Abstract

JARAMILLO SIERRA, Isabel Cristina  and  BARRETO ROZO, Antonio. THE PROBLEM OF INFORMATION PROCESSING IN THE SELECTION OF TUTELAS BY THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT, WITH SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE ROLE OF INSISTENCES. colomb.int. [online]. 2010, n.72, pp.53-86. ISSN 0121-5612.

This paper, in contrast to mainstream judicial politics literature in the United States and Latin America, proposes an approach to study judicial behavior that takes into account the problem of information processing. From this perspective the authors provide an account of the process of agenda setting through the selection of tutelas by the Colombian Constitutional Court. The authors conclude that the processing of information concerning tutelas by the Court prevents learning by assigning the first reading and selection of cases to very young and inexperienced clerks, by failing to study systematically the results of different approaches to the issues and and by denying Justices and clerks access to information about other justices' and officials' opinions as well as on who will decide the case after it is chosen for review. The insistence mechanism partially corrects these defects.

Keywords : tutela review; tutela selection; insistence; agenda setting; Constitutional Court; Colombia.
