Constitutional Law 2 (Political Institutions)

Penelope Fountedaki - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Political Science and History, Panteion University

The course aims to provide the methodological tools needed to understand the nature of law and constitutional law in particular. The Constitutional Law as the fundamental map of a state, due to its3 object moves between the legal norm and the political act. For this reason,it is an area of intense wrangling, ideological structures and revisions according to the human development, societies and states. Often the Constitution is used in a distorting manner as a tool to achieve fair and unfair political objectives. Its main contradiction is its very content of it: On the one defines how the person is protected, the citizen, social groups, from any arbitrary state-vices,while on the other regulates the state structure defining the relations of state institutions and the specific way of exercising power. For the political scientist, all these qualities of law and the Constitution are absolutely necessary to capture the dominating phenomenon,the action limits for those who exercise power and the position of individuals and groups, towards these, to ultimately understand the state under the dual ,law and politic, dimension. The approach of constitutional phenomenon requires a critical attitude towards the settings, the willing to demystify and continuous repositioning of concepts. The topics listed refer to the law, the state, the system of government, the Constitution and the sources of constitutional law.
