The Federal Constitution of the Swiss Confederation of 18 April 1999 represents the legal foundation of the state and as such contains a blue print for all state activities. This book offers an accurate introduction to Swiss constitutional law by discussing its structural principles such as the principle of the Rechtsstaat, federalism, democracy and social justice. Furthermore, the book explains the federal organs, their powers and functions. In addition, a special emphasis is placed on the fundamental rights guaranteed by Swiss constitutional law and their protection.

Presenting a succinct and updated account of Swiss constitutional law, the third edition of this book will be the ideal introduction for the interested English-speaking student. In addition, anybody interested in the foundation of the Swiss legal system will find the book a useful point of entry to this fascinating field of study.
