THE PROBLEM OF CONSTITUTIONAL INSTABILITY IN EMERGING ECONOMIES: THE CASE OF BRAZIL

Marcos Augusto Maliska

Abstract


An investigation of issues of constitutional law often requires an interdisciplinary analysis. Constitutional law is also related to the economy, with constitutional stability depending on economic stability. Emerging economies face difficulties in remaining constitutionally stable. The Brazilian economic crisis generated a constitutional instability whose consequences are still unpredictable. The fragility of democracy in the country promotes the fragility of institutions and the Constitution itself. A purely normative discourse of the Constitution is insufficient, and it is necessary to rescue the politics and reorder the country politically.

Keywords
