Resumen

Este articulo analiza críticamente las premisas y argumentos del proyecto Ius Constitutionale Commune en América Latina que perfilan a la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos como un agente de transformación democrática. El articulo plantea tres críticas en concreto: la imagen de la Corte es una construcción llevada a cabo por los abogados y jueces que adolece de problemas de autorreferencialidad y autovalidación; 2. En la medida que dicha construcción valida la idea de que los abogados y jueces son agentes de transformación, también descarta perspectivas que sitúan a los individuos como los sujetos que lideran la democratización de sus ámbitos locales; 3. el concepto de democracia representativa que fundamenta la imagen de la Corte como agente de transformación democrática es una herramienta de auto-validación de la labor de esta última.
