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.

BOOK LAUNCH

THE LIMITS OF LAW AND DEVELOPMENT: NEOLIBERALISM, GOVERNANCE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE (Routledge), edited by Sam Adelman and Abdul Paliwala

WEDNESDAY, 3 MARCH 1-2.30 pm GMT

The book examines the well-established field of ‘law and development’ and asks whether the concept of development and discourses on law and development have outlived their usefulness.

The contributors ask whether instead of these amorphous and contested concepts we should focus upon social injustices such as patriarchy, impoverishment, human rights violations, the exploitation of indigenous peoples, and global heating? If we abandoned the idea of development, would we end up adopting another, equally problematic term to replace a concept which, for all its flaws, serves as a commonly understood shorthand? The contributors analyse the links between conventional academic approaches to law and development, neoliberal governance and activism through historical and contemporary case studies.

All the contributors to the book have studied, taught or had a close association with the University of Warwick Law School and most of them will be participating in the session. A number of contributors and discussants are also active in the Law & Development Research Network (LDRN).

Contributors: Sam Adelman, Upendra Baxi, Radha D’Souza, Julio Faundez, Tomaso Ferrando, Peter Fitzpatrick, Jennifer Lander, Abdul Paliwala, Sol Picciotto, Issa Shivji, William Twining

Chair: Christine Schwobel-Patel (Warwick Law School)

Discussants: Martha Gayoye (Warwick Law School) and Professor Koen de Feyter (University of Antwerp / Law and Development Research Network)

New issue paper: Rachel Hammonds, “Protecting the right to health through inclusive and resilient health care for all” (Office of the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, 2021)

LDRN member Dr. Rachel Hammonds, of the University of Antwerp Law & Development Research Group (an LDRN partner institution), recently authored the Issue Paper on Protecting the right to health through inclusive and resilient health care for all for the Office of the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights. The paper forms the basis for 12 recommendations by Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Dunja Mijatović to member states. The recommendations set out the various components required to deliver inclusive and resilient health care systems and underline the need for a broader social rights perspective taking into account the social determinants of health.
 
The paper is intended as a tool to help governments address the urgency of protecting the right to health in an environment where health inequalities have been growing and causing significant social, human and economic costs to individuals and societies. The COVID-19 pandemic has compounded this situation, exposing the weaknesses of health care systems strained by years of austerity, economic difficulties and neglect.
 
 

Call for submissions: Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice

Call for submissions: Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice

The series editors, John Harrington, Celine Tan and Wouter Vandenhole (from LDRN partner institutions Cardiff University, University of Warwick, and University of Antwerp respectively)  welcome submissions to the Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice book series.

This series explores the relationship between law, development and global justice. It provides a platform for critical engagement with and interdisciplinary perspectives on the role and impact of law, defined in its broadest and most pluralistic sense, on economic development and social and political organisation. The series seeks contributions animated by a concern with global, social and gender justice, broadly understood, and welcomes both theoretically and empirically informed approaches to these issues. The series particularly welcomes contributions focused on and originating from the global south. Proposals are sought across the wide range of substantive legal areas, such as international trade and investment law, intellectual property law, international development law, environmental law, human rights, gender and the law, constitutional law, health law, housing and land law, and strategic and public interest litigation. It also seeks innovative work on the pedagogy and methodologies of law and development.

The series aims to bring scholarship on and from the global south to the widest possible audience, and the publisher is committed to ensuring the widest possible access. In particular, books are included in two schemes which provide free or low-cost access to libraries in developing countries.

Please see the website of the Elgar Studies in Law, Development and Global Justice for further details.
