This paper has two purposes. The first is to explain the transformative and progressive role played by the Brazilian Supreme Court over the last thirty years of the Brazilian Constitution of 1988, and how the Court’s rulings may represent an important contribution to the construction of the Ius Constitutionale Commune en América Latina (ICCAL). The second purpose is to demonstrate that Brazil is currently facing a moment of political and economic crisis, which may endanger part of these achievements. In this new context, ICCAL may be a major tool for the protection of fundamental rights and democracy in the country, and I will explain how.
