    • Authors: Felipe Gómez Isa
      Abstract: Desde los primeros tiempos de su gestación, que se pueden situar setenta años atrás, el Sistema Interamericano de Derechos Humanos (SIDH) ha cumplido un papel fundamental en la paulatina consolidación de la democracia en América Latina. Y se puede decir, al mismo tiempo, que su gravitación positiva en las últimas décadas trasciende las fronteras de ese continente al funcionar como un ejemplo útil para sistemas análogos en otras regiones. Se trata de un edificio institucional, un marco normativo y una fuente jurisprudencial de notoria relevancia para la defensa global de los derechos humanos.Published online: 20 December 2019

    • Authors: Liliana Zambrano Quintero
      Abstract: “El Informe sobre la injusticia padecida por concejales que sufrieron violencia de persecución (1991-2011)” es un trabajo en el que se abordan los aspectos más relevantes sobre la realidad que tuvieron que vivir las personas que ejerciendo su responsabilidad de representación municipal se encontraron con la intimidación por parte de ETA. Concejales de diverso signo político vieron condicionada su cotidianidad por ejercer un derecho humano como el de la participación política. Esta situación no solamente afectó a su quehacer diario como representantes municipales, trascendió ese ámbito y tuvo una afectación directa en sus relaciones familiares, sociales y laborales. Esta realidad es la que recoge la publicación de José Ramón Intxaurbe Vitorica, Eloísa González Hidalgo y Gorka Urrutia Asua. Los tres, investigadores del Instituto de derechos humanos Pedro Arrupe de la Universidad de Deusto, desarrollan el encargo realizado por la Secretaría General de Derechos humanos, Convivencia y Cooperación del Gobierno Vasco en las 43 páginas del informe.Published online: 20 December 2019

  • The human security of the relatives of victims of enforced disappearance
           in Mexico

    • Authors: Alejandra Flores Martínez; Norma I. González Arratia
      Abstract: This research focuses on the analysis of the phenomenon of enforced disappearances within the theoretical framework of human security. From the epistemological premises of this study, it seems urgent to develop a security framework from and for the human being. And this is done here from the individuals immersed in their thoughts, emotions and in their socialcultural environment. For this, a qualitative research has been carried out with the aim of learning how the family faces the disappearance of one of its members through a semi-structured focal group interview and an open structured interview. The results reveal that each participant reacts differently in terms of emotions and behaviors, but most of them seek a support network to face adversity.Received: 26 November 2019

  • From the father as king to the child as king

    • Authors: Javier Elzo Imaz
      Abstract: In the summer of 2018 several research initiatives worldwide revealed the lacerating reality of the profusion of child abuse committed by the Catholic clergy, in most cases, decades before. Other contemporary research has shown that, among some reduced —but relevant— intellectual circles, the social interpretation of the child as a subject of rights is now very different from what it used to be. From the 1960s and 70s up to our days, there has been a clash between two different paradigms: One has been waning, which is the one focusing on the father; while the other has waxed, which is the one focused on the child. We have moved from the father as key figure to the child as key figure. This shift has also taken place in the patriarchal model of Catholicism, although, of course, it is not enough to explain the increasing cases of child abuse among the clergy.Received: 16 June 2019

  • Is it necessary to move into a new civilizational and human rights
           paradigm'

    • Authors: César Eder Alanís de la Vega
      Abstract: This paper explores the dynamics and the logic underlying the modern civilizational paradigm through the systemic analysis proposed by Wallerstein and how it shapes the Law. We argue that capitalism and the production and reproduction of human life and the Earth-System are incompatible, since the former requires the destruction of the latter. In this context, we wonder if, basing on the logic of capital, which also shapes human rights, it is possible to imagine a truly radical solution to the problem of the ecological and humanitarian crisis. The main goal here would be that we, as researchers and defenders of human rights, begin to rethink the hegemonic theories of law and to formulate creative praxis against the challenges posed by the capitalist system.Received: 04 August 2019

  • The relevance of trafficking data. Trafficking statistics of victims in
           Spain under review

    • Authors: Alba Villanueva Fernández; Fernando Fernández-Llebrez
      Abstract: Trafficking in Human Beings is a complex phenomenon, frequently biased by misconceptions about the definition and difficult to detect due to the underground nature of its activities. These circumstances obstruct the process of assesing the extent of the phenomenon in a country, affecting the decision-making process of anti-trafficking policies. The object of this article is to analyse the available data about trafficking in human beings in the case of Spain, including data provide by official sources and the dark figure approach. Following the analysis of the data the difficulties are exposed, regarding the content and the concept in the Spanish case. Conclusions present doubts about the existence of a data collection system of trafficking in human beings in Spain before 2015. Conclusions present/cast doubts about the very existence of a data collection system of trafficking in human beings in Spain until/before 2015.Received: 12 June 2019

  • Towards the adoption of a treaty on business and human rights: old
           debates, new opportunities

