The Delivery of Justice and Human Rights

Monday, 16 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC10 Participation, Organizational Democracy and Self-Management (host committee)

Language: French and English

The session is intended to receive abstract contributions with critical considerations about the delivery of Justice and the interaction of Human Rights Organizations with courts (official legal system).

Different sociologists have analyzed the activities of NGO’s, among whom Bourdieu, using his theory of judicial field. Most sociologists believe that the impact of the structure of civil society on judicial procedure and the delivery of justice has not changed over the years, and that the sovereignty of the political power is still preserved.

This session invites abstracts addressing this issue with a special focus on issues of human rights but also on work relations and industrial democracy.
