Cristina Queiroz: Economic Constitution and Fundamental Rights

Economic Constitution and Fundamental Rights

Cristina Queiroz


The concept of “economic constitution” possesses an eminently political nature within the framework of a democracy “with a living social content.” It assertively addresses the interrelationship between the legal, economic, and political spheres, with the “subordination” and “complementation” of the concept of “economic constitution” in relation to the concept of “political constitution.”
Hence the essentially interdisciplinary perspective that guided the writing of the text, which necessarily involves a critical interpretation and understanding regarding the political and economic paradigms of the relationship between the constitution, legislation, power, and market order, in their articulation with democracy and fundamental rights. This encompasses the macroeconomic constitution of the European Union and the transposition of these concepts to the framework of the new global governance.
