Since the Second World War, dignity has increasingly been recognized as an important moral and legal value. Although important examples of dignity-based arguments can be found in western European and North American case law and legal theory, the dignity jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court of South Africa is widely considered to be the most sweeping in the world. This book brings together the first sixteen years of constitutional jurisprudence addressing
the meaning, role, and reach of dignity in the law of South Africa as a multiracial democracy.
