Constitutional transformation in Hungary

The author analyses the history of the past few decades of Hungary and the consequences of the change of system from the point of view of constitutional law. He discusses the relationship between the civil society and the legal system and the theoretical background of the category of "law-based state", and then analyses the gaps of the law-based state in the legal system of state socialism (in contrast to summary judgements) and by widening them how did the old system gradually and necessarily grow into the political-legal democracy after the turn. Discussing the constitutional legal system after the turn, he states that it strengthens the state against society. He provides a short criticism of the contradiction of the government's law making activities.
