Systems Theory Thinking

Convenors:
Adrienne Barnett
Sarah Sargent
Thomas Webb

This stream provides a forum for those with an interest in systems theory thinking and law to engage in a critical and lively conversation with a view to developing systems theory discourse in law. Papers from those interested in any of the variety of systems theories (for example, autopoiesis, complexity, and chaos theory), and similar approaches (for example, Actor Network Theory, other network theories), are welcomed. Proposals from both legal and non-legal scholars speaking in favour of, or against, the utility of systems theories to law are encouraged. There is no underlying theme, but panel proposals may be submitted, otherwise papers will be grouped as much as possible according to topic.

Please get in touch with the convenors if you have any queries.

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair Platform. They must be no longer than 300 words and should include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 18th January 2016.
