Official Visit of a Delegation of the German Federal Constitutional Court to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia
Upon the invitation of the President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia, Dr Jadranka Sovdat, a delegation from the German Federal Constitutional Court arrived for a three-day official visit to Slovenia on Monday, 18 June 2018. The delegation of the German Federal Constitutional Court is led by the Court's President Dr Andreas Voßkuhle.

During formal discussions, the judges of both Constitutional Courts will tackle constitutional law issues that they have faced in their work. They will discuss the distinction between interferences with human rights by means of authoritative acts and the mere outworking of human rights through regulation. They will further devote particular attention to the right to personal identity, particularly with regard to establishing or renouncing paternity and in connection with gender identity. They will continue their discussions with the exchange of experiences based on the case law of both Constitutional Courts.
