Call for Papers: Contextualizing Social Justice in Transnational & International Law

April 20, 2016 at 6:08 pm Leave a comment

The Transnational Law and Justice Network will hold a workshop, Contextualizing Social Justice in Transnational and International Law, August 8, 2016, at University of Windsor, Canada. The submission deadline for applications and abstracts is May 6, 2016.  The organizers seek submissions that engage in issues such as:

  • To what extent is the reach and content of the concept of social justice evolving as cross-border dimensions and experiences of “society” evolve?
  • How do political relations or institutional and legal practices of economic and social actors across borders influence ways in which the pursuit of social justice is expressed (e.g., conditions, processes, structures or outcomes defined in socio-economic or political terms)? What rights and duties of individuals, societies, or States give legal articulation to these qualities of social justice?
  • In what way(s) can a reconstructed social justice concept serve as an analytical or theoretical tool to assess the theory, rules and institutions of international economic and social law and transnational cooperation?
  • What legal rights and responsibilities relating to social justice are recognized in theory and practice in contemporary cross-border legal contexts (e.g. non- obstruction, facilitation, the precautionary principle)? How do they relate to States’ national effort or international cooperation, international organizations, or non-state actors like business, civil society groups, and local communities?
