The procedure for appointment of judges: what possible reforms to improve the Constitutional Courts’ legitimacy?


In order to ensure a high quality of the decisions of the Constitutional Courts and, in the same time, their legitimacy, the procedure for appointment of the judges is essential. This procedure is too often politically motivated. As a result, the legitimacy of the High Courts is often questioned, even in the countries where there are no particular crises in their functioning. In her analysis, Ms. Danelciuc-Colodrovschi sets out to analyze the different models for appointing constitutional judges in comparative law and their possible effects on the functioning of the institution of constitutional review. This analysis will allow her to consider possible future developments in this area that could make it possible to remedy the crises experienced in Europe, more particularly in Eastern countries.
