B��ckenf��rde on Legislation - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker 781
Legislation/Constitution/Constitutional Court/Böckenförde: Problem: Böckenförde sees the danger that the role of the Constitutional Court will be interpreted and overburdened by politics to the effect that the Constitutional Court will be transformed into an institution of legislation. See State/Böckenförde, Jurisprudence/Böckenförde, Constitution/Böckenförde, Fundamental Rights/Böckenförde.
Böckenförde speaks of a development towards a constitutional state with jurisdiction. (1)
Wrong solution: Judicial self-restriction is not resilient.
Solution/Böckenförde: there is no other way than to return to the understanding of fundamental rights as subjective rights of defence (see Fundamental Rights/Böckenförde).
Constitution/Böckenförde: should accordingly be regarded as a framework for the state and for the relationship between state and citizen, but not as a comprehensive basic order of the community.
