Lisbon Global Law and Society Meeting 2022
Another Global Meeting on Law and Society will take place in Lisbon, at Iscte, from July 13 to 16, 2022, bringing together around 4500 participants, of which more than 3400 will attend. This scientific meeting is organized by the North American Law and Society Association, in partnership with academic associations from around the world, namely the Research Committee on Sociology of Law of the International Sociological Association, under the theme Rage, Reckoning & Remedy.
The aim is to discuss the extreme inequalities that mark our time, and which the Covid-19 pandemic is aggravating, and the links between these inequalities and the predatory relationship that has been established between humanity and the environment. The role of law and rights will be questioned in relation to a social reality marked by imperialism, colonialism, and slavery. Law and rights in today’s societies will also be approached from different perspectives during the 710 face-to-face sessions and 250 virtual sessions scheduled. For the seventh time since 1991 – the year of the first Global Meeting on Law and Society held in Amsterdam shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall – the vitality of the global socio-legal community and its capacity to intervene in indispensable and unavoidable global debates will be appreciated in Lisbon.
