The new reality regarding International Human Rights Law has brought profound changes in the classical concepts of state sovereignty and supremacy of the Constitution. A study on the relationship between the concepts of constitutional supremacy and conventionality control is carried out in the light of the case law of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. In particular, the concept of constitutional block, the problem of the hierarchy of international treaties on human rights, as well as the scope and effects of conventionality control are analyzed, seeking to determine the viability of its implementation in Uruguay.
