Die uneinheitliche Judikatur im verwaltungsgerichtlichen einstweiligen Rechtsschutz sorgt für zunehmende Verunsicherung und widerspricht dem Verfassungsgebot der Rechtssicherheit. Dies ist vor allem auf unzureichende normative Vorgaben für die Entscheidungsfindung zurückzuführen. Versuche der Rechtsprechung und Rechtswissenschaft, dieses Steuerungsdefizit durch Entwicklung verallgemeinerungsfähiger Kriterien und Leitsätze zu kompensieren, waren bislang nur partiell erfolgreich. Dies liegt vor allem daran, dass ihre dirigistische Kraft im Rahmen des gerichtlichen Entscheidungsprozesses nicht hinreichend geklärt ist.
Kay Windthorst will dem begegnen, indem er auf der foundation des Erkenntnis- und Steuerungspotenzials der Rechtsdogmatik ein Konzept für die Entscheidungsfindung entwirft. Grundlegend ist dabei die Unterscheidung zwischen Rechtsaussagesätzen der Rechtsdogmatik und durch sie legitimierten rechtlichen Leitsätzen. Sie ermöglicht eine Verifizierung des Inhalts dieser Leitsätze und grundsätzliche Aussagen über ihre Wirkkraft. Auf diese Weise können wesentliche Streitfragen des Eilrechtsschutzes, etwa die Voraussetzungen der Aussetzungsentscheidung, durch ein konsistentes homogenes Entscheidungsprogramm ausgeräumt werden. Der Ausgang der Rechtsschutzverfahren wird dadurch berechenbarer. Das dient der Rechtssicherheit. Zugleich wird anhand dieses Referenzgebietes deutlich, welchen Nutzen ein rechtstheoretisches Steuerungsmodell für die Klärung von Fragen der Rechtspraxis entfalten kann.

Dezember 2014 hervorgegangenen Beiträge dieses Bandes analysieren endogene Prozesse der derzeitigen, avancierten repräsentativ-demokratischen Staatsordnungen, wie sie auch in der Verfassungsrechtsprechung nach bundesdeutschem, ursprünglich österreichischem Vorbild und in Verhandlungen in Gesetzgebungsverfahren zum Tragen kommen. Anhand von Fallbeispielen werden partizipatorische und plebiszitäre Ergänzungen, präsidentielle bzw. semipräsidentielle Einschränkungen sowie die besondere Problematik des Parlamentarismus – im doppelten Sinn des Wortes als vom Parlament bestimmte Regierungsweise wie als parlamentarische Arbeit – in Mehrebenensystemen behandelt, auch am aufschlussreichen historischen Beispiel der Habsburgermonarchie vor 1918.
