In the last three decades, the Brazilian constitutional experience has moved towards the adoption of a model of judicial supremacy, in which the Supreme Court has the prerogative to give the last word on the attribution of meaning to constitutional norms. With the rise of a government of judges, the Supreme Court began to directly interfere in the political decision-making of the Legislative and Executive Powers. This talk intends to expose the process of development of the superpowers of the Brazilian Supreme Court, the rise and fall of its democratic legitimacy and the reactions adopted by the Legislative Power in order to rebalance the relationship between the branches.
