Abstract

LLANES SALAZAR, Rodrigo. Mobilizing emotions, abiding the law The performative dimension of defending of human rights. Alteridades [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.58, pp.99-112.  Epub Feb 12, 2021. ISSN 2448-850X.  https://doi.org/10.24275/uam/izt/dcsh/alteridades/2019v29n58/llanes.

The performative dimension of defending human rights is analyzed as a fundamental element of such prac-tices. The methodology consists of an anthropological literature review regarding human rights and an ethno-graphical study of an audience concerning indigenous rights before the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights. The main finding was that several performative expressions of the defense of human rights exist: the mob ­ ilizing of emotions, on behalf of the victims; the portrayal of professionalism, on behalf of the defendants; and the demonstration that the law, regardless of economic interests, is abided by the State.

Keywords : indigenous rights; defendants; State; performance; Inter-American Commission of Human Rights.
