Liberal-Democratic Constitutionalism and Imposed Dignity

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Dignity - liberty - self-determination - constitutionalism - rights.

The Author maintains that human dignity, which is rightfully protected by constitutional and international law, cannot be sustained to the point of being in contrast with individual self-determination, as this would be inconsistent with the principles of liberal-democratic constitutionalism. Therefore, rules or measures that impose or prohibit any behaviour in the name of the individual's own dignity should be considered as illegitimate.
