Call for Articles: Law and Justice / Convocatórias de Artigos: Direito e Justiça





The Revista Temas Sociológicos, published by the Catholic University Silva Henríquez (Santiago, Chile) School of Sociology, invites the academic community to send articles for its 26th edition, whose dossier section will be dedicated to a reflection on “Law and Justice: Towards a Sociology of State Power.” This dossier invites you to send proposals that reflect on the Sociology of the State in general, and the Sociology of law and Sociology of justice in particular. For this reason, we look forward to receiving papers that address the following core issues: 


  • Sociology of law and Sociology of justice in Latin America, with special emphasis on the evolution of main agendas and social demands.
  • Sociology of the judiciary and Judicial Branch. And specifically, the profiles, formation, career paths, recruitment and selection of the key players that hold the highest institutional positions in the Judiciary, such as judges and magistrates.
  • Associative forms, the work of the judges, and the configuration of their new professional identities.
  • The impact of the judges’ social profiles and/or career paths in the promotion and implementation of justice reforms or codes that govern how they work.
  • The social factors that govern the specializations, internationalization, and/or professional achievements of the judges. 
  • The transformation of court practices and the innovation of the justice system through a sociological analysis of the contents of its rulings or decisions.
  • Sociology of the power of the State, the sociological dimension of its three Branches, and the relations between the Judicial Branch, the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch.
