The 2006 Constitution of Serbia makes ample references to international law in general and to international law sources in particular. A number of these provisions refer to the general position of international treaties within the national legal order, whereas several constitutional provisions discuss treaties within a more particular context. Serbian courts are empowered to apply treaties without demanding any implementing legislation. The priority of international treaties over national legislation has been recognized within the constitutional system of Serbia throughout several constitutional periods.
