Human Rights and Intercultural Dialogue (Droits de l’Homme et Dialogue Interculturel - DHDI)

Paris, France



The aim of the working group on Human Rights and Intercultural Dialogue (HRID / DHDI) is to create a forum for meeting, dialogue and research on issues related to Human Rights and Intercultural Dialogue. Its goal is also to broaden our perspective on Law via intercultural dialogue and a crossing of different approaches in the anthropology of Law and in the theory of Law.

The dynamic has its roots in research led over the last three decades within the Laboratory of Legal Anthropology of Paris (LAJP - Laboratoire d'Anthropologie Juridique de Paris), which, in spite of its vast diversity, is characterized by the LAJP's fundamental requirement to always relate the observed legal practices and discourses to the systems of thought and to the logics which underlie and generate them. The HRID seeks to bring together different streams of research by encouraging team work and by offering a setting in which these approaches can develop in a continuous working dynamics. Since 2004, collective research has mainly been focused on the question of Law, Governance and Sustainable Development in intercultural perspectives.
