I - Presenting Humanities and Rights - Global Network

From an interdisciplinary perspective, Humanities and Rights -  Global Network aims at connecting scientists of Law and Humanities. The research group, and its invited authors, intends to critically investigate the conception and application of law from several interdisciplinary points of view, particularly in the area of Human Rights.

Humanities and Rights’ wants to open dialogues on various aspects of both the theoretical concepts of human rights, and their practical applicability as subjective rights in a wide range of national states and legal systems. Interdisciplinarity is highly esteemed and the network will welcome studies originating from the paradigms of History, Philosophy, Psychology, Economy and Sociology of Law, but also literature, theatre, poetry and art. Humanities and Rights - Global Network Journal fosters debate on various intersections of positive Law and the Humanities.

Three main lines of investigation have been delimited, each of them guided by a specialist team of scholars: (1) Gender, Human Rigths and Justice; (2) Globalization and Rule of Law; (3) Human Dignity and Criminal Systems; (4) Law and Literature; and (5) Legal Pluralism.

 

The main project of the group is to establish a multi university research network, guided by common and crossing lines of investigation.
