Court as a Policy-Maker?: The Role and Effects of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Democratic Transition and Consolidation

Nedim Kulenović
2016

In line with contemporary theories on the position and role of the constitutional adjudication in a democratic system, this study offers a comprehensive analysis of the role and performance of the Constitutional Court of BiH in the last twenty years. Numerous existing evaluations and analyses, being rather cursory and partial, have almost completely neglected the issue of the quality of work and decisions of this Court. Thus, we believe that the perspective provided by this study will contribute to a fuller understanding of the role of Constitutional Court in the constitutional and political system of BiH, as well as bring more arguments in the discussions on the present and the future of this immensely important institution in the context of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
