Sumario:This article brings together the central theses of the first and third chapters of the research titled: The assessment of weighting, solution to the collision of fundamental rights in a special case such as the writ for the protection of constitutional rights (acción de tutela) whose aim is to coherently and systematically present a conceptual approach to the use of the constitutional principles in the notion of a Constitutional State governed by Rights through the study of Robert Alexy’s theory of fundamental rights. To demonstrate that within the contemporary legal thoughts, the global debate on fundamental rights has been revalidated in both the philosophy of law and constitutional theory. In this context, fundamental rights are integral parts of the Constitutional State notion; understood as that scenario where the citizens’ subjective rights regain their central role in the society thus becoming instituted as a fundamental order within the legal system. The constitutional principles’ notion is closely linked to the idea of fundamental rights since the latter are expressed as legal norms of principles and given the fact that the legal system is no longer integrated by not only rules but also principles, these will mark a transcendental step regarding the conception of a State of Rights and a Constitutional State governed by Rights.
