Ana Rubio Castro, full university professor of the Philosophy of Law of the Universidad de Granada and former chief executive officer of the State School Council, will give a conference and a seminar at the Cultural Centre La Nau about the challenges of the genre perspective according to the legal and political science. The events are part of the activities of the Escola Europea de Pensament Lluís Vives.
The conference, titled ‘Haciendo real el principio de igualdad. Interpretación jurídica con perspectiva de género’, takes place on Thursday (25 May) at 18:30h in the Aula Magna of La Nau.
On Friday there will be a seminar titled ‘El valor de la utopía para el cambio social’ (Aulas Seminari, from 11:00 to 13:00h). The registration is free (http://www.escoladepensamentlluisvives.com/). Some of the issues that will be addressed during this two days are the following: what representation and participation political model requires parity democracy, what changes are in the personal basic categories at a legal level or how to eradicate the gender violence.
