Britain and Norwegian constitution
What is it about?
This article evaluates the impact that Britain had on the Norwegian constitution through her part in the events of 1814 and the influence of her laws, thinking and traditions on the text of the document
Why is it important?
2014 marks the bicentenary of the Norwegian constitution. This article is a contribution to a better understanding of what 1814 involved. Previous research has emphasized the French and American revolutionary traditions, but this research has the benefit of focusing on a single country. The British role is apt to be forgotten because her constitution is unwritten and has influenced so many others.
