NORGE 1814 AWARD
The Bicentenary of the Norwegian Constitution 2014
In 2014 it is 200 years since the Norwegian Constitution was signed at Eidsvoll. The Norwegian Constitution of 17th May 1814 holds a special place in Norwegian history. Not only was it the foundation for democratic development, it was also instrumental in providing Norway with status as an independent country.
The 112 men in the Constituent Assembly produced one of the most liberal constitutions in the world at the time. The Norwegian consitution was crafted around three principles: separation of powers, the safeguarding of civil rights and parliamentarianism.
