XVIth Congress 2014

The Conference of European Constitutional Courts and its Congresses provide an extremely important pan-European forum for a comprehensive, multilateral exchange of opinions, ideas and experience on substantive issues, as stated in the preamble to the Statute of the Conference.

Against this background, the Austrian Constitutional Court, host to a conference already in 1978, organized the Congress in 2014, thus underlining the importance it attributes to this pan-European platform.

Key data of the XVIth Congress of the Conference of European Constitutional Courts:

  • 12 to 14 May 2014 at the Vienna Hofburg
  • Participants: the full members, the associate member, as well as observers and guests – as decided at the Circle of Presidents in 2012
  • Theme: "The Co-operation of Constitutional Courts in Europe – Current Situation and Perspectives"
