Summary

The Constitutional Jurisprudence Observatory will be a forum for the dissemination and analysis of the most relevant decisions of the Constitutional Court. The decisions of other national courts with relevance in this context, particularly in the context of concrete supervision, of constitutional jurisdictions from other countries, as well as international jurisdictions related to the protection of fundamental rights in Portugal, may also be the subject of discussion and analysis.

Objectives

The main objective of the project is the creation of an online electronic platform where the most relevant decisions of the Constitutional Court can be disseminated. The platform, which may have the format of a blog, must be connected with social networks, allowing for very wide dissemination of news about the platform's decisions and content. The additional objectives of the project include the publication of small analyzes of the published rulings that allow a first approach for the general public and specialists regarding the issues addressed. It is also intended to contribute to an in-depth study of the procedural movement of the Constitutional Court, its more and less common types of decisions and the exercise of its powers in general, in matters of electoral litigation, control of party accounts and political campaigns, as well as income declarations from political office holders. The ultimate objective will be to develop the platform as an academic blog focusing on Portuguese, European and comparative constitutional law, with a format comparable to that of the Verfassungsblog website (https://verfassungsblog.de/).The main objective of the project is the creation of an online electronic platform where the most relevant decisions of the Constitutional Court can be disseminated.

Relevance

The scientific relevance of the project is related to the dissemination of the most relevant decisions of the Constitutional Court to the scientific community, allowing the formation of an initial analysis of the issues involved and contributing to the development of a body of critical commentary on the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court. There is an underrepresentation of critical reading and commentary on the Constitutional Court's jurisprudence that could be combatted in this way, especially through the possibility of initial exploratory texts commenting on decisions. There is, therefore, an informative relevance of the project, but also a relevance for deepening scientific knowledge. The possibility of evolving the platform into a database capable of analysing the volume of Constitutional Court decisions relating to each of its categories will also have clear added value for an in-depth study of the Court's procedural movement.
