We first carry out a qualitative analysis where we design a two-dimensional theoretical framework in order to systematise the various liberal debate positions, and make us able to study their justifications, internal tensions and engagements with other positions.

We finally discuss possible merits and flaws in the research field, as evidenced in and by the analysis. (Less)
