International Research Collaborative "Political Radicalisms, Extreme-Right, and Justice System"

Coordinators:  Rebecca Igreja (UnB), Talita Rampin (UnB), Karina Ansolabehere (UNAM/Mexico)


In July 2020, the Law & Society Association (LSA) approved a proposal of International Research Collaborative (IRC) on Political Radicalisms, Extreme-Right and Justice System, conceived by the researchers Rebecca Igreja (UnB), Talita Rampin (UnB), Camilo Negri (UnB), Karina Ansolabehere (UNAM/Mexico), Odile Hoffmann (IRD/France), Bryant Garth (UC Irvine Law/USA), Alexandra Poli (EHESS/France), José Roberto Xavier (UFRJ) e Gianmarco Loures (UnB).

As described on LSA's website, International Research Collaboratives (IRCs) are international and interdisciplinary collaborative groups of scholars from different backgrounds, experiences and training. IRCs are typically organized in conjunction with an international meeting, the next being Lisbon in 2022. IRCs have become a key component of the intellectual life of LSA, helping achieve its mission of becoming increasingly global. IRCs have been instrumental in fostering and strengthening international and interdisciplinary scholarly networks, in promoting valuable collaborative research with scientific rigor and relevance, and in creating opportunities to share and communicate research to audiences at LSA meetings and other academic conferences.

This IRC brings together a group of researchers from various countries that are dedicated to the study of social inequalities, political radicalisms, the rise of the extreme right-wing and justice systems. The proposition is to follow up on a broader research that aims to compare these ascending radicalisms and new extreme-rights’ characteristics and to understand the factors that contribute to the current worldwide phenomenon. Initially, it focuses on investigating how different theoretical and methodological approaches have dealt with the theme, with special emphasis on the concepts, categories and variables that are employed in these studies. In addition, in a dialogical and comparative effort, it aims to observe the phenomenon as a whole; that is, how it presents itself broadly in the global context and the common characteristics in several countries. Finally, it seeks to analyze the strategy for the dissemination of radical political ideas and propositions, especially through social networks, and the social, political and legal means of controlling it.
