Book launch: 'Struggles for the Human: Violent Legality and the Politics of Rights' by Lara Montesinos Coleman




In Struggles for the Human, Lara Montesinos Coleman blends ethnography, political philosophy, and critical theory to reorient debates on human rights through attention to understandings of legality, ethics, and humanity in anticapitalist and decolonial struggle. Drawing on her extensive involvement with grassroots social movements in Colombia, and through examining the practice of redefining human rights away from abstract universals and contextualizing them within concrete struggles for justice, Coleman reveals the transformative potential of human rights and invites readers to question and reshape dominant legal and ethical narratives. Professor Sumi Madhok (LSE) will act as discussant.


Registration will close two hours before the event begins.
