Inaugurating a Dutch Napoleon? Conservative Criticism of the 1815 Constitution of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper

Samenvatting

Discussion of the lack of control on monarchical action within the 1815 Constitution of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. The royal dominance within the separation of powers is a classic when it comes to judicial review of administrative acts or the lack of ministerial responsibility. Yet, this paper examines the issue of parliamentary control on the most fundamental sovereign right, that to wage war. I proceed by starting from the predominant international framework that gave rise to William I's sovereignty. Then, I illustrate the different points of view between Northern and Southern members of the 1815 Constitutional Committee. Finally, I give an outlook on ulterior constitutional evolutions in North (1848) and South (1831).
