Persons in charge: M. Isabel Garrido Gómez
   
Contemporary international society has a political structure which, despite its opacity, leads to the predominance of one ideological and cultural opinion behind which great financial interests that are not explicitly present in political discussions gather.  A power exists, but it is unclear who wields it, what their responsibilities are and the participation of individuals and civil society is not guaranteed. Human rights, despite occasionally being mentioned in discourse, have been included only from a rhetorical and incoherent perspective. Within this line of research, these questions will be studied with the aim of designing channels and structures which make it possible to fulfil these demands and convert globalisation into an instrument capable of facilitating the satisfaction of people’s rights.
