Synopsis This work corresponds, with some changes, to the report presented to the Law School of the University of Minho for the purpose of providing evidence of pedagogical aptitude and scientific capacity, discussed in December 2004.
For this report, we have chosen the issue of the linking of individuals to fundamental rights, since the precise terms in which these rights should apply in inter-agency relations is still the most controversial issue today. We sought to systematize this problem in order to arrive at a coherent response to what is considered to be the image of man and of the world that underlies the Portuguese legal order. The conclusion reached here is that there is a direct prima facie linkage in our legal system, that is, the impossibility of a direct link of absolute features, but nevertheless a direct link between individuals and fundamental rights.
