16/01/2011 - 18/01/2011

Rio de Janeiro - 2nd Congress of the World Conference on Constitutional Justice on “Separation of Powers and Independence of Constitutional Courts and Equivalent Bodies”

The Congress allowed around 90 Courts worldwide to discuss problems in their relations with other state powers, especially pressure from the executive or the legislative but sometimes also from the media. The participating judges drew inspiration from their peers in other countries at a time when constitutional justice is endangered in a number of countries.
