About The Constitution of Chile

This book provides a critical introduction to Chile's constitutional system, covering its key elements, including:
- an account of its historical origins;
- the structure of the different branches of government;
- the way the fundamental rights are recognised and guaranteed;
- the recent judicialisation of politics experienced by the country.

Furthermore, the volume addresses three crucial themes of Chile's constitutionalism that have received little scholarly attention. First, the early development of a constitutional state, toward the mid-nineteenth century, in a region then plagued with state-formation problems, civil war, and authoritarian regimes. Second, the irruption of a military dictatorship that lasted seventeen years (1973-1990) in a country that had achieved a decades-old constitutional democracy. And third, the persistent lack of legitimacy of the Constitution of 1980, after more than a quarter of a century during which it governed what was generally considered to be a successful transition to democracy, following the dictatorial regime of General Augusto Pinochet.
