Boaventura de Sousa Santos, speaker at the 1st International Congress of Research in Education, has just published the work “Izquierdas del Mundo, ¡Uníos!”
De Sousa Santos is a doctor in Sociology of Law from Yale University and was a professor at the University of Coimbra for many years. He currently directs the Center for Social Studies and the Documentation Center April 25 of the University of Coimbra and works as a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the United States. In addition, he was one of the initiators of the World Social Forum.
This same month he has published the work “Izquierdas del Mundo, ¡Uníos!”, a book that emerges from the current political affairs in Portugal, Spain, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico. According to de Sousa Santos, it is necessary to defend human dignity and nature through the radicalization of a high intensity and necessarily postliberal democracy: revolutionize democracy and democratize the revolution.