    • Authors: Daniel Iglesias Márquez
      Abstract: The progressive development of the international agenda on business and human rights generated the necessary conditions to establish an open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group by the United Nations Human Rights Council, whose task is the development of a legally binding instrument to regulate the activities of transnational corporations and other business enterprises in international human rights law. The progress of the round of negotiations between the different stakeholders allowed the publication of the Zero Draft of the treaty on business and human rights in July 2018 and the Revised Draft of the treaty in July 2019. This article makes a critical analysis of the advances and challenges of the treaty process and the key elements of the future instrument. It also reflects on the relevance of this instrument in contemporary international law.Received: 24 June 2019

  • Decolonizing Law and expanding Human Rights: Indigenous Conceptions and
           the Rights of Nature in Ecuador

    • Authors: Juan José Guzmán
      Abstract: This article critically addresses the crucial aspects for understanding the rights of nature as a resistance platform for indigenous peoples in Ecuador. By basing my arguments in a post-colonial approach to human rights and the concept of coloniality of power, I argue that the lack of inclusion of indigenous knowledge in human rights is a manifestation of neocolonialism. Thus, the introduction of non-Western narratives into the human rights discourse/practice is an attempt to decolonize what has traditionally been a colonialist discourse. Later on, I develop the concept of ‘rights of nature’ arguing that they are a practical example of the inclusion of indigenous narratives in human rights. In the end, the biggest problem is that the dominant Western thought does not challenge the human-nature relationships that are responsible for nature’s degradation. In this regard, I use ethnographic material, post-colonial anthropological theory, and symbolic ecology to argue that Amazonian indigenous nature ontologies —which understand the nature/culture relationship in a very different way— are contained in the rights of nature that the Ecuadorian Constitution enshrines. Therefore, becoming a legal tool with a significant potential for indigenous people’s historical justice.Received: 01 September 2019

  • Legal-political frameworks that promote Social and Solidarity Economy in
           Colombia and Mexico. A comparative cartography

    • Authors: Raquel Ortiz-Ledesma
      Abstract: This article analyses the relevance of the legal-political frameworks of Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) to social transformation. The article is divided into three sections where the international evolution of the legal-political frameworks and the different types of categorization of the legal framework for SSE support will be discussed. In addition, through documentary research and a comparison on legal frameworks and national public policies, the implementation of those frameworks in two States from The Americas, Colombia and Mexico, will be considered. This article concludes by highlighting the challenges of SSE and some possible route maps, as well as the relevance of this framework to social change.Received: 01 July 2019

  • Why Attacks on Civic Space Matter in Strasbourg: The European Convention
           on Human Rights, Civil Society and Civic Space

    • Authors: Antoine Buyse
      Abstract: This article explores the role of the European Convention on Human Rights in addressing the issue of attacks on civic space, but also the potential effects of shrinking civic space on Strasbourg’s work. First, an overview of the notions of civil society and civic space is given, linking these concepts to democracy and human rights. Subsequently, the formal and informal roles for civil society in the judicial decision-making are discussed. Finally, the substantive protection offered to civil society and civic space under the ECHR and the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights is analysed. This article argues that the differentiations in theory on the varying contributions of civil society to democracy and human rights are to a large extent reflected in Strasbourg jurisprudence. Even more importantly, the ECHR system and civil society benefit from each other. This is why the current attacks on civic space are not just a problem for civil society itself, but also for the work of the European Court: it is submitted that a shrinking of civic space can also negatively affect the Strasbourg system, as the two are intertwined to a considerable extent.Received: 06 July 2019

  • Transhumanism, Vulnerability and Human Dignity

    • Authors: Fernando H. Llano
      Abstract: The transhumanist movement is much more than a simple utopia, a new school of thought or a fashionable ideology; as a matter of fact, it is a scientific and philosophical project that is already underway, and defends the use of the most advanced emerging new technologies —from biogenetics to computing, from nanotechnology to cognitive sciences, to robotics and Artificial Intelligence— with the clear goal to exponentially increase the physical, cognitive, sensory, moral and emotional capabilities of human beings. Transhumanism entails a change in the anthropocentric paradigm defended by humanism, and aims to break through the limits of nature, which until recently we deemed insurmountable, in order to create a new species that is more evolved than the Homo sapiens: the Homo excelsior, a posthuman species which is superior to ours, composed by exceptionally gifted beings that have been genetically selected, designed and improved and which —according to the transhumanist imaginary— will dominate the posthuman future and will be happier, more virtuous, long-lived and intelligent than us. In this article, we propose technological humanism as an intermediate formula in the doctrinal debate between bioprogressive and bioconservative legal philosophers, so as to make possible the development of scientific research and the advancement of new technologies, although without ever having to sacrifice dignity and liberty, which are inherent qualities of the human being (who has to be viewed, in Kantian terms, as an end in itself).Received: 22 May 2019
