Résumé

We are especially interested in manuscripts on social rights and democracy. Our intent is to prepare a set of discussions on how democracies promote social rights today, i.e., to what extent social movements, legal institutions, parliaments and executive power are able to find solutions to the challenges of democracies today? Have, for example, affirmative action, housing and health care programs, and even direct financial assistance to the poor actually reduced inequality? In addition, what are the most effective solutions for poverty? Are courts the best way to ensure social rights today? We are also interested in papers that address the costs of social programs. These are some of the possibilities, but many other questions may be brought to the table. We encourage submissions based on historical approaches carried out by jurists, political scientists, historians, sociologists, and other professionals in fields that have particular focus on legal problems.

Argument

Currently, we are especially interested in manuscripts on social rights and democracy. Our intent is to prepare a set of discussions on how democracies promote social rights today, i.e., to what extent social movements, legal institutions, parliaments and executive power are able to find solutions to the challenges of democracies today? Have, for example, affirmative action, housing and health care programs, and even direct financial assistance to the poor actually reduced inequality? In addition, what are the most effective solutions for poverty? Are courts the best way to ensure social rights today? We are also interested in papers that address the costs of social programs. These are some of the possibilities, but many other questions may be brought to the table. We encourage submissions based on historical approaches carried out by jurists, political scientists, historians, sociologists, and other professionals in fields that have particular focus on legal problems.  

About the journal

Welcome to Prim@ Facie, a non-profit journal of the Graduate Program in Law at the Universidade Federal da Paraíba (UFPB), located in Joao Pessoa, Paraiba, Brazil. The journal features the double-blind peer review process of analysis in which numerous referees from Brazil and other parts of the world are required to give their opinions. The final selection decision is made by a board of executive editors, who conduct desk reviews and invite referees to advise them once a paper has passed the first step of evaluation. The executive editors make the final decisions. Executive editors are mainly university lecturers working with graduate students as assistants. An Advisory Board, mostly composed of international experts, contributes to the high quality of the publication. Fellow members with appropriate qualifications are invited to collaborate in the project.
