NIETO-NAVIA, Rafael. THE LEGAL VALUE OF THE RECOMENDATIONS OF HUMAN RIGHTS COMMITTEES AND THE CONSTITUTIONAL BLOCK. Int. Law: Rev. Colomb. Derecho Int. [online]. 2011, n.18, pp. 155-190. ISSN 1692-8156.
The intention of this article is to comment the Editorial of 16 International Law, Revista Colombiana de Derecho Internacional, Javeriana University, which proposes the idea that the "recommendations" made by some of the conventional organs of certain human rights treaties in which Colombia is a party State, should be considered by the Colombian Constitutional Court as a "minimum obligatory (or compulsory) standard" within the so-called "constitutional block". This article considers that this suggestion is wrong.
