“The Unwritten Brazilian Constitution“ Book Debate
This panel intends to offer a roundtable discussion on the book launch: “The Unwritten Brazilian Constitution – Human Rights in the STF“ (Edited by BECAK, Rubens and LIMA, Jairo). This book presents an unexplored topic outside the Portuguese language: the leading cases on human rights in the Brazilian Supreme Court (Supremo Tribunal Federal – STF). The text presents a deep discussion regarding the characteristics of the cases and demonstrates how the STF has built the legal arguments to interpret the extension of the fundamental rights. In order to engage international academics on the topics of the book, the editors and some authors will present and debate the book content.
