By L.F.M. Besselink and R.A. Wessel


This study analyzes the effect of international law under the Netherlands Constitution. It sketches new developments in the international legal order which affect the effect of international law of various nature in the Netherlands legal order. It argues that the Netherlands system is based on a pure hierarchy of norms independent on the constitutional nature of the international norms. It pleads for reinforcing constitutionally the direct effect and primacy of international law by broadening them to customary law, especially ius cogens, and by making primacy dependent on compatibility with the fundamental principles of democracy and the rule of law in the Netherlands
