 “The Rule of Law in Decline”

Present-day political thinking is apt to be utterly confused about the nature of the rule of law (Rechtsstaat), and the different purposes a democratic system ought to serve. What we call laws are actually rules which are arbitrarily set or adjusted in whatever fashion the ruling majority determines it necessary. This leads to a progressive decline of individual freedom.

We invite papers on this topic who meet the following requirements:

1: Entries may be submitted by individuals of up to 30 years (2011)
2: Entries may not exceed 12 pgs.; 1.5 space; full bibliography and summary included; left/right margins no less then 1 inch; a current CV must be attached
3: Entries must be submitted in electronic form (PDF) to ecaef@ecaef.li
4: Entries must be received on or before December 18, 2011.
5: It is expected that all prize winners will participate in the award ceremony.

Prizes are not transferable and will be awarded on the basis of originality, grasp of subject, and the logical consistence of the argument. Essays will be judged by an international jury and the winners will be invited to present their papers at a special event in Vaduz, the Principality of Liechtenstein on January 30, 2012.

First Prize: €4,000
Second Prize: €3,000
