Ancillary Powers of Constitutional Courts
Institutions and Public Law: Comparative Perspectives (2004)

Abstract
This chapter surveys powers of constitutional courts beyond the exercise of judicial review. It argues that the assignment of such powers is largely a result of the success of constitutional courts in their core role. More ancillary powers, however, risks destabilizing constitutional courts as they are drawn into major political conflicts.
