The Fundamental Law or constitution of Hungary – whether it is chartal or historical -, just like in in every state in the world, is the supreme embodiment of statehood, – in legal sense – of sovereignty, the public authority, and within this framework, the main foundation, and the source of the law system. Nevertheless, the constitution appoints not only the shapes of internal public and private law system (internal sovereignty), but also embodies the selfdetermination of the state towards the world's other nations and international organizations, and regulates the internal legal aspects of the state’s participation in international relations (external sovereignty). In modern sense, one of the most important requirements imposed on the constitution is to open an appropriate window to the co-operation with other states. Since the end of the 2nd world war and the establishment of the United Nations, the international social and economic relations have been extremely expanded, strengthened, and transformed, and this process is still underway, shaping the national sovereignty significantly. On the one hand, this internationalization process was partly caused by the international legal sources, but on the other, as a consequence, they also underwent and still undergo a significant quantitative and qualitative expansion. Besides the international conventions and customary international law, the large quantity of international legal sources appear in new forms, such as the compulsory decisions and other legal acts of international organizations, international courts and arbitrational organizations, or the sources of the European Union and other supranational international organizations. This process of internationalization made a significant progress in the past twenty years, and also made its effects entirely on Hungary, but the application of these sources raised and still raise many fundamental constitutional questions. For the examination and clarification of these constitutional issues, the adoption of the new Fundamental Law is a good opportunity, but whether it meets the modern challenges, or not, and if so, then in what extent.
