Abstract

MARSHALL, Pablo  and  ROCHOW, Diego. THE SUFFRAGE OF PRISONERS. AN ANALYSIS FROM THE SUPREME COURT’S JUDGMENT ROL No 87743-16 AND ITS BACKGROUND. Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2018, vol.45, n.1, pp.233-254. ISSN 0718-3437.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34372018000100233.

This article analyses the Chilean Supreme Court’s judgment that ordered the adoption of all necessary measures to allow prisoners be able to exercise their right to vote. The antecedents of the judgment, the process, and the content of the judgment are exposed. Likewise, some reflections are presented that assess positively certain aspects of the Court’s decision that consolidates its concern for those deprived of their liberty.

Keywords : Prisoners; right to vote; equality; elections..
