Call for panels and papers has now closed
Thank you to everyone who has submitted an abstract. We are currently organising the programme. Paper presentations will be scheduled in multiple parallel streams organised around the following themes:
- Cultural justice: culture includes age, socio-economic status, gender, urban/rural, ethnicity and religion. Thus cultural justice includes fairness in relation to cultural and demographic information, barriers and challenges;
- Transitional justice: an approach to achieve justice in times of transition from conflict, colonisation and/or state repression, including the rights of victims, rights of Indigenous Peoples, promoting civic trust and strengthening the democratic rule of law; human rights abuses, violence, and truth commissions;
- Criminal justice: including sentencing, sexual violence, miscarriages of justice, prisons and prisoners;
- Gender justice: ending inequalities between women and men that are produced and reproduced in the family, the community, the market and state;
- Justice institutions, practice and practitioners: including alternative dispute resolution, therapeutic justice, problem solving courts, procedural justice, restorative justice, collaborative law, legal education, legal services/assistance, litigants, the judiciary, legal ethics, future of legal institutions, practice and practitioners.
- Environmental justice: specifically considering the development for legal standing and fair treatment of non-humans including trees, rivers, national parks and animals, and Indigenous (environmental) ancestors.
Presentations will take the format of:
- individual paper presentations
- panel presentations or roundtable discussions from a group of scholars
- author meets reader proposals (to discuss a recently published book)
The call for papers closed 21st July 2017.
