Call for Papers: The Plurality of Law and Development (Berlin, September 2019)
von Thomas Dollmaier (HU Berlin)
The Chair for Public Law and Comparative Law (Prof. Philipp Dann) at Humboldt University Berlin and the Law and Development Research Network (LDRN) have issued a Call for Papers for the Fourth Annual LDRN Conference. Abstracts can be submitted until 15 February 2019. The conference addresses the ‘Plurality of Law and Development’ and will take place at Humboldt University from 25-27 September 2019. It is open to participants from partner institutions as well as other interested academics and practitioners from within an outside of the law and development community, who are interested in global interdependences and the role of law in development.
The LDRN seeks to enhance the knowledge and understanding of the role of law, both domestic and international, in relation to development and governance on a global as well as local level. The network is therefore concerned with the social functioning of legal systems primarily in the context of countries in the Global South, providing space for both orthodox and critical perspectives.
Humboldt University and the Chair for Public Law and Comparative Law are among the founding members of the LDRN. This year’s conference in Berlin will thus also create fruitful synergies with the interdisciplinary and comparative research of the Law and Society Institute, which over the last years has fostered research on law and development at Humboldt University.
