Abstract

The book - as the outcome of a research performed by the University of Florence and the United States Institute of Peace of Washington - explores the role of law in the process of democratic transition in South Africa. More specifically it emphasize how constitutional law may contribute to "civilize" apparently unreconcilable conflicts, a part from laying down the foundations of the new legal order and institutions.

Abstract

During the 13th Legislature of the Italian Republic the phenomenon of parliamentary mobility, that is of the passage of MPs and Senators from one political group to another, assumed significant dimensions in terms both of the number of representatives involved, and in terms of quality, in view of the creation of governments through the decisive contribution of deserter MPs, sometimes joined together in specially created groups. The aim of the work is to review the principles of political representation, retracing their genesis and their translation in the constitutional and legislative arena and in parliamentary regulations, testing the viability of the traditional reconstructions of the national representation of the parliamentarian.

Abstract

This volume represents the natural development of the theoretical conclusions which the author arrived at in a previous publication, devoted to the passage from the mandate prohibition to the party mandate. The analysis of the provisions present in the Spanish system as regards parties and Parliamentary groups, and in particular those aimed at countering the phenomenon of Parliamentary transfuguismo or switching, effectively confirms that it is possible to draw from the traditional principles on political representation meanings that better fit the peculiar role that the parties play within the current representative democracies, without undermining their foundations. Hence the necessity to define solutions of various kinds - constitutional, legislative, regulatory, conventional - designed to guarantee that the elected member respects the party mandate received from the voters.
