The aim of the project was to examine the impact of small states on the separation of powers from a comparative perspective. Other small States besides Liechtenstein were included: Andorra, Iceland, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco and San Marino. On the one hand, the separation of powers theories were to be extended in terms of decision theory, and on the other hand, decision-making processes and structures were to be analyzed on the basis of case studies and measured against the norm of the separation of powers. Since the researcher took up a professorship at Andrássy University in Budapest prematurely, the project could not be completed. Some papers were nevertheless published.
Project duration: 2002 to 2007
