Specific Objectives



Specific objectives:

  • the study of the theoretical construction of the rule of law (German doctrine of the Rechtsstaat, French conception and Kelsian theory);
  • deepening the institutional implications / consequences of the rule of law;
  • the deepening of the process that today makes the rule of law the antithesis of totalitarianism and the effects that derive from it (mainly, the revaluation of the law);
  • admitting legal liability as a foundation of social responsibility;
  • revealing some of the classic themes circumscribed to legal discourse / “transplantation” – as a process of transmitting legal knowledge, practices and institutions from one society or jurisdiction to another – topics such as:
  • the relationship between law and state authority ;
  • the relationship between law and society (including reflections on cultures, mentalities, morals, histories);
  • the relationship between law and politics (as a trigger and often decisive factor in legal change);
  • the relationship between law, language and culture (involving elements whose connection, often conflicting, determines the possibility or impossibility of cross-border communication, fragmentation of socio-linguistic and cultural identities, against the global background of multilingualism issues and in the context of increasing interpretation as a way of interrelationship and information)
  • research on the transfer of concepts from the social sciences to law – the impact on the political system, the legal system and the governance of the post-communist society;
  • clarifying the analysis grid of non-legal terms (when they are used by the normative system) and establishing the rules for reshaping the concepts taken from law, from other social sciences;
  • clarification of the methodology of legalization of concepts, having as main consequence the more adequate perception of the social reality described by the social sciences in order to legalize and, implicitly, to increase the degree of governability of society.
