Usages, Conventions and Tradition in Hungarian Constitutional Thinking

The mainstream Hungarian constitutional scholarship denies the existence of customary law and conventions, and claims that practices and usages are only categories of political sciences.
The contribution aims to picture the evolvement of doctrine and case-law regarding constitutional conventions and to point out the weaknesses of the mainstream scholarship. It also aims to point out those elements of conventions and customary law which were observed contrary to the doctrinal view of the non-existence. As a conclusion, it aims to offer an explanation why conventions did not evolve as a constitutional category and to contest the mainstream doctrine.
