The draft law on the Polish Constitutional Tribunal: Genesis and key proposals

  • Tomasz Zalasiński

The publication is a brief description of the most important elements of the drafts of the law on the Constitutional Tribunal, which were prepared by members of the Team of Legal Experts at the Batory Foundation. Many experts, practitioners and representatives of civil society organisations have also been involved in the work on the proposed reform and endorsed their support. The aim of the projects is to create a Tribunal that genuinely exercises independent constitutional control, operating in a transparent manner and safeguarding it against further attempts to ‘hijack’ it for political purposes.
