Call for Papers- NLUD-LDRN 6th General Conference at NLU delhi
About the Conference: The ever increasing interaction between global legal policy processes and institutions with the domestic ones have renewed the interest of governments, the legal community, policy makers and researchers to examine the role of law and possibilities of reform to meet the objectives of development challenges and inclusive growth. Research in the field of law and development, over about three quarters of a century, has unambiguously established that law plays an emphatic role in addressing the challenges related to economic development, growth and distributive equality in the countries of the Global South and elsewhere. Law and development research sits at the cross junction of disciplines as varied as economics, sociology, political science, cultural studies and many more, including law. Without doubt it is truly an interdisciplinary field of study.
The Law and DevelopmentResearch Network (LDRN)was set up to “enhance knowledge and understanding of the role of law, both domestic and international, in relation to development and governance, as perceived globally and locally, and is therefore concerned with the social functioning of legal systems primarily in the context of countries in the Global south”.
The National Law University, Delhi, as a leading law university of the Global South, is proud to host the NLUD-LDRN 6 th General Conference at the National Law University Delhi, India, between 19 – 21 August 2023.
The Conference will present a unique opportunity for scholars from South Asia to share their ideas regarding the development challenges of the region with scholars from other parts of the Global South and North. The Conference will further serve as an opportunity to forge academic and research partnerships among the participating scholars and institutions.
The 6th Conference of LDRN, hosted by the National Law University, Delhi, is taking place in the context of pull and pressure of globalisation and localisation. While globalisation produces homogenisation and sameness, localisation produces uniqueness and differentiation. The simultaneous but paradoxical processes of globalisation and localisation have created deep ambivalences in the trajectories of law, justice and development in the countries of the Global South. They are often unpredictable, contradictory, plural and heterogeneous. Therefore, the real challenge before the academia and researchers engaged with the various facets of law and development is how to address and achieve justice for the people. Some of these issues will be discussed during the Conference. The Conference will take place in the blended mode to enable broad based participation.
The deadline to submit individual abstracts is 7 March 2023. However, the last date of submission of abstract is now extended upto 31 March. Abstracts received after the submission deadline may be declined.
