Juris North Group - upcoming events

1. IVR 2022 Bucharest Special Workshops (SW) [July 2022]

a) SW28 "The Fragmentation of Legal Theory as an Epistemic Community: Structures, Patterns, Trends."

The workshop aims to explore some key questions: "How is the global epistemic community of legal philosophers structured or patterned? How and why is the epistemic community of legal theorists unified/divided? What are the lines of division that generate exclusion/inclusion, centre/periphery?"

b) SW24 "The Veil of Ignorance, Crises and Emergencies"

Our workshop assumes all participants are rational beings aiming to apply the veil of ignorance and, therefore, invite submissions that explore (i) how a society disposes itself to respond to crises and emergencies or (ii) to its actual response to some particular crisis or emergency such as poverty, climate change, territorial disputes, terrorism and inequalities. We too welcome submissions that challenge our approach; i.e. whether such extension of Rawls is fruitful, legitimate or even Rawlsian.

These Special Workshops are part of the  World Congress of the International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy (IVR) 2022 in Bucharest, Romania. The IVR Congress will take place from 3-8 July 2022. The theme will be "Justice, Community and Freedom."
