The Role Of Dissenting And Concurring Opinions In The Constitutional Jurisdiction


  • Marieta Safta

    () (Titu Maiorescu University of Bucharest, Faculty of Law)


The Judges’ possibility to submit dissenting / concurring opinions is disputed as arguments are brought both for and against it in the context of the obligation to ensure the secrecy of deliberations. This study, bringing landmarks of the European Constitutional Courts’ legislation and case-law on the subject, demonstrates the role of the dissenting and concurring opinions in the development of the law, emphasizing the idea of balance for their formulation and grounds.
