The INTRAlaw (INternational and TRAnsnational tendencies in LAW) Research Centre, Aarhus University, presents Law in Transition—Interacting Legal Orders and Changing Actors Sept. 28–29, 2017. Abstracts are due June 1, 2017.
The underlying idea of the conference is the fact that sovereign states are no longer the only actors in charge of establishing, implementing and enforcing legal norms. To an increasing extent, legal norms are established as a result of activities in international and supranational organizations, transnational corporations and through collaboration between public law and private law entities at national, supranational and international levels. The aim of the conference is to shed light on the impact of these new tendencies on legal regulatory mechanisms, on the role of the traditional legal actors, and on the subsequent challenges for legal research.
The three different conference sessions will focus on
- Different legal orders and their interaction (key note speaker Kaarlo Tuori)
- The changing role of legal actors (key note speakers Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen and Rosemary Rayfuse)
- Emerging approaches in legal research (key note speakers Reza Banakar and Hanne Pedersen)
