Kosovo’s Constitutionalism and Some Notes on the Legitimacy of the Spanish Position

Ana M. Jara Gómez

Resumen

Este artículo se acerca a la última parte del itinerario seguido por Kosovo en la determinación final de su estatus, que será descrita con base en los documentos y actuaciones de las partes implicadas y en el papel jugado por la comunidad internacional. Estos aspectos son de la mayor relevancia para averiguar si existe la posibilidad de que una Constitución sea la norma suprema de un determinado sistema jurídico, dotando de validez a las normas que lo componen y a la vez se subordine a otro acto jurídico diferente. El artículo analiza el Plan Ahtisaari y la Constitución de Kosovo a la luz del concepto kelseniano de norma fundante básica. Se examinará también, en términos de legitimidad y eficacia, cuáles son las consecuencias de la revitalización de las viejas pulsiones nacionalistas en España, que están afectando directamente al presente de Kosovo.

Palabras clave

Kosovo; Constitución; Declaración de Independencia; norma fundante básica; Grundnorm; Plan Ahtisaari
