Constitutions are political artifacts whose content and possible effects reflect the shared and conflictive preferences of the actors, the way that the are able to solve their differences and the constraints they face in particular historical contexts.

The underlying problem behind the judicial review of the constitution may be regarded as sovereign in terms of changing the provisions of the constitution, and even its entire structure. The paper aims to analyze the Argentine constitutional framework and describe the evolution of the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court of Justice on the matter of unconstitutional amendments in the case study of Argentina.
