Political truth and judicial trust

The relationship between “political truth and judicial trust“, address nowadays some legitimacy challenges. At a time when the perception of the legitimacy of political representation is questioned, in order to maintain the communication between State and society – necessary to social cohesion , the quest for a trustworthy consensus must readdress the issue of reshaping citizenship as a sense of belonging in a democratic and pluralist society and a way of revisiting the “social contract“ doctrines. If courts do not frame their activity in adequate methodological terms and adopt frequently “passivist“ approaches in sensitive issues. In this sense, the theory of constitutional and judicial reasoning is not confined to a discovery task of political and constitutional problems but rather requires an institutionalized legitimacy of management and control and has has nowadays to be set aside with new forms of assessment of policy law making and court adjucation.
