We are pleased to invite the submission of abstracts for the first Law, Social Justice and Global Development colloquium ‘An Interdisciplinary Dialogue on Social Justice,’ hosted by the Global Research Priority Programme on International Development at the University of Warwick on the 30th June 2014.
The Journal of Law, Social Justice & Global Development (LGD) was established in 2000 and has been the leading peer-reviewed and open-source publication of the Warwick School of Law. With its focus on International Development, Human Rights, Governance, Globalisation and Social Justice, the LGD Journal has been publishing excellent and peer reviewed research committed to critical and rigorous analysis in these areas.
We welcome submission of abstracts that reflect a central theme of the LGD Journal: social justice. We hope to facilitate creative and critical debates on this subject by organising the day around three themed sessions:
— Theories of Social Justice
— Relationships of Power (particularly focusing on gender), and
— Challenges of International Development.
Each plenary session will be chaired by expert discussants in the field, generating meaningful discussion on each theme and giving presenters an opportunity to receive thoughtful feedback in a collegial environment. We hope that the colloquium will enhance and extend interdisciplinary collaboration as well as facilitate networking among scholars and practitioners. Exceptional papers will be considered for publication in the LGD Journal.
We also welcome the submission of abstracts for posters by postgraduate students on topics relating to our three themes for presentation during the plenary sessions.
Confirmed discussants include Professor Abdul Paliwala, Professor Shirin Rai and Professor Yash Tandon.
