YEPES, Rodrigo Uprimny. Judicialization of politics in Colombia: cases, merits and risks.Traduzido porBarney Whiteoak. Sur [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1806-6445.

In Colombia, the judicialization of politics has assumed greater proportions than in many other Third World countries where judicial prominence has become mainstream. What can have prompted the development of this phenomenon? What is its impact on the democratization of Colombian society? What are the democratic merits and the risks of judicialization? Besides attempting to provide answers to these questions, I also propose to analyze the Colombian case, through illustrative examples and a theoretical discussion on the evolution of the phenomenon.

Palavras-chave : Judicialization of politics; Democracy; Rule of law; Judicial prominence; Constitutional justice; Independent Judiciary.
