The introduction focusses on the sources of constitutional law. Subsequently, the course explores rights and freedoms. Here the emphasis lies on title II of the Constitution. Rights and freedoms guaranteed in the international treaties, particularly in the European Convention on Human Rights, are also dealt with. After an analysis of the basic characteristics of the institutional system, the institutions of the federal state and those of the federated entities (the communities and the regions) are examined. Practical exercises on rights and freedoms, the validity of public authority decisions and conflicts of competence are provided for..
