Summary
The enactment of national legislation intended unilaterally to nullify the application of international treaty obligations is generally referred to as "treaty override". However, specifically in Germany, doubts have been raised as to whether such a treaty override might be unconstitutional in light of the principle of "pacta sunt servanda" and the principle of the rule of law. In a lengthy decision issued on 15 December 2015, the German Constitutional Court has rejected these arguments, emphasizing that a democratically elected parliament must be able, within the scope of the constitution, to amend domestic legislation. The authors review this decision and discuss the issue of treaty overrides with respect to the Austrian legal system
