This article aims to realize a rational reconstruction of the use of the proportionality analy-sis in order to adjudicate social rights. It supports the thesis that a social right is violated when the omission of one several factual positive actions, which limits it, is dispropor-tionate in a broadly sense, i.e., that either it lacks suitability or unnecessary or it is dispro-portionate in a narrow sense.
