The Transdisciplinary Research in Sustainability Legal Group (GTJUS) aims to develop critical knowledge in the environmental and legal disciplines. For this purpose, the group pursues several lines of research. It considers the contextualization of a transformative epistemological paradigm to be politically and scientifically essential to addressing local, regional, national and global environmental issues. In addition to addressing specific areas of knowledge in their research, the group’s researchers represent several scientific and legal fields, including constitutional civil law; constitutional environmental law; public law; employment law; human rights and the fundamental social and environmental aspects of the environmental and educational geopolitics of Latin American integration; hermeneutics and the constitution, ethics, society and new rights.
