ESTADO DEMOCRÁTICO Y SOCIAL DE DERECHO

Sergio GARCÍA RAMÍREZ

Is there a single model of a democratic and "social" state based on the rule of law? If not, which types are admissible without diluting the concept? These are the questions that the present article tries to answer. To do it, the author reflects not only on the Mexican constitutional expe-rience and its social content, but also on the characteristics that the concept of democracy has adopted under the Mexican circumstances. Finally, the author emphasizes the need of reviewing the role of the "so-cial" and democratic state, in the context of the process of globalization experienced today.
