Human Dignity in San Marino
San Marino does not have a constitution in the classical sense, but it does have a Declaration of Citizens’ Rights and of the fundamental principles of the San Marinese legal order. Human Dignity is not mentioned explicitly in the constitutional order of San Marino, neither does the Constitutional Court often refer explicitly to human dignity. The concept of human dignity in San Marino is reflected in the constitutional order and in the human rights referred to in the San Marinese Declaration. Human Dignity must be understood as a general principle belonging to each person and on which other fundamental rights are based on. Furthermore, the Declaration of Citizen’s Rights and of the fundamental principles of the San Marinese legal order recognises the European Convention on Human Rights as an integral part of its own constitutional order.
