The RCSL-SDJ Lisbon Meeting 2018: “Law and Citizenship Beyond The States”
January 15, 2018
The conference will discuss, among other topics of sociology of law and justice, the contribution of law to the power of citizens, at a time of increasing competition between state law, once the main source of people’s rights, and multiple global and local normativities. Proposals due January 15.
The meeting is co-sponsored by the Sociology of Law and Justice Section of the Portuguese Sociological Association. It is organized by DINÂMIA’CET-IUL, a research unit of ISCTE-IUL , which gives the Local Organizing Committee its institutional framework and administrative support, in partnership with the following partner research units: CES (Coimbra), CICS.NOVA (Braga, Lisbon), CIES (ISCTE-IUL, Lisbon), and CRIA (Lisbon, Braga), as well as with the International Institute for the Sociology of Law (Oñati). On top of these academic partnerships, we pretend also to involve personalities and entities from outside the world of science, for this meeting to be itself, as far as possible, an experience of citizenry beyond the states.
It is the second initiative of RCSL during the year 2018, since the RCSL will also participate in the ISA World Congress in Toronto, 15-21 July 2018. Other recent RCSL meetings took place in Vienna, July 2016, within the framework of the 3rd ISA-Forum, and México City, June 2017, where RCSL was a sponsor of the International Meeting on Law and Society.
It is the third meeting of the recently created Sociology of Law and Justice Section of the Portuguese Sociological Association, which held their first meeting in January 2016 in Coimbra, and a second meeting in February 2017, in Braga.
The meeting will be bilingual English / Portuguese. Plenary sessions will be held in English. Sessions in other languages may be be authorized by the Organizing Committee.
