New Normality? – Abstract #16

Jonas Heller: Democracy and state of exceptionas dialectic between demosand population. Within democratic orders, it is the declared aim of a state of exception to secure or restore the endangered foundation of democracy. The provided measures are undemocratic insofar they directly affect individual rights as the principle on which democracy is based. By suspending rights, the state of exception treats individuals not as members of a democratic community (demos), but as parts of a population which has to be secured. Whereas individuals rights enable individuals to be part … „New Normality? – Abstract #16“ weiterlesen

New Normality? – Abstract #15

Julian Müller: European Human Rights Protection in Times of Terrorism—the State of Emergency and the Emergency Clause of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). Like most human rights treaties, the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) contains an emergency clause (Art. 15 ECHR). This clause defines the conditions for—and the limits of—a derogation from the human rights obligations under the convention in the case of an emergency. Following the terrorist attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015, the state of emergency (état d’urgence) was … „New Normality? – Abstract #15“ weiterlesen

Jan Christoph Suntrup: The Symbolic Politics of the State of Exception: Images and Performances. This article discusses selected examples of the state of exception’s symbolic embeddedness and symbolic performances related to it. After suggesting a revision of a simplistic understanding of the term “symbolic politics” as developed by Murray Edelman and others who confine symbolic action mainly to the realm of deception and manipulation, the symbolic force of rhetoric in exceptional times will be demonstrated by looking at recent examples from the French context. In … „New Normality? – Abstract #14“ weiterlesen

New Normality? – Abstract #13

Dante Gatmaytan: Duterte, Judicial Deference, and Democratic Decay in the Philippines Democracy in the Philippines is in a state of decay. As with many other nations, the Constitution contains provisions allowing the Chief Executive to place the country or any part thereof in a state of exception in case of emergencies. This, however, is not a problem because the Constitution likewise ordained a system of checks and balances. To stave off abuse, the Judiciary, a co-equal branch of the Executive, was empowered to review any … „New Normality? – Abstract #13“ weiterlesen

New Normality? – Abstract #12

Annette Förster: The Expansion of Executive Force in the War on Terror and its Impact on Domestic and International Norms. Since the terrorist attacks on September 11 2001, the United States have been in a continuing state of emergency. The formal state of exception is one element of a two-headed development: the expansion of executive force accompanied by the reduction of democratic control mechanisms and legal protections from abuse. The balance of power between the branches has shifted and the limits of the legitimate exercise … „New Normality? – Abstract #12“ weiterlesen

New Normality? – Abstract #11

Ece Göztepe: The Permanency of the State of Emergency in Turkey. The Rise of a Constituent Power or Only a New Quality of the State? Working on the state of emergency/exception requires inevitably an idea of normality. For the first time the Roman law came up with the idea of ruling the state of exception before the exceptional conditions emerge and the Romans decided to locate the exceptional power beside the normal system. Even the terms and the content of the exceptional powers of the Roman … „New Normality? – Abstract #11“ weiterlesen

New Normality? – Abstract #10

Elisa Bertolini: Democracy and the State of Exception. The Italian experience. The Italian experience offers some interesting insights when dealing with the state of exception and emergency situations. The 1948 Constitution does not provide for any emergency section. Nevertheless, it provides for instruments to enact whenever a situation of necessity and urgency occurs. What is peculiar of the Italian experience is the misuse (or abuse) of the law decree, which has established a governmental legislation. A more recent practice has been to resort to emergency … „New Normality? – Abstract #10“ weiterlesen
