This paper examines the events of the constitutionalization and the conventionalization of the law in Colombia. The text states that the country has been attending a process of high intensity constitutionalization which was forced through the Constitutional Court judgements at the beginning, but currently presents different dynamics in several fields of law. In the opposite side, it points out that the conventionalization of the law has been limited to the reception of rules and standards set by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, without fully exercising the conventionality control.
