Kelsen's reception in Australasia
Walter, Robert; Jabloner, Clemens and Zeleny, Klaus. Hans Kelsen anderswo : der Einfluss der Reinen Rechtslehre auf die Rechtstheorie in verschiedenen Ländern. Teil III = Hans Kelsen abroad, p.311-352
Reviews the reception of Hans Kelsen's Pure Theory of Law in Australasia, with particular reference to: Kelsen's dispute with Julius Stone over the "Grundnorm" concept; use (or misuse) of that concept in legal argument during the constitutional crisis in Fiji, 2000-2009; applicability of the "Grundnorm" concept to Australia; and the author's own work in facilitating access to, and departing from, the Pure Theory.
