New publication – Semi-presidentialism and Tunisia

Sujit Choudhry & Richard Stacey at The Center for Constitutional Transitions at NYU Law and in conjunction with International IDEA have just published a really nice study of semi-presidentialism and Tunisia. It is available here.

The interest lies less in the Tunisian element. The paper is a study of the April draft of the proposed Tunisian constitution. As I understand it, there is now a new draft and there may well be another version soon. So, some elements of the study may have a short shelf life.

Instead, what is nice is the comparative aspect and, in particular, the details about presidential and other powers in semi-presidential countries more generally. In particular, there is a great comparative table at the end. The study looks 38 countries that are all unequivocally semi-presidential as defined by this blog. So, the paper generally and the comparisons in particular will be of great interest.

    Unfortunately, the link seems to be out of date. Perhaps the article can be found elsewhere?
