Room: Grande Auditório
By setting up this panel discussion, we aim to address the practices through which individuals interact, at a smaller or bigger scale, in collective or single action, respecting, challenging or resisting the law, and relating to the multiple configurations in which law materializes itself, in everyday life. What are the relations between the legal and the political spheres of individual and collective life? What is and should be the role of law and in which stances law should be addressed and/or reconfigured? The aim of the law is interpreted by societies and institutional organizations in biased ways. Societies fight to establish new laws (as human rights legislation) as well to ensure the law’s enforcement. Thus, what are the relations and tensions between the ways through which individuals practice their interpersonal interactions and organize their practical every day solidarity and the Law?
