OSLS 5 (1) Indignation, Socio-economic Inequality and the Role of Law (January - March)

Issue edited by Jane Matthews Glenn (McGill University), Anneke Smit (University of Windsor) and Véronique Fortin (University of California, Irvine).

This issue takes its theme from Stéphane Hessel’s cri de coeur, Indignez-vous! and the protest movements it inspired, which we saw as protests against the social inequality that necessarily follows from economic inequality and other power imbalances.
Because of the breadth of the workshop theme and the diversity of its participants – which included a critical mass of doctrinal legal scholars in the mix – participants were asked to choose topics which 1) raised their indignation, 2) reflected economic inequality, 3) led to a violation of socio-economic rights, and 4) involved a possible role for the law (or public policy) either in causing the violation or in providing a solution to it (or both). The papers in this volume show that the participants responded enthusiastically to this request.

Drogas, legislaciones y alternativas

Drogas, legislaciones y alternativas: de los discursos de las sentencias sobre el tráfico ilegal de drogas a la necesidad de políticas diferentes [+download pdf]
Xabier Arana

La obra de Xabier Arana que se presenta es un buen exponente del tiempo en el proceso de avanzar en profundidad en la solución de los «problemas sociales». Presentada como Tesis Doctoral en el año 2011 en la Facultad de Derecho de la UPV/EHU como «Tesis europea», mereció la calificación de «Sobresaliente ‘cum laude’» por unanimidad y, sin duda, que también recoge un importante cambio de las palabras para hablar de las problemáticas, ahora, de las drogas denominadas ilegales.
