Luxembourg is a well-integrated member state whose EU membership relies however on poorly developed constitutional foundations. This is yet to be changed by a major constitutional overhaul that is expected to come to an end in 2018. Three patterns must be born in mind to understand the country’s constitutional culture: the Constitution had been somewhat forgotten, its political system functions according to the idea of a ‘consensus democracy’ and its leading political principle is pragmatism. The only limit to further steps of EU integration is the requirement of a 2/3 majority within Parliament in order to approve any competence transferring treaty. I the pure monistic tradition the domestic legal order is conceived in a way to avoid conflicts with international or EU law. EU norms enjoy full primacy even vis-à-vis constitutional rules.

The paper considers ‘octroyed’, ‘conceded’ or ‘granted’ constitutions of 19th century Europe whose common roots are to be found in the French ‘Charte constitutionnelle’ of 1814. These Charters stem from a paternalistic process of domestic constitution-making engaged unilaterally by a monarch possessing the de facto constituent power and exercising it without the direct involvement of a body representing the people. Such octroyed constitutions, which are of course to be opposed to democratically established ones, show nevertheless a number of specific characteristics which distinguish them also from ‘imposed constitutions’ in the usual sense. The expression ‘constitutional octroy’ should not be used as a synonym for any process leading to an ‘imposed Constitution’. The contribution aims to develop and to validate or invalidate the value of a series of distinctive criteria and possible elements of a definition of ‘octroyed’ or ‘granted’ constitutions in order to underline their specificity.

The concept of human dignity is not enshrined in the Constitution of Luxembourg. It has entered the domestic legal order through international treaties and parliamentary acts since 1978. A draft of a new constitution, to be adopted in 2018, will procure constitutional value to human dignity in article 11. [less ▲]

Recent examples of constitutional amendments in Iceland and Ireland and the current debates in Scotland and Catalonia regarding referendums on regional autonomy have stimulated a renewal in academic research on the involvement of the people in constitution making and constitutional amendment including the question - raised recently in Switzerland – how to avoid that referendums bring about unlawful restrictions to fundamental rights. This raises a more general question of how to reconcile the basic principles of (direct) democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights. Such questions are also relevant for the legal situation in Luxembourg marked by the ongoing procedure of constitutional restatement, which was initiated in April 2009. The government decided indeed to submit several questions to a consultative referendum in 2015 before pursuing the parliamentary procedure and come to a final, decisive, referendum on the amendment proposal in 2016. This develop is part of a broader tendency to introduce, in Luxembourg and elsewhere, elements of direct democracy such as referendums, citizens’ initiatives and online petitions into political systems organized as representative democracies. The roundtable aims to identify and discuss the main procedural, legal and theoretical problems raised in general by popular consent in the field of constitutional change. [less ▲]

En droit constitutionnel la notion d'égalité peut revêtir différentes significations. Selon l'adage "ius respicit aequitatem" ce principe fondamental, inhérent à toute Constitution, émane de la dignité humaine et implique aussi bien l'égalité en droits que l'égalité devant la loi. Le panel s’intéressera aux problèmes auxquels se trouvent confrontés tant le Conseil d’Etat que le juge constitutionnel lorsqu’ils sont saisis d’une question d’égalité devant la loi. Déterminer les catégories de personnes et les situations comparables, et, en cas de comparabilité avérée, apprécier si la différenciation est rationnellement justifiée, proportionnée et adéquate au but poursuivi, n’est pas en effet une tâche aisée. D’autant plus que le droit européen et le droit comparé nous enseignent par ailleurs que le principe d’égalité ne veut pas seulement que des situations comparables soient traitées de la même manière mais exige aussi que des situations différentes soient traitées différemment [less ▲]
