This event is part of an ongoing lecture series organized by the Van Vollenhoven Institute, entitled “Reconsidering the Socio-Legal Gaze.” The lecture series aims to spark critical debates about the visions of justice and positions of power inform Law and Society scholarship at Leiden and beyond. The first semester’s series “Dutch Colonial Foundations” will reflect on the birth of socio-legal scholarship in the context of Dutch colonial administration.
The second semester focuses on “Future Horizons” of socio-legal scholarship in the context of three key values that drive contemporary scholarship: decolonization, diversity, and development. The year-long lecture series is being organized by the Van Vollenhoven Institute Diversity and Inclusion Committee, the first of its kind at Leiden Law School.
The series is open to the public. Attendees may join either virtually or in person.
