About the Authors
  • This is the first book on proportionality in Latin American constitutional law. Leading scholars in the region explore how proportionality analysis has become a key part of the constitutional law of a region where, almost paradoxically, constitutions with clear transformative intentions coexist with the highest indicators of social inequality in the world. In this book, scholars, practitioners and students will find a fascinating account of how proportionality has been a central concept in Latin America's constitutional struggles to curtail excessive uses of state power. The book illustrates how, more recently, proportionality has played an important role in national processes of constitutionalization and transitional justice, and how its current uses in the domain of social rights endow it with a distinctive meaning and role in regional constitutionalism. This pioneering book opens up the space for a much needed global conversation on how Latin America has decisively contributed to comparative constitutional law.

    • Presents theories and analysis of legal practice showing how proportionality is part of the Latin American regional project of using constitutional law and adjudication to confront power abuse and social inequality in a quest for social transformation
    • Provides an account of how key comparative law concepts, such as proportionality, evolve through different modalities of interaction and dialogue between the North and the South
    • Gives examples of how proportionality works under different Latin American constitutions and provides material for further comparative regional and worldwide assessments
