Abstract

FIGUEROA G, Rodolfo. AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IN THE JURISPRUDENCE OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT. Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2016, vol.43, n.2, pp.401-431. ISSN 0718-3437.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34372016000200003.

This paper analyzes to which extent affirmative action is compatible with the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court. 140 cases have been revised. No case where affirmative action was the core issue has been decided by the court. However, it has validated affirmative action in one of its decisions. There is not a single decision where the Constitutional Court had objected the constitutionality of affirmative action. Dissenting opinions of several justices have supported affirmative action in a variety of cases. The Constitutional Court´s doctrine on equality and non-discrimination is perfectly compatible with affirmative action.

Keywords : Affirmative Action; Jurisprudence; Constitutional Court.
