After four years of study and research that supported his doctoral thesis, Professor and Judge Yarbas Bezerra will launch the book “A Cidadania como Ciência”, on Monday (19), from 7 pm, at the Livraria Nobel, in Praia Shopping, in Ponta Negra. The book deals with an issue of unprecedented relevance in the educational and legal field, proving that citizenship as a science arose as a result of a theory devised by the author himself.
For the judge, it is necessary to give due importance to citizenship, a subject already worn out and reduced to a minimum. His proposal, with the launch of this work, is to see him as a science, and to observe, in particular, how citizenship collaborates with the development of society. “Reading the work is of paramount importance to everyone who wants and fights for a more equal and just society,” Garbas said.
The thesis supporting the book was defended in February of this year in the Graduate Program in Education at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (PPGEd-UFRN). Based on extensive research, Jerbas Bezerra has devised an unprecedented theoretical approach called Global Legal Theory of Citizenship (TEJUC), in which the importance of citizen behavior for citizenship to be effective is emphasized. It is the first time that citizenship has been viewed as a legal science in the academic world.
Garbas’ research, which was considered by members of the doctoral committee, made up of Brazilian and foreign doctors, including Professor Paquita Sanvicen, of the University of Lleida Spain, was highly praised and recommended for submission to the Capes Prize for Dissertations. A very rare job.
