The Dignity in Law - Searching for a Definition


  • Cristina SAMBOAN

    (“Artifex” University of Bucharest)


Falling back upon the contact between dignity and law, this has taken place in 1948, at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Hence froward, the concept was to be taken in hand by almost every international convention regarding economic, social and cultural rights, along with civil and political rights, being assimilated – on legal or constitutional level- by a considerable part of the national european legislation, while making a clean career of what, during the ‚60’s, was to be known as ‚bioetica-dignity’, the key-concept of the regulatory documents regarding bioetics.
