The Law and Development Research Network (LDRN) is pleased to announce the opening of registration for this year’s LDRN PhD School – “Legal Values and the Functions of Law: Symbioses and Synergies” – which will be hosted by the International Institute of Social Studies in The Hague, The Netherlands, on 24 – 28 June 2019.
What does law seek to accomplish, and how is society affected by it? And from a researcher standpoint, how do I identify synergies between my research subject and those of others? The LDRN PhD school will seek to answer these and other questions, drawing insights on some of the methodological, ethical and theoretical considerations relevant for these aspects of the law and development research field, both in the global North and global South.
Besides coaching and discussion sessions dedicated to participants’ PhD projects, the confirmed programme includes a range of methodological and substantive sessions with expert instructors – including, from LDRN partner institutions: Prof. Karin Arts, Dr. Jeff Handmaker & Dr. Freek Schiphorst (ISS); Dr. Sanele Sibanda (University of the Witwatersrand); Dr. Celine Tan (Warwick University); Prof. Janine Ubink & Dr. Carolien Jacobs (Leiden University); & Prof. Koen De Feyter (University of Antwerp). A programme of social activities is also offered.
Further practical information and online registration is available here on the course website.
