Boaventura de Sousa Santos – Towards a socio-legal theory of indignation

Advanced seminar, in Portuguese. University of Coimbra School of Economics, 17.04.2012.

Boaventura de Sousa Santos analyses how struggles to extend democracy can be linked to law as a tool for social emancipation. This involves examining how emancipatory practices mobilise legality and institutional innovation beyond the limits imposed by the liberal state monopoly in the adjudication and creation of law.
