  • Cooperative Brexit: Giving back control over trade policy *
    • Authors: Streinz T; , .
      Pages: 271 - 290
      Abstract: We invited Thomas Streinz, Fellow at the Institute for International Law and Justice, NYU School of Law, to contribute a Guest Editorial to our Journal. Taking Joseph Weiler’s recent Editorial, “The Case for a Kinder, Gentler Brexit”, as its starting point, Mr Streinz argues that the principle of “sincere cooperation” requires the Union and a departing member state to pursue a “cooperative” approach to withdrawal, and applies that proposition to the contested area of trade policy in the context of the United Kingdom’s impending withdrawal from the Union.

  • Rethinking judicial empowerment: The new foundations of constitutional
    • Authors: Brinks DM; Blass A.
      Pages: 296 - 331
      Abstract: AbstractDespite growing attention to the causes and consequences of judicial empowerment and the judicialization of politics, there is no consensus on the concept or the measure of formal judicial power. We present an original and comprehensive conceptual framework that includes three dimensions. The first is ex ante autonomy, which is concerned with pluralism in the process of appointing justices, and with the ability of a single outside actor to control appointments. The second is ex post autonomy, which measures the extent to which a single actor can shape and manipulate the incentives of sitting justices. The last is the court’s scope of authority, which evaluates the court’s ability to intervene decisively on a broad range of politically relevant issues, on behalf of a broad range of actors. We argue that high and low levels of autonomy and authority interact to produce qualitatively different models of constitutional justice, reflecting differences in the goals of political actors to design courts as mechanisms of governance. We apply the framework in the context of formal institutional changes to courts in Latin America over thirty-five years. The results reveal several important insights not captured by purely additive or one-dimensional measures of judicial empowerment. We show that designers increasingly prefer tradeoffs among dimensions rather than across-the-board increases in formal autonomy and authority, and discuss the implications of these results.

  • The forgotten people in Brazilian constitutionalism: Revisiting behavior
           strategic analyses of regime transitions
    • Authors: Benvindo J.
      Pages: 332 - 357
      Abstract: AbstractStrategic behavior and game theory models of regime transitions have long dominated the constitutional and political science landscape. Even so, disagreements, controversies, and dilemmas over the causes and consequences of the process of democratization are the norm among those distinct theories, bringing about a great deal of inconsistency. Particularly intriguing, however, is the fact that, while normally focusing on the strategic behavior of political and economic elites, little attention has been given to the distinct groups of civil society which, through different means, have taken on a fundamental role during those transitions in building a new constitutional and democratic order. This article challenges those theories by diachronically revisiting the literature about the Brazilian Constituent Assembly of 1987/1988, a paradigmatic example of a constitutional moment marked by such conflicting interpretations. By bringing the “forgotten people” to the forefront, it concludes that perhaps those theories’ pessimistic stress on the behavior of the ruling elites might not be enough to cope with the un controllable power of popular masses and the paradoxical nature of constitutional democracy.

  • Democracy and regional human rights courts: An introduction
    • Authors: Follesdal A.
      Pages: 358 - 358
      Abstract: The regional human rights courts in Europe and the Americas have a complex relationship with democracy. On the one hand, they were established to protect democracy (and the fundamental rights on which democracy depends) and to serve as “alarm bells” to facilitate detection and early intervention if tyranny nevertheless threatened. On the other hand, however, specific procedures and practices of these courts, or certain forms of adjudicative activity, may threaten or undermine stable democratic self-governance. History has shown that the work of the European and Inter-American courts has, at times, both augmented and challenged democracy in their respective member jurisdictions. This symposium addresses certain aspects of this tension. It consists of articles first presented at a World Congress of the International Association for the Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy in Washington DC in 2015 at the initiative of Andreas Follesdal, Co-Director of PluriCourts—a Research Center at the University of Oslo committed to the study of the legitimacy of international courts.

  • Exporting the margin of appreciation: Lessons for the Inter-American Court
           of Human Rights
    • Authors: Follesdal A.
      Pages: 359 - 371
      Abstract: AbstractWhat might the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR) gain from a ‘judicial dialogue’ with the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in the form of borrowing the ECtHR’s margin of appreciation doctrine' Arguably, a favorable interpretation of the vague margin of appreciation doctrine allows the ECtHR to provide both human rights protection and deference to domestic democratic decision-making. This may guide the IACtHR’s attempt to respect both the American Convention on Human Rights and its sovereign creators. In particular, the ECtHR’s Doctrine may illustrate how these regional courts can interact with states that violate the respective conventions after less than fully democratic processes—in the eyes of the courts. The same margin of appreciation doctrine may justify more or less sovereignty-invading stances by both the IACtHR and by the ECtHR, depending on to the different levels of entrenchment of a democratic culture and rule of law in the state of concern, and depending on the actual deliberations carried out in the particular case.

  • New remedial responses in the practice of regional human rights courts:
           Purposes beyond compensation
    • Authors: Cornejo Chavez L.
      Pages: 372 - 392
      Abstract: AbstractIn theory, remedies ordered by regional human rights courts aim at the full reparation of the consequences of a human rights violation (restitutio in integrum). In spite of this premise, both the European and the Inter-American Courts of Human Rights have traditionally focused on the provision of pecuniary and non-pecuniary remedies for repairing actual damage directly caused by said violations. On the few occasions where the courts have been asked to grant remedies beyond a compensatory aim, they have refused to do so, declaring that these types of remedies do not fall within their competence. This article takes issue with these declarations and, through an analysis of selected case law, demonstrates that the practice of both regional courts has changed. They, each in their own way, have started to use remedial measures as an instrument that is not solely directed at compensation, but also at cessation, deterrence, and policy-making.

