The literature on proportionality, both in Brazil and abroad, has grown dramatically in the last 20 years. However, to a great extent it still focuses on a few controversial points, such as the rationality of balancing, while several relevant aspects are either less analyzed than they should or simply ignored. This research intends to fill this gap and produce relevant knowledge for the international debate on the subject. (AU)
