Judicial Activism in a Violent Context: The Origin, Role, and Impact of the Colombian Constitutional Court

Publication Title

Washington University Global Studies Law Review

I will also provide a general overview of its role within the Colombian system-a comprehensive assessment that has not been fully carried out to date and that obviously requires much more space and time than is available for this specific presentation.
