Abstract Submission Deadline: January 1, 2018
This conference, co-hosted by Humboldt University Faculty of Law, Walter de Gruyter GmbH, and the Law and Development Institute, commemorates the tenth anniversary of Law and Development Review (LDR), currently the only peer-reviewed academic journal in existence devoted to law and development studies. Law and development studies are at an important juncture. Although scholarship in law and development, which explores the relationship between law and social and economic progress, has evolved over the last four decades, this area of inquiry remains unfamiliar to many legal scholars, lawyers, and policy makers. Scholars have not yet been able to establish law and development as a robust and coherent academic field by developing a theory that systematically explains the interrelationship between law and development. This conference will explore possibilities for new breakthrough by examining current studies and considering new approaches.
