Abstract

NOGUEIRA ALCALA, Humberto. The use of Foreign law and International law by the Chilean Constitutional Court During 2006-2007. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2011, n.37, pp. 275-326. ISSN 0718-6851.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512011000200007.

On a double perspective on the use of Comparative law by constitutional judges in order to use extra-systemic or foreign elements in their argumentation, and on the constitutional doctrine that contemplates open constitutional systems and not self-centered ones, we will analyze whether the Chilean Constitutional Court uses the Constitutional Law and the Constitutional Jurisprudence of other Latin-American and European countries, as well as the International Conventional Law on Human Rights and the resolutions of their enforcement bodies. Likewise, we will analyze why during 2006-2007 the Constitutional Court used the Foreign and International Law.

Keywords : Constitutional Jurisdiction; Use of foreign Law by the Chilean Constitutional Court; Dialogue between jurisdictions.
