JSI Seminar: Social Rights and Proportionality

JSI Seminar: Social Rights and Proportionality

In-person event

This seminar outlines a model of proportionality analysis for the adjudication of positive constitutional economic and social rights [hereinafter: social rights]. Three distinctions are the basis of this model: (i) the distinction between empirical and normative aspects of the adjudication of social rights; (ii) between the level and mode of fulfilment of those rights; and (iii) between the competence of political authorities and courts to determine the appropriate level and mode of satisfaction.