  • Subsidiarity, margin of appreciation and international adjudication within
           a cooperative conception of human rights
    • Authors: Vila M.
      Pages: 393 - 413
      Abstract: AbstractThe projected inclusion of the subsidiarity principle and the margin of appreciation doctrine in the preamble to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) is a legal turn that deserves special attention. Is it a welcomed reform which will enhance the Strasbourg Court’s often-questioned legitimacy vis-à-vis member states' Does it represent, as some non-governmental organizations have claimed, a setback for human rights in Europe' This article elaborates on these questions by first entering into the current debate on the nature of human rights. I suggest that a “cooperative” political understanding of these rights, which is based on claims of relational justice, is a suitable ground for a normative theory of international human rights adjudication. I then use this political conception to present a non-statist reading of the subsidiarity principle, which is in accord with an incrementalist approach to human rights requirements and with a rationalized version of the margin of appreciation doctrine. My holistic reading is consistent with the axiological aims of the ECHR system as a regional driver of human rights protection without damaging Strasbourg’s legitimacy.

  • The final word' Constitutional dialogue and the Inter-American Court
           of Human Rights
    • Authors: Contesse J.
      Pages: 414 - 435
      Abstract: AbstractIn this article, I discuss the ways in which the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR) may address cases adopting a novel approach to legal adjudication—one that relies on domestic notions of constitutional law carried out by domestic jurisdictions. Most scholarship on the inter-American human rights system assumes a top-down approach, whereby the Court dictates what countries must do. I offer an alternative, bottom-up, approach that could advance the Court’s legitimacy, especially in the face of criticism by countries, legal scholars and advocates for the Court’s decisions as an illegitimate intervention into domestic affairs. To this end, I examine the conventionality control doctrine, whereby domestic judges are expected to decide as if they were “inter-American human rights judges,” and I discuss two decisions that shed light on the IACtHR’s bottom-up model of constitutional dialogue with domestic jurisdictions.

  • From abusive constitutionalism to a multilayered understanding of
           constitutionalism: Lessons from Latin America
    • Authors: González-Jácome J.
      Pages: 447 - 468
      Abstract: AbstractThis article criticizes some of the implications of the recently coined notions of “abusive” and “authoritarian” constitutionalism. It argues that these terms assume that constitutions are merely higher law, and lose sight of the fact that they are also political documents that gain meaning due to the domestic and global power struggles. In light of this one-sided notion of constitutionalism, these terms generally imply that constitutions fail in places where amendment mechanisms are simply instruments for maintaining would-be autocrats in power. Reforms are thus necessary to limit amendment mechanisms. Focusing on the deployment of constituent power in Latin America during the 1990s—especially in Venezuela and Colombia—this article reacts against the fiction of “failed law” and uses the idea of constitutions-as-politics to show that amendment mechanisms in the region are related not only to the consolidation of power of authoritarian leaders, but also to domestic disputes around constitutional arrangements that limited democracy during the twentieth century and to the adoption of or resistance to new ideas about economic development in the transition from import substitution industrialization (ISI) to market-oriented reforms. The use of constituent power in Latin America has many faces and this article stresses the political debate, an issue largely forgotten by comparative constitutional scholars.

  • Birth and decay of the Chilean Constitutional Tribunal (1970–1973) The
           irony of a wrong electoral prediction
    • Authors: Verdugo S.
      Pages: 469 - 494
      Abstract: AbstractScholars debate about why constitution-makers create constitutional courts, and what the conditions are for making these tribunals politically relevant. This article examines how the understudied Chilean 1970–1973 Constitutional Tribunal has contributed to this discussion. That Tribunal was created in 1970, through an error made by constitution-amenders who believed that someone else was going to be elected president. Although the Tribunal generally benefited the unexpectedly elected president (Allende), it finally lost its relevance because of its refusal to alleviate a significant political conflict. Judicial review theories based on rights and political competition are not applicable to the Chilean case. The separation of powers theory, which claims that constitutional courts develop because of their function in solving inter-branch disputes, partly explains the creation of the Tribunal. However, the Chilean example suggests that that theory does not apply in highly controversial contexts.

  • Developments in Brazilian constitutional law: The year 2016 in review
    • Authors: Barroso L; Benvindo J, Osorio A.
      Pages: 495 - 505
      Abstract: AbstractBrazilian constitutional law was the subject of intense debate in 2016. Amid a political and economic crisis, the Brazilian Supreme Federal Court (STF) was called upon to intervene in several core political, economic, and social controversies. Taking the position as arbiter of national disputes, it was nonetheless thrust into the heart of the crisis. This report examines the developments in Brazilian Constitutional Law by focusing on the main controversies and major cases decided by the STF in 2016, such as the impeachment trial of President Dilma Rousseff, the enforcement of criminal sentences, the unconstitutionality of the incidence of the crime of abortion, health rights litigation, among others. It also looks into some of the STF’s longstanding flaws, such as its justices’ unbalanced powers and inability to deliver an “opinion of the Court.” As a court that has progressively gained strength and decided on matters of substantial political impact, moral disagreement, and social rights, for instance, it concludes that the comparative constitutional law field should pay more attention to the developments of the Brazilian Supreme Court.
