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.
