Law and Society Meeting 2023: Exploring Discrimination and Inequalities in Unincorporated Territories
1 June 2023 @ 08:00 - 4 June 2023 @ 17:00 CEST
The Annual Meeting on Law and Society is scheduled to take place from June 1-4, 2023, at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The conference will be held in person and has historically drawn over 2,500 attendees from 60 countries across six continents.
The theme for the 2023 meeting is “Separate and Unequal”, inviting participants to reflect on the normalisation of discrimination and inequalities in unincorporated territories like Puerto Rico and to consider how this theme can offer insight into other relationships of power and the law. The conference will feature plenary sessions exploring how the doctrine of “separate and unequal” perpetuates asymmetric relationships of power and inequalities in societies that uphold democratic values.
We are pleased to announce that the South-South Network, a group of early career researchers supported by GRIP in a book project focused on inequality will be presenting their draft chapters at the conference. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from emerging scholars and connect with other professionals in the field.
