The Judicial Guarantees of Fundamental Rights in the Macau Legal System: A Parcours Under the Focus of Continuity and of Autonomy

  • Paulo Cardinal
Conference paper

Abstract

It seems that it might be useful to provide a short explanation of the contents of this paper, namely, on its title. In choosing this title and subtitle, we intend to present, at the outset, a justification of the title, as well as to identify the perspective of the approach that we are going to bring to this reflection on one of the fundamental rights themes – the judicial protection machinery of the fundamental rights. In truth, following the line of the title, it properly delimits the road that is going to be followed and assuming in itself, without misconceptions and without suspicions of any kind, the stressed points of analysis residing in the perspective of the transition of the exercise of sovereign powers over Macau. Particularly, the emphasis will be on the principle of continuity on the one hand, and on the other hand, on the principle of autonomy of Macau vis–à–vis the People’s Republic of China.
