19 September 2022 - Invited by the President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Croatia, Dr Miroslav Šeparović, a six-member delegation of the German Federal Constitutional Court, headed by its President Prof Dr Stephan Harbarth, came today in a return working visit to Zagreb. The delegation included also Vice-President Prof Dr Doris König, Justice Monika Hermanns, Justice Prof Dr Gabriele Britz, Justice Dr Josef Christ and Justice Prof Dr Ines Härtel. In two separate working sessions the judges discussed, among other things, a role of national constitutional courts and the EU Court of Justice within the European multilevel cooperation of European courts (including the institute in Art 267 TFEU) and about a constitutional court as a mediator of social phenomena. The both sides found direct exchange of experience an important tool for strengthening the ties between the European constitutional courts, and agreed to continue the bilateral cooperation, established already in 1993, also in the years to come.
