  2. Mantener un equilibrio razonable en la red entre las instituciones asociadas pertenecientes al Sur y el Norte Globales (las instituciones que sean candidatas del Norte Global están invitadas a explicar sus vínculos con instituciones del Sur).
  3. Promover la representación de las instituciones de los países menos desarrollados.

A su vez, la misma deberá contener información general sobre la institución candidata, sus actividades de investigación en el campo del Derecho y el Desarrollo y al menos un miembro del personal que funcione como punto de contacto con la LDRN y garantice la participación de la institución.

La Red de Investigación sobre Derecho y Desarrollo (LDRN) pretende mejorar el conocimiento y la comprensión del rol del derecho, tanto nacional como internacional, en relación con el desarrollo y la gobernanza, tal y como se percibe a nivel global y local, por lo que se ocupa del funcionamiento social de los sistemas jurídicos principalmente en el contexto de los países del Sur Global. Los esfuerzos se encaminan a que la comunidad de la LDRN participe en debates fructíferos con diversas perspectivas, tanto ortodoxas como críticas. En definitiva, su función principal es comprender el rol del derecho en el desarrollo. 

New book: Beyond Law and Development – Resistance, Empowerment and Social Injustice (Sam Adelman & Abdul Paliwala, eds – Routledge 2022)

Beyond Law and Development – Resistance, Empowerment and Social Injustice (Sam Adelman & Abdul Paliwala, eds – Routledge 2022)

This book, which follows the 2021 volume “The Limits of Law and Development – Neoliberalism, Governance and Social Justice“, highlights new imaginaries required to transcend traditional approaches to law and development.

The authors – including researchers from LDRN partner institutions such as Cardiff Law and Global Justice, the University of Antwerp Law & Development Research Group, and the University of Warwick School of Law – focus on injustices and harms to people and the environment, and confront global injustices involving impoverishment, patriarchy, forced migration, global pandemics and intellectual rights in traditional medicine resulting from maldevelopment, bad governance and aftermaths of colonialism.

New imaginaries emphasise deconstruction of fashionable myths of law, development, human rights, governance and post-coloniality to focus on communal and feminist relationality, non-western legal systems, personal responsibility for justice and forms of resistance to injustices.

Beyond Law and Development – Resistance, Empowerment and Social Injustice will be available from Routledge as from 28 April 2022.

The editors of this volume, Dr. Sam Adelman and Prof. Abdul Paliwala, are respectively Reader and Emeritus Professor of Law at the University of Warwick (an LDRN partner institution). Sam Adelman is currently a member of the LDRN steering committee.

[Extended deadline: 15 September] Call for expressions of interest: new LDRN partner institutions

*Extended deadline: 15 September 2022*

The Law and Development Research Network (LDRN) – currently composed of over 200 individual members worldwide, as well as 17 academic partner institutions working on Law and Development in Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, India, the Netherlands, South Africa and the UK  – is seeking to extend its base of institutional partners to approximately 25, in order to support and strengthen its global reach and activities.

A partner institution preferably has no less than three staff members who are involved in research on law and development, and commits to contributing to activities under the auspices of LDRN, e.g. the general conference or training events for early career researchers. (These activities may take place online, in hybrid format and/or in person, as the situation permits). A partner institution could be a center, an institute, a research group, a department or perhaps even a faculty with the relevant expertise in law and development.

Representatives of interested institutions are invited to submit an expression of interest (max. 2 pages) to editor [at] lawdev.org by 1 May 2022 (subject line: LDRN partnership – expression of interest).

The following criteria will be prioritized, and should be addressed in the expression of interest:

  • The institution’s commitment to contributing actively to LDRN’s activities (this could entail organizing a general conference or PhD school, but could also take other forms, e.g. supporting organization of these events remotely; taking up organizational roles as part of an LDRN secretariat; active participation of staff members and students in LDRN activities; affiliating workshops, seminars, and other activities to LDRN; etc…)
  • Maintaining an approximate balance between partner institutions from the Global South and North in the network (Global North candidate institutions are invited to elaborate on their links to the Global South)
  • Promoting representation of institutions in least-developed countries

The expression of interest should also contain general information about the candidate partner institution, its research activities in the field of law and development, and any staff member(s) who would serve as contact points with LDRN and ensure the institution’s participation.

After the closing date, the LDRN steering committee will consider the expressions of interest received, and propose a set of new partner institutions for endorsement by existing partners. Candidates will be informed of the outcome as soon as possible.

Any preliminary questions can be addressed to the Steering Committee via editor [at] lawdev.org

We look forward to hearing from you!

The Law and Development Research Network (LDRN) seeks to enhance knowledge and understanding of the role of law, both domestic and international, in relation to development and governance, as perceived globally and locally, and is therefore concerned with the social functioning of legal systems primarily in the context of countries in the Global South. It envisages that the LDRN community will engage in fruitful discussions from both orthodox and critical perspectives on the role of law in development.
