Использование органами конституционного контроля зарубежного опыта
This article is dedicated to comparative analysis of the use of foreign law by constitutional courts. The authors
explore various factors that motivate judges to refer to foreign legal sources, categorize the goals of citation, and
provide a theoretical framework for judicial comparativism drawing on the theories of constitutional interpretation.
The main findings of this analysis help to understand the Russian Constitutional Court’s emerging practice of explicit
use of comparative arguments.
