Abstract

El presente ensayo tiene como finalidad principal exponer la tesis de la aplicación constitucional preferente del Derecho internacional respecto del Derecho interno, acudiendo a una interpretación metódica y sistemática de la Constitución española de 1978. Pero esta cualificación no es privativa del ordenamiento constitucional español. Sistemas como el alemán anterior a la reunificación, tanto de la República Federal como de la República Democrática, imponían la equivalencia del Derecho internacional general respecto a los ordenamientos internos y, en su caso, la prevalencia del Derecho internacional convencional. Es pertinente citar, aunque pertenezca a un conjunto jurídico distinto, el caso del common law inglés y con eso queremos señalar que la Constitución española no es un supuesto aislado y extraño entre espacios jurídicos homogéneos, sino que sigue una tradición común a casi todos los sistemas jurídicos actuales. The main purpose of this essay is to sustain the thesis of the priority application of international law over domestic law through a methodical and systematic interpretation of the Spanish Constitution of 1978. This qualification is not exclusive of the Spanish case. Constitutional systems such as that applicable in Germany before reunification, both in the Federal and in the Democratic Republic established the equivalence of general international law and domestic laws and, as the case may be, the prevalence of conventional international law. Although pertaining to a different legal system, mention should be made of English common law, so as to point that the Spanish Constitution is not an isolated and unusual case among homogeneous legal spaces, but follows a tradition common to almost all present legal systems.
