Exploring Legal Borderlands: Empirical and Interdisciplinary Approaches

Convenors:
Pedro Rubim Borges Fortes
Anneloes Hoff
Owain Johnstone

This panel invites papers that explore the uncertainties and interactivity of legal borderlands. Legal borderlands are defined as including, but not limited to: the division between the formal and informal, law and non-law, and jurisdictional boundaries. Recognizing that legal borders are often not clearly defined or static, we invite papers that examine social practices, which fall within the grey areas, as well as papers which trace the development of norms and concepts within or across legal borderlands, or which trace the movement of the borders themselves through social agency. In this panel we wish to showcase empirical and interdisciplinary methods of socio-legal research.

For informal discussions about proposed papers please contact the convenors
