The work presented in this book is interdisciplinary—legal, political and sociological—and was written based on a national opinion poll unprecedented in Argentina.
Its immediate objective is to ponder one of the most serious problems in the country—infringement of the laws and the Constitution—and to invite in-depth reflection and discussion to seek full enforcement of the constitutional and democratic rule of law.
Despite important differences, Argentina presents a problematic situation similar to the one observed in Mexico regarding the conflictive relations between law and society. This book focuses on analysing Argentine society’s attitudes, perceptions and values with regard to fundamental law and legality.
