The last chapter collects and summarizes the main results of the book. It defends the doctrine of proportionality and the theory of balancing as very powerful instruments which can significantly improve rationality and objectivity of rights reasoning. Thus, on a more general level, the limitations of constitutionalism are identified to be farther away than they are sometimes considered.
