My proposal explores three concrete institucional flaws that are key to unravel the current situation of desoriented democratic identities in contemporary constitutional systems -emphasis placed on Latin American polities-. In this regard, a cross-cutting insight can be borrow from comparative constitutional analysis. It basically provides that substantive and normartive demands of liberalism -particularly within the agenda of the so-called neo-constitutionalism-, are steadily undermining citizens' engagement toward majoritarian and participatory politics. For example, the (positive) impact of Courts activity dealing with International Human Rights Law, at random, has also brought about further (adverse) side effects within the domestic political institutions that could best portray collective modes of self-government and democratic responsibility.
