Mario Ricca, University of Parma, has published The Intercultural Use of Human Rights and Legal Chorology. Here is the abstract.
The essay deals with the contested universality of human rights from an intercultural point of view. Such a perspective conflates with the possible use of human rights discourse as a (horizontal) interface to translate different cultural subjectivities. Using this hermeneutical approach, spatial and semiotic proximities inherent to “multiculturality” are capable of showing and triggering renewed geographical and semiotic configurations. “Legal chorology” is the theoretical toolkit proposed here as a means of analyzing the emersion of new categorical and practical spaces of subjectivity.Download the essay from SSRN at the link.
