REFLECTIONS ABOUT THE JUDICIALIZATION OF THE POLICY BASED ON CASES FROM LATIN AMERICA

An analysis of the phenomenon of the judicialization of politics is proposed, addressing its different meanings, the association of the phenomenon with the judicial process and with the quality of democracy. To advance the possibilities of empirical observation, a typology of expressions of judicialization of politics is proposed, which is later contrasted with paradigmatic cases from Latin America, where this phenomenon has acquired a particularly serious dimension.
