The influence of Kelsen in Colombia

Kelsen has been one of the main representatives of legal positivism. Within his theory of law, he analyzed issues such as the role of the constitutional court, the interpretation of judges, the character and hierarchy of the rules, among other aspects. The paper will analyze the influence that Kelsen's thinking had in Colombia, mainly in the analysis of the Constitutional Court rulings. However, the reception that Kelsen's thinking had on authors and its impact on the analysis of public law in Colombia will be taken into account.
