Конституция 1924 года: как и где были заложены причины крушения СССР? Часть 2
On the basis of cognitive jurisprudence methodology the author reconstructs the main features of Soviet pseudo-federalism as represented in the Constitution of 1924. He analyzes key aspects of this original system including the theoretical grounds of the integration project, the legal structure and institutional dynamic of bicameralism, conflicting constitutional strategies, the construction of legislative, executive and judicial branches of power in terms of their creation, the role in the USSR’s collapse, as well as their impact on post-Soviet constitutional development. One of the important conclusions of this article is that rethinking the Soviet constitutional experiment could be very instructive in avoiding misinterpretations and errors in full-scaled federalism-building in the future.
