La muy discrecional doctrina del margen de apreciación nacional según el Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos: soberanía e integración

Francisco Javier García Roca


The established case-law of European Court of Human Rights on margin of national appretiation is one of the capital criteria for reviewing the decision made by national authorities after a superficial examination of the facts. Its application is very imprecise and discretionary, producing sometimes unpredictable, astonishing even contradictory effects. It corresponds more to the justice of case than a genuine general legal doctrine. Its current ground should be more in the considerable cultural pluralism of the peoples that take part of the Council of Europe than in the national (state) sovereignty, in view of the context of European integration, because the realities of the suppositions of fact should be integrated in the rights. But the Court itself and the scientific academic doctrine should make an effort in substituting this tool for other more accurate legal technique that may fulfil similar aims.
