Congreso Carmona VIII “Mujer y Derechos Humanos”. El legado de Rosario Valpuesta diez años después

November 2, 2023 @ 8:00 am - November 4, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

The “Carmona Movement for the feminization of Private Law” was born in the city of Carmona, in 2009, thanks to the initiative and impulse of Rosario Valpuesta Fernández, Professor of Civil Law and first Rector of the University Pablo de Olavide, in Seville, together with other colleagues and friends, who, since then, have been promoting with enthusiasm and effort the inclusion of the gender perspective in the Law and, with it, the generation of a powerful critical mass that allows bringing together jurists committed to the defense of women’s rights. The first meeting was held on May 7, 8 and 9, 2009 (“Carmona I”), and has been followed by “Carmona II” (Las Palmas, 2010), “Carmona III” (Valladolid-Palencia, 2014), “Carmona IV” (Malaga, 2015), “Carmona V” (Santiago, 2017), “Carmona VI” (Bilbao, 2019) and “Carmona VII” (Palma de Mallorca, 2022). The primary objective pursued by the “Carmona Movement” is to propose a reconstruction of private law in which, without renouncing its own traits and characters, all visions of personal identity are introduced, which inevitably involves feminist values and the eradication of discrimination.

To continue this work, the Pablo de Olavide University of Seville and the Carmona Movement, together with other institutions, will host the “Carmona VIII” to be held on November 2, 3 and 4, 2023 in the city of Carmona. The Congress thus returns to the original locality that saw the birth of a Movement that today is transversal, collective and itinerant.

On this occasion the Congress will have as its central theme WOMEN AND HUMAN RIGHTS and it will be analyzed by prominent speakers, both in plenary lectures and round tables, the following thematic cores worthy of consideration in the current historical process we are living: 1. Current problems of human rights of women in an increasingly changing world. 2. Implications of human rights in private law. 3. Women and sustainable development objectives. Migrant women and human rights.

This year 2023 the Pablo de Olavide University of Seville has celebrated its 25th Anniversary; it is also the 10th year since the death of Professor Rosario Valpuesta. The Congress is also presented, therefore, as an important occasion for commemoration and reflection on “The legacy of Rosario Valpuesta ten years later”, at the same time that we plan to provide a space for the memory of her figure and her teaching.

During the conference, our researcher, dr Stefania Pia Perrino, will present her selected paper on Social freezing.
