9 to 12 September 2014
The organizing committee of the IX Brazilian Congress of the Latin American Network of Legal Anthropology (RELAJU) invites members of the Network, academics, activists involved in the defense of human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples, as well as all those who seek to promote diversity and pluralism in Latin America and the Caribbean, to participate in the ninth congress of the RELAJU, to be held in the Convention Center of the “Pousada dos Pyrenees” in the city of PIRENOPOLIS – Goiás, Brazil, between 9 and 12 September 2014.
Central to this congress is a critical examination of the effectiveness of the fundamental rights recognized in the constitutional reforms that took place in the late twentieth century and early twenty-first century in Latin America, particularly those seeking to advance ethnic diversity and political, economic, cultural and legal pluralism, as well as counter-hegemonic and anti-liberal ways of life.
A pre-congress course will take place on 8 and 9 September 2014 on the topic ‘Constitutionalism and territoriality from a comparative perspective in Latin America’.
