Chapter Summary

Like every constitution, the Autonomy Statute for (Trentino and) South Tyrol needs to be implemented and, where appropriate, formally amended. This chapter describes the implementation and the amendment procedures in detail, paying particular attention to the constitutional adjudication in this regard. Some consideration is given to the core of the autonomy as it emerges from the procedures on implementation and amendment of the Statute. This shows the complexity of the autonomy arrangement, on the one hand, and the real dimension of its guarantees, on the other. The provisions on enactment and on the amendment procedure of the Autonomy Statute, as well as their developments in political practice and constitutional adjudication, are, indeed, the most delicate and telling provisions from a legal and political perspective. They can be considered the norms on the norms. For this reason, they represent a litmus test for determining the core of the South Tyrolean autonomy.

Keywords: autonomy statute; constitutional adjudication; litmus test; South Tyrolean autonomy
