Human Rights and Economics: Relationships and tensions between social and environmental rights and the transnational legal-economic order.

This project echoes the serious global social and environmental crises by addressing the collision between human rights and the economy, through a casuistic analysis of some of these crises. The main hypothesis is that the collision in question, reflected in such violations of social and environmental human rights at the global level, underlies a deeper crisis, a structural crisis of the model of sociality proposed since modernity. From a critical analysis of this current model, and from the ethical postulates of a sociality of hospitality, the research proposes to contribute to the gestation of a more fraternal and solidary law, articulable with a corresponding economic system, which will lay the foundations for an effective realization of human rights, especially those of social and environmental content.
