This Italian-Dutch collaboration provides the first comparative thematic coverage of the Constitution of the Netherlands in English. The book’s unique method of a dialectic confrontation between scholars from different countries yields fascinating discussions about famous peculiarities of the Dutch Constitution. Among other subjects, the volume covers the Dutch Constitution’s extreme openness towards international and European law, its combination of parliamentary democracy and a monarchy, its political consensus culture, and its ban of constitutional review by the judiciary. This book aspires to be a helpful account of Dutch constitutional law as well as a useful contribution to global constitutional literature. As the two leading constitutional scholars Tom Ginsburg and James Melton aptly noted, the successful constitutional experience of the Netherlands can be a source of inspiration for other countries who seek to enhance the endurance and efficacy of their own constitutional arrangements. The Dutch Constitution beyond 200 Years will be a reference point for all students and scholars eager to engage in insightful debates surrounding one of the oldest and most efficient constitutions of the world.
