The implications of the state's duty to 'respect, protect, promote and fulfil the rights in the Bill of Rights', as required by section 7(2) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, is a relatively undeveloped area of our Bill of Rights jurisprudence. This duty played an important role in a much-publicised decision of the Constitutional Court in the year under review - Glenister v President of the Republic of South Africa and Others 2011 (3) SA 347 (CC).
