Summary
This book provides an introduction to Kantian constitutional theory and the law and politics of European rights protection. Part I sets out Kant's blueprint for achieving Perpetual Peace, and to the elaboration of a Kantian-congruent model of constitutional justice, both within and beyond the nation state. Part II applies this theoretical framework to explain the gradual constitutionalization of a cosmopolitan legal order: a transnational legal system in which justiciable rights are held by individuals; where public officials bear the obligation to fulfill the fundamental rights of all who come within the scope of their jurisdiction; and where domestic and transnational judges supervise how officials act. The book argues that this order has emerged in Europe thanks to the combined effects of Protocol no. 11 (1998) of the European Convention on Human Rights and the incorporation of the Convention into national law
