Le Grand-Duché est candidat pour un siège au Conseil des droits de l’homme des Nations Unies. La question de la défense des droits et libertés se pose donc au plan national. Le Gouvernement a adopté son Plan d’Action National pour la mise en oeuvre des Principes directeurs des Nations Unies relatifs aux entreprises et aux droits de l’homme. La révision constitutionnelle, en chantier depuis 2009, marque cependant un arrêt. L’espoir de disposer, dès 2020, d’un chapitre rénové relatif aux droits et libertés s’est éloigné. Le rôle actif des institutions locales des droits de l’homme mérite d’être tiré de l’ombre. Leur regroupement en un lieu unique, appelé « Maison des Droits de l’Homme » (Mënscherechthaus), permettra de remédier à leur fragmentation. Il a paru salutaire de dresser un bilan de la défense des droits humains en s’intéressant aux rôles respectifs et à la concertation des acteurs nationaux et européens. Le présent ouvrage reprend les travaux d’une conférence qui s’est tenue à l’Université le 16 décembre 2019. Il agrège les contributions actualisées d’éminents universitaires, magistrats, avocats et défenseurs des droits de l’homme. Complété d’un riche matériel de référence, l’ouvrage renouvelle la réflexion sur la défense concrète des droits humains et devrait interpeller, au-delà des cercles initiés, tout(e) citoyen(ne) intéressé(e).

"Droit luxembourgeois et européen de l'asile" est un ouvrage collectif consacré à l'étude du droit de la protection internationale au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg. Fondé sur une analyse thématique de la légilsation pertinente, cet ouvrage apporte un éclairage critique des différentes étapes d'une demande de protection internatinale, de son dépôt par le candidat à l'asile à l'adoption d'une décision finale par le ministre compétent. Il est ainsi question d'aborder aussi bien les démarches antérieures et ultérieures à la décision ministérielle d'octroi ou de refus de la protection internationale comme celles relatives à l'accès aux conditions matérielles d'accueil, le droit à l'assistance judiciaire, la détermination de l'âge des jeunes candidats à l'asile, l'accès au marché du travail, les modalités liées au regroupement familial et le sort des déboutés. Le contentieux de la protection internationale fait également l'objet d'analyses approfondies. Cette étude est ainsi l'occasion de mettre en évidence l'évolution et les tensions rencontrées aussi bien dans la jurisprudence administrative luxembourgeoise que dans la jurisprudence européenne (CJUE) et internationale (CourEDH). La diversité des auteurs de cet ouvrage collectif (avocats, magistrats, chercheurs, administrations, ONG, psychologues) apporte une expertise interdisciplinaire permettant de mieux appréhender et questionner le droit de l'asile. Digiré par des chercheurs issus de la Faculté de Droit, d'Économie et de Finance de l'Université du Luxembourg, cet ouvrage collectif se révèlera un outil indispensable aussi bien pour les chercheurs, les praticiens du droit que pour les étudiants.

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.

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.

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 ▲]
