Passivist Strategies Available to the Hungarian Constitutional Court

Petra Lea Láncos
 
 
The Hungarian Constitutional Court is operating in the context of a new Law on the Constitutional Court, new Rules of Procedure and a new, “moving target” constitution. To preserve its role in the Hungarian constitutional order, it seems that the Court is making use of passivist strategies to avoid confrontation with the government and the legislator and at the same time retain influence over safeguarding constitutional values. The present paper maps the passivist strategies pursued by the Court employed in cases involving “politically charged questions”.
