Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

“Dignity” is an indeterminate concept, which may assume several meanings. The indeterminacy – and the resulting broad discretion of the interpreter – is also enhanced by the increasingly frequent use of the concept in a subjective sense, ie according to the idea of dignity that each individual has, rather than in an objective sense, ie according to the common sense prevailing in a given historical and cultural context. The research aims to verify how the concept of “human dignity” is used in legal texts and especially in the case law, and if one can speak of a true subjective right of the individual to protection of his dignity, or of a constitutional value, which needs to be balanced (or not) with other constitutional values.
