I am highly interested in your collaboration to address in my report perspectives from academia on a subject that has been of great concern to us, the independence of legal actors.
Mainly, my geographical area of interest would focus on LATAM, the Arab World and Africa.
My focus topics would be around:
- The legal education system and lifelong learning committed to root and ensure the independence of legal actors, both members of the judiciary and lawyers, and other practitioners involved in ensuring human rights values and UN principles.
- Social identity constructs that influence the cognition and conduct of legal actors, such as othering, demonisation, exclusion, prototypes, mainly those referring to colonial-postcolonial prejudices, prejudicial bias against native communities, national imaginary and prejudicial memory, or even religious constructs. On this point you can refer to my last article (in Spanish) on othering in postcolonial narrative, as well as many other conferences that you can find in my RG profile.
I’d be concentrated on these specific topics as I believe in the role of academia in cultivating, conducting and rooting critical education and perspectives toward ordinary people’s life by forming and empowering efficient legal practitioners to bridge and ensure the UNHR principles.
Kindly refer to me if you would be interested in providing your notes, comments, critics, and article studies that I could include in my agenda and bridge it in this mission in case I’d be nominated.
Your contributions are highly appreciable to me, please refer to me directly, or through social media @SamerAlnasir, or by hashtagging #samer_UNHRC44/8
