  • Addressing Multicultural Conflicts: An emphasis on procedural fairness

    • Authors: Eva Brems
      Pages: 13 - 47
      Abstract: This paper examines the procedural fairness dimensions of approaches to multicultural conflicts. The paper explains the findings of procedural fairness research in social psychology and explores its relevance for the field of (human rights) law, and for the setting of multicultural conflicts. It argues that there are strong reasons in favour of seeking to optimize procedural fairness —with its criteria of participation, trustworthiness, neutrality and respect— across all types of procedures that address multicultural conflicts. The paper illustrates these criteria through three reallife cases, concerning multicultural conflicts that occurred in Belgium in recent years. The paper furthermore explores the relationship between the normative implications that may be drawn from empirical procedural fairness research and existing procedural fairness norms in human rights law.Received: 21 June 2017

  • The legal protection of traditional knowledge in the legal system of
           international and Ecuadorian intellectual property. Empowerment or
           regularization'

    • Authors: Stephanie León Calle
      Pages: 49 - 70
      Abstract: The framework of the debate on the rights of holders of traditional knowledge is polarized between the regulation established in the Agreement on the Commercial Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and the Convention on Biological Diversity, whose Ecuadorian counterpart is the Organic Code of Economy Social of the Knowledge that regulates the access, use and negotiation of the traditional knowledge of the ancestral peoples. It examines the effectiveness and coherence of this code with the right to selfdetermination through the analysis of three aspects: 1. The legal category «traditional knowledge associated with biodiversity» 2. The underlying economic paradigm 3. The locks that block the materialization of the prior consultation. The rights of traditional knowledge owners need to be placed in the context of the right to self determination because they are ambivalent, they can be instrumentalized politically as well as they could be placed at their service.Received: 30 June 2017

  • Solidarity Economy in Mexico: Towards an alternative based on
           intercooperation and mutual support

    • Authors: Mildred Daniela Berrelleza-Rendon, Cristina de la Cruz-Ayuso
      Pages: 71 - 93
      Abstract: This article analyses the situation of solidarity economy in Mexico. The work is structured in five sections in which the reality of these economic alternatives, which aspire to become effective tools to fight against poverty and exclusion, is examined from different analytical axes that provide knowledge about their different conceptual and practical approaches; on the legal framework that protects it in Mexico and the public resources assigned for its promotion, as well as the potential and limitations that the network of solidarity economy has in Mexico. This work concludes with a brief conclusion of the challenges it faces.Received: 30 July 2017

  • Indigenous territorial rights, legal pluralism and alternatives to
           development: notes on an indissoluble relationship

    • Authors: Yesica Álvarez
      Pages: 95 - 120
      Abstract: Indigenous territorial rights are analyzed in the present work as a demand inextricably linked to the defense of a way of life opposed to the conventional development model and to the maintenance of indigenous law, authorities and institutions. Starting from the opposition of many indigenous and tribal peoples to development and investment plans and projects, there is a need to jointly analyze the claims of indigenous peoples for their rights over their lands, territories and natural resources in the light of criticism of the conventional development enunciated from the post-development perspective and the studies on legal pluralism that questions the monism associated with the modern nation-state. To do this, it will be put under the lens of what we have called “legal pluralism in post-development key” the process of «indigenous emergency” and indigenous territorial rights recognized by the international system of United Nations and the Inter-American System of Human Rights.Received: 28 June 2017

  • Terrorism and political Human Rights infringement in the Basque Country:
           Basque students’ knowledge and ethical considerations from an
           exploratory analysis

    • Authors: Iker Usón González
      Pages: 121 - 148
      Abstract: The present research shows the main results obtained in a study, the first to the author’s knowledge, regarding students’ knowledge and perspectives concerning infringements of Human Rights due to political reasons in the Basque Country. A sample of almost 1000 students (18-29 years) recruited from the Social Science and Education Degree of three different universities (EHU/UPV, Deusto and Mondragon Unibertsitatea) took part in the study by completing a self-report questionnaire. Findings indicate that the interest of the participants on this topic is especially remarkable. However, students also show an unsatisfied feeling regarding the information they have received about the topic. In addition, students present a lack of awareness about specific facts that go hand in hand with human dignity and rejection of violence.Received: 30 June 2017

      Abstract: Aunque Perú es un país que se caracteriza más por la emigración de sus nacionales al extranjero que por la recepción de inmigrantes, últimamente se ha convertido en un país de tránsito de personas que van de un Estado fronterizo a otro. En esa ruta entre unos y otros de los cinco países con los que tiene frontera Perú: Ecuador, Colombia, Brasil, Bolivia y Chile, existe una importante población que se encuentra en ruta entre su lugar de origen hacia un lugar de destino. Personas provenientes de Haití y de Colombia, y más recientemente de Venezuela, aunque también de otras nacionalidades, se desplazan a través de Perú con el deseo de llegar a Brasil y Chile.Published online: 31 January 2018

      Abstract: El reconocimiento de la diversidad humana del cuerpo con deficiencias no solo es un desafío para las sociedades democráticas sino constituye especialmente un reto emergente para la implementación de diferentes acciones y políticas públicas inclusivas. Sin duda, si actualmente hay un tema en el ámbito de la investigación en derechos humanos y en el panorama iusfilosófico internacional que ha adquirido máxima relevancia, este es el fenómeno conocido como «discapacidad». Precisamente porque la diversidad funcional ha sido poco explorada y más si cabe su doble consideración como sujeto de derechos y de justicia.Published online: 31 January 2018

      Abstract: Cerraba esta reseña los últimos días del mes de septiembre con la mente puesta en el referéndum catalán del domingo 1 de octubre. Intentaba argumentar sobre la necesidad de cuestionar nuestro acomodo a la confusión y el nivel del debate público sobre la política. El desenlace de los acontecimientos me hizo recordar estas palabras que Kant escribió, con un optimismo conmovedor, en el siglo xviii: Si el género humano retrocediera y acelerase su caída hacia lo peor, no debe perderse la esperanza de que encuentre un punto de inflexión en su camino, donde nuestra especie vire de nuevo hacia lo mejor merced a la disposición moral depositada en ella.Published online: 31 January 2018
