Proportionality & Comparative Constitutional Law versus Studies

Rosalind Dixon
Published Online: 2018-11-29 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/lehr-2018-0012


The doctrine of proportionality has received sustained attention from comparative constitutional scholars. Yet it is an area where courts, and scholars, have made limited use of empirical or inter-disciplinary approaches to constitutional comparison. The article calls for a change in this practice as part of a broader call for greater dialogue between scholars and practitioners of conceptual and more empirical forms of constitutional comparison.

Keywords: constitutional law; comparative constitutional law; comparative constitutional studies; empirical comparison; proportionality; legitimacy; necessity; comparative practice
