DIAZ GARCIA, L. Iván. The Application of the Proportionality Principle so as to Judge on the Legality or Illegality of a Restriction to Fundamental Rights. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2011, n.36, pp. 167-206. ISSN 0718-6851. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512011000100005.
The norms and duties that, as steps in a stair, structure the examination of proportionality of fundamental rights restrictive measures, allow making correct legal decisions since they maximize the enjoyment of such rights within the possibilities granted by the justifications underlying such measures. Likewise, this analysis allows us to be aware that the proportionality test is a relatively simple, clear decision-making procedure, controllable from an intersubjectively stand point.
