¿Convencionalismo(s) o Derechos Humanos críticos? Hacia una interpretación resistente de los procesos jurídicos

  • Asier Martínez de Bringas
Keywords: human rights, Grundnorm, power, knowledge, epistemology


The excuse that interrogates this writing is to venture - given the conditions imposed by globalization - if a critical hermeneutics of the law is possible, one that places human rights as the primary rule of the whole legal discourse, thus displacing them from their adjacent and instrumental condition. We are faced with the proposal to understand human rights as the fundamental moment of all legal epistemology and as a constituent condition of any provision, norm or constituted criterion. The Grundnorm has acquired its status as a fundamental and most hermeneutic promontory, empowered and instilled by a set of framework norms, primary and fundamental criteria of law, which would be identified with what we will call human rights. In order to do so, it will be necessary to listen, in particular, what we mean by rights, since this attempt at pre-normative identification leads us to be able to activate, in this way, a jurisdictional dynamism in the service of the most fractured and inconsistent dignities, solidity. This will provide elements to contain, divert and channel state violence, given the exacerbated taste of this agency for its use and management in monopolistic conditions without options for challenge, complaint or complaint.
