SEJ-135: Human Rights and Guarantees
The group was created in the 1990s and led by Nicolás López Calera, who was succeeded by Modesto Saavedra and then by Ana Rubio, the current director. The purpose of the group was to research how law is created, learned, theorised and applied, with the aim that these processes would guarantee human rights. The presupposition was that in modern democracies, this guarantee should form the basis of all legal activity.
Members of this research group have been involved in evaluating recent laws, training courses for judges and other legal and non-legal professionals in writing draft legal rulings, and in providing advice for public institutions and businesses.
