In this third installment of our new video interview series at I-CONnect, Carlos Bernal discusses Colombian constitutional law.
In the interview, we explore the new model of constitutional design evident in Colombia and other Latin American countries, as well as the role of the powerful Colombian Constitutional Court in enforcing socio-economic rights and policing the constitutionality of constitutional amendments.
Carlos Bernal is an Associate Professor at Macquarie Law School in Australia, where he teaches and writes about comparative constitutional law, jurisprudence and torts. His has published scholarly papers in several languages–including French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish–on the nature, structure and enforcement of constitutional rights, constitutional change, the philosophical underpinnings of tort law, and the connection between law and social ontology.
Fascinating insights into Colombia’s Constitutional Court. Would like to read more of Prof Bernal’s work but have had difficulty finding the journal called Letras Juridicas. Would it be possible to send a link?
Thank you/Muchas gracias!
David, I’ve asked Carlos to send you his paper from that journal, so please look for it in your email inbox.
