Comparative Constitutional Law

Level of study: Master

The course “Comparative Constitutional Law” covers series of topics within comparative study of constitutional as well as quasi-constitutional systems. It is aimed to investigate the concepts and structures of the constitutions and the constitutional law institutions in Russia and foreign countries through all over the world from a comparative perspective. The main idea of the course is to prove that the constitutionalism is the balanced system of a society organization. There are a lot of constitutional balances. The main of them is the balance between human liberty and the state power. The most significant institutions of the constitution law such as human rights, systems of government, judicial review, and the territory organization of modern states are analyzed from the perspective of the system of the constitutional balances. The course introduces students to the different models of the constitutionalism (inclined to presidential or parliament ones) and quasiconstitutionalism (including religious (Islamic), party (socialist), inertial (bureaucratic, post-socialist), military (Latin American), tribal (African), superficial (elite) and unstable (revolutionary) models) in history and the modern world.

The main objectives of this course are the following:
1. Transformation of students understanding of the constitutional law role in establishing effective government system;
2. Investigating actual constitutional law problems and analysis of different approaches to these problems solutions in Russia and foreign countries.
