Chapter 10: The evolving paradigm of human rights protection as interpreted and influenced by the Venice Commission
Over time the European Commission for Democracy through Law became an essential point of reference for advice in constitution making. The expansion of membership, activities and functions gradually transformed it from a European institution into a global, transnational, constitutional forum involved with constitutional issues. This essay is addressing the way in which the Venice Commission – interpreting the legal theories and the doctrines and elaborating the yardsticks of conditionality which they have to apply – contributes to the formation of international constitutional law and, more specifically, to the recognition of the standards of Europe’s Constitutional Heritage, with particular attention to the field of fundamental rights’ protection.
