SummaryIus Constitutionale Commune en América Latina stands for a regional approach in transformative constitutionalism. This project at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law aims at the change of political and social realities through the strengthening of human rights, democracy and rule of law. The main focus is on common problems, such as the exclusion of broad sections of the population and the frequently weak legal normativity. This research project reconstructs the main elements of this approach and addresses its specific Latin American character.
