Abstract

This text introduces the monograph “Critical Theories and Social Injustice: Human Rights in Times of Weak Democracies and Neo-Capitalisms”. It presents a large part of the debates that took place at the workshop of the same name held at the Oñati Institute for the Sociology of Law in September 2020. The workshop originated from the work of the Seminar on Critical Theories organized by the Gregorio Peces-Barba Human Rights Institute of the Carlos III University of Madrid. It presents and contextualizes the 14 contributions included here, which aim to contribute to the collective construction of responses and approaches to social injustices from contemporary critical theories. All this is from the interdisciplinary and committed viewpoints of researchers in different parts of the world.
