The contributions published in this volume formed the basis of a lecture series organized by the Liechtenstein Institute from January to March 1994. Although most of the authors dealt with individual topics of the applicable Liechtenstein constitutional law of 1921, the outlines of a Liechtenstein constitutional doctrine emerge for that part of the Constitution that concerns the organization of the State. What is impressive - despite certain differences of legal opinion - is the high degree of consensus on central questions of Liechtenstein constitutional law. In the essay on the historical background of the constitutional discussion, the reader for the first time gains full knowledge of the contents of the so-called "Schlossabmachungen" of September 1920.
