JUDICON at the IPSA World Congress

The paper of Eric Láštic and Max Steuer was accepted for presentation at the IPSA World Congress in Brisbane, Australia (July 21-25, 2018). The paper uses the methodology and dataset generated within the JUDICON project that allow to identify how the Slovak Constitutional Court has positioned itself vis-à-vis changing legislative majorities between 1993-2015 and whether there has been a period in which it used its legislating capacities beyond the average standard.

Paper accepted in the German Law Journal

A paper discussing the methodological framework as well as the analysis of initial Hungarian data has been accepted for publication in the German Law Journal. The paper titled “How to measure the strength of judicial decisions?” written by Kálmán Pócza, Gábor Dobos, and Attila Gyulai covers the approach elaborated by the JUDICON project.


JUDICON organized a panel at this years’ ECPR in the Law and Court section (6-9, September, Oslo). The papers to be presented will cover the Slovakian, the German, the Romanian case, and a time-series cross national analysis. The papers will be presented by Max Steuer (Department of Political Science, Faculty of Arts, Comenius University Bratislava), Oliver Lembcke (Institute of Political Science, Friedrich Schiller University Jena), Csongor Kuti (Faculty of Arts, Univeristy of Targu Mures) and Gábor Dobos - Attila Gyulai - Kálmán Pócza (Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Institute for Political Science).
