OÑATI COMMUNITY TALKS/WEBINARS
In 2021, we started some highly successful online conversations about socio-economic inequality in the Global South, particularly in Latin America which took place between May and July this year. And continued in November with another one about socio legal implications of the Covid-19 pandemic in Africa.
The aim of the webinar series is to bring together alumni, faculty, and friends of the International Institute for the Sociology of Law (IISL) to discuss some of the most pressing and contemporary socio-legal problems of our time.
In 2022, we started a new line of webinars which consists on presenting the Doctoral Thesis of former master’s students of the IISL just before their official defence. We started on January 17 with a talk on "Socio-legal Perspectives on the Basque language, Education and Media" by Ihintza Palacin. She defended her PhD in February 2022 at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy).
In February, a new line of webinars started e about the INDIGENOUS PEOPLES.
The general webinar series have the hope to strengthen our Oñati Community bond, and come together to discuss, challenge, and rethink some of the global socio-legal challenges of our time.
