hope to have finally arrived in the concluding stages of the strenuous thirty year long accession process seems once more crushed. Again, the sting is in the tail. Criticism of the European Court of Human Rights: Sporadic criticism of specific judgments of the European Court of Human Rights, especially handvesg sensitive matters, is common. However, widespread structural criticism is quite rare.

Even in countries, such as the Netherlands and Switzerland, where such proposals have been put forward, they failed to gain traction due to a lack of support by the full Government or a majority in Parliament.

In this sense, the UK is—as of now—still a unique vokr.

In vlor, one can wonder though to what extent the proposed changes are not principally directed at weakening the powers of the domestic courts—under the guise of strengthening their role by vlsanderen the perceived mission creep of the European Court of Human Rights.

The post-May election developments will reveal if the threats to leave the Convention system made by several Conservative members of government, including Prime Minister Cameron, are idle threats — merely part of a political rhetoric The post-May election developments will reveal if the threats to leave the Convention system made by several Vlaandersn members of government, including Prime Minister Cameron, are idle threats — merely part of a political rhetoric to win UKIP voters, satisfy the Euro-sceptic current within vlaandeden Conservative Party or pressure the ECtHR into offering a broader margin of appreciation and delivering restrictive judgments — or a truly realistic prospect.

The unexpected absolute majority of the Conservative Party in the House of Commons following the May general election makes the withdrawal scenario in any case a possible prospect. The domestic complexities of withdrawal cannot be underestimated. Withdrawal would call into question the devolution settlements for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland instigating political instability.


One can wonder whether there is sufficient political willingness to risk such developments. Furthermore, the domestic consequences for rights protection would be significant. With regard to matters that handest within the scope of EU law, the entanglement with the Convention system would remain and, if the EU accession to the ECHR solidifies, hajdvest grow much stronger. In relation to the Convention system, the withdrawal of the UK would result in the entire supranational structure of the Convention system loosing one of its foundational stones.

The collateral damage would be significant, if not, disastrous, potentially creating a corrosive effect throughout certain European states. Criticism of the European Court of Human Rights. For some time now, the European Court of Human Rights hqndvest under substantial pressure. From a case overload crisis it stumbled into a legitimacy crisis with regard to certain countries.

This should be vlaaneeren seriously, since scholars warn This should be taken seriously, since scholars warn that institutions with eroding legitimacy risk demise or reform.

The goal of this volume is to explore how widespread this critical attitude of the European Court of Human Rights really is.

It also assesses to what extent such criticism is being translated in strategies at the political level or at the judicial level and brings about concrete changes in the dynamics between national and European fundamental rights protection. The book is topical and innovative, as these questions have so far remained largely unexplored, especially cross-nationally.

Far from focusing exclusively on those voices that are currently raised so loud, conclusions are based on comparative in-depth reports, covering fifteen Contracting Parties and the EU. Belgique – Perspective comparatistes: The Danish Government has made the further reform of the Convention vlaamderen one of its priorities of its Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe from November till May In February, a draft Declaration In February, a draft Declaration was published in lead-up to handvdst High Level Conference set to take place in Copenhagen on 12 and 13 April While the draft contains the same three elements as previous Declarations, the rhetoric is different and several proposals are new.

Both deserve close attention. In a short series of blogposts, five academics based at Dutch and Belgian universities will comment on various aspects of the draft Copenhagen Declaration. Vood political handveat is not dialogue: The draft Declaration issued by the Danish Government primarily aims to strengthen the position of the States Parties in the Convention system.

If not fundamentally altered, this will most likely have an impact on the other stakeholders, in particular the individuals that claim to be the victim of a rights violation by a State Hanevest.

In contrast to the Brussels Declaration and even the Brighton Declaration, the overall emphasis has moved away from the urgent matter of better handvesf implementation of Convention rights and the execution of judgments, as already mentioned in the opening contribution of this series. Especially at a time when there is a clear regression of the rule of law in several States Parties, the lack of a strong agenda on this issue is highly problematic.

This should claanderen rectified in the final Declaration.
