The fourth subproject examines the discontinuities in the relationship of constitutional courts and other political authorities during and through the financial and economic crisis.
The project will analyze which modes of decision-making courts have applied to do so and if they succeeded in creating dialogue between courts and political authorities that might contribute to a productive conflict resolution. A productive conflict resolution can be assumed if constitutional rights can be protected without ruling out political reforms of existent social security systems.
Furthermore, the subproject questions to which extent the concrete techniques of decision-making initiated a transnational dialogue between national and European courts during the financial and economic crisis. In this context, we hypothesize that such a dialogue has been launched mainly with regard to those types of conflicts that touch upon the horizon of solidarity, i.e. the question on which level solidarity conflicts ought to be decided and when these decisions can claim legitimacy.
