Abstract

Cepeda Espinosa reflects on how the social sciences, especially the theories of Philip Selznick on responsive law, influenced his approach to constitution making and institutional design, when he worked as presidential advisor to two Colombian presidents, as well as to constitutional adjudication, when he was a justice of the Constitutional Court. He also discusses how responsive constitutionalism has had a transformative impact in Colombia on the role of judges, the development of innovative legal notions, the design and implementation of public policies, and society at large.
