To further qualify the education of its academics, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the FMP has a striking research policy that intensively promotes both scientific initiation activities and institutional research. Focusing on guarding the implementation of unavailable rights, research at the FMP School of Law pursues the following fundamental principles:
► freedom of choice for objects of study, providing mechanisms to encourage interests that contribute to the strengthening of the thematic areas that the FMP School of Law prioritizes out of the affinity with our institutional lines of research;
► freedom of choice for methods that are capable of ordering and facilitating the development of scientific research as a result of the multidiversity of epistemological approaches, a condition for a fertile and creative academic environment;
► the use of knowledge from different areas of knowledge, in a multidisciplinary approach;
► the integration of research activities with extension and teaching activities;
► the integration of research activities developed by professors and students from undergraduate and postgraduate programs, lato sensu and stricto sensu;
► the promotion of institutional spaces for the academic community to present, debate, and publish their research;
► partnerships with other higher education institutions, aiming to implement interinstitutional research;
► the application of research results in programs that benefit the academic and non-academic community.
The line of research Tutelage to the Enforcement of Unconditional Public Rights deals with demands that involve the recognition of interests and rights of the community as a whole and, therefore, which are out of the reach and autonomy of the will of legal subjects, that is, beyond Individual Fundamental Rights. Emphasis is placed on the issues of public safety, preventive and curative policies to face corruption, Economic Order, sustainable environment, the necessary measures against market actions that violate Fundamental Rights, especially those related to new types of criminality and corporate illicit acts, which violently affect society and, in general, its most excluded and in need individuals, dispersed throughout the various Brazils within Brazil. The objects of investigative focus in this line of research also range from constitutional frameworks to the difference in the equality and freedom for all, verifying in what way the National Legal System must behave.
The line of research Tutelage to the Enforcement of Transindividual Rights deals with interests and rights that are situated between the public interest and the private interest, because although they are not exactly state-owned, they are more than merely individual, because they are shared by groups, classes, or categories of people. We are not exactly facing public interests, understood as those which have the State as their sole and exclusive guardian, since, frequently, the State itself appears as the cause of such injuries to rights. Neither private interests alienable are being addressed, because diffuse rights, in their diverse manifestations, are never the sum of individual rights; they indivisibly pertain to all and are most often marked by the characteristics of inalienability. At the theoretical and pragmatic level, this line of research will primarily address topics involving some of the most controversial transindividual legal assets, from a Fundamental Rights perspective.
