Written Submissions by the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) to the Subcommittee of the Constitutional Assembly on Fundamental Rights

Categories: All DocumentsConstitutionDocuments

CPA thanks the chairperson and members of the subcommittee on fundamental rights for the opportunity to give oral submissions on 29th June 2016. In relation to the form and content of fundamental rights, their enforcement, and the concept of constitutionalism that should underpin the future constitution’s bill of rights, a number of ideas were put forward by us in a constructive spirit to encourage debate and reflection before final constitutional choices are made. However, the written recommendations made below represent CPA’s organisational viewpoint, which overrides any contrary suggestion made during the course of the lengthy and vigorous exchange of views during the oral hearing.
