This e-book collects “year-in-review” reports on developments in the constitutional law in the year 2016 from 44 jurisdictions, on five continents. The reports were prepared by researchers well versed in their legal system, often in\ud migration of ideas across the community of constitutional interpreters. These national reports present an accessible overview of the most notable constitutional events in each jurisdiction. Each report starts with an introduction to the constitution and the high court in a given jurisdiction and then continues with a narrative exposition of up to two significant controversies. This is not always a case-based account and it may examine long-burgeoning constitutional developments that arose prior to 2016. The third section then isolates the year 2016, for which each report gives an overview of selected judgments. The short case notes are divided into sub-sections covering subjects that may include the separation of powers, rights and freedom, as well as foreign, international and/or multilateral relations. Authors conclude with observations on the path of the constitutional development in their jurisdiction or sometimes offer a cautious forecast of the future. This e-book is primarily descriptive and explanatory, although there is inevitably also some critical commentary
