A Comment on Alexy's Theory

by Teresa Sanader

The significance of constitutional rights as principles stems from their connection to the principle of proportionality. The connection is as close as it could possibly be. (...) The principle of proportionality with its three sub-principles of suitability, necessity, and proportionality in the narrower sense follows logically from the definition of principle." (Robert Alexy)
