Show Summary Details


The Hungarian Constitution attempts to regulate, although not very successfully, the relationship between international law, Community law, and national law in Articles 2/A and 7. However, the Constitution neither determines the status of Community law in the Hungarian legal system, nor explicitly regulates the status of international law. On the one hand, primary Community law (i.e., only treaty law) is to be handled according to the aforementioned articles, while on the other hand, the Hungarian legal system adopts a dualist approach towards international law. Thus, the Hungarian legal system is not particularly friendly to international agreements.
