GONZALEZ DOMINGUEZ, Pablo. The relationship between the doctrine of conventionality control and domestic law. Cuest. Const. [online]. 2018, n.38, pp.199-226. ISSN 1405-9193.

The doctrine of conventionality control is the source of international obligations for all the authorities of the States parties to the American Convention on Human Rights. Yet, this doctrine is closely connected with domestic law. This article explores that relationship, both from a descriptive and a normative perspective. The first part explains how the origin of conventionality control is connected with the phenomenon of the constitutionalization of International Human Rights Law in Latin-America, which has taken place during the last thirty years. The second part argues that our understanding of the operability of conventionality control should depend on several norms and principles of domestic legal systems. Consequently, the article proposes a version of conventionality control that recognizes the existence of legitimate spaces of constitutional self-determination regarding how this doctrine operates at the state level.
