Restoring Constitutionalism

How to deal with a constitution which has been turned into a tool to perpetuate the governing party’s power even in the case of a lost election? How to dispose of these undemocratic constraints without violating the rule of law oneself? A situation like this might arise in Hungary in Spring 2022 if the unified opposition manages to win a majority over Viktor Orbán’s Fidesz party. Two towering figures of constitutional scholarship, Andrew Arato and András Sajó, have addressed questions to the global constitutionalist community on how to deal with this dilemma. We publish a collection of answers in collaboration with THE NEW INSTITUTE in Hamburg.
