This book offers an application of the transrational model of interpretation of peace onto the area of legal studies. By building on the idea that there are various and many times contradictory interpretations of peace in history and culture, this book examines how these many forms of peace interplay in legal spheres, shaping legal discourses and practices, concretely those concerning the exercise of rights. By arguing that different perspectives on peace influence different argumentations of rights, the author challenges some of the political and legal discourses framed within the war against terror since 2001 and the resulting militarization of the Colombian society and its rights discourses.
