RCSL-IISL Joint Congress

Since its foundation in 1989, the International Institute of the Sociology of Law in Onati has been a space for exchange between generations of scholars. At its 30th anniversary, the Research Committee for the Sociology of Law will celebrate its achievements of intergenerational exchange and collaboration and prepare for the future by linking generations for the advancement of our field.

The organisers will particularly promote and facilitate exchange and collaboration across generations of socio-legal scholars through panels and keynotes, and link generations from North and South for innovative research and theorizing.

The calls for sessions and for papers are open until 10 December. Learn more on the IISL's website.
