In jurisprudence, a target norm is understood to be a legal regulation with a programmatic character that describes the aim of further legislation and other state action. It does not grant any subjective rights , but contains a regulatory mandate to the legislature to issue further provisions that serve to achieve the goals. One example is the state target provisions of the German Basic Law or corresponding provisions in the EU treaty , for example on environmental protection ( (3) TEU).
