The contemporary value of early legal modernity. Research on the current situation of the Law of peoples and Fundamental Rights in Vitoria and de las Casas

Juan Ignacio Arias Krause earned his Philosophy PhD degree in 2013 from the Pontifica Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile.

Between 2013 and 2014, he then developed his post-doctoral studies at the Institute of Argentine and American History at the Buenos Aires University, in Argentina. Since 2015, he has been a researcher at the Playa Ancha University, in Valparaiso, Chile.

He has dedicated a large part of his research to Hegel and the philosopher’s work on State and politics.

The research that will be carried out in the context of the MIAS research stay, is based on the conflictive character with which sovereignty is currently presented in the international arena and whenever it is related to fundamental rights. When moving in different levels of reality (political, legal, social and economic, among others) occurs in a relational manner, following an inversely proportional logic, that is, whenever phenomena associated with the sovereign logic of domination grows, other phenomena decrease, as it happens with fundamental rights.

Such conflicting character allows a rethinking of problems related to sovereignty, assuming founding proposals of international law, where state sovereignty emerges not as the ultimate foundation of relations between states, but as one more element (fundamental as it may be) to be found in clear consonance with fundamental rights. This research will be supported theoretically from the doctrine of International Law and the Rights of Man, developed by the Dominicans Francisco de Vitoria and Bartolomé de las Casas.
