Conference on Sociolegal Studies in Indonesia

In November, the Faculty of Law of Brawijaya University is hosting the third Indonesian Sociolegal Conference.

On 8 November, there will be a socio-legal methods workshop for early career scholars.

On 10-11 November, there will be a conference on ‘Resilience In The Time Of Crisis: Justice, Access And Participation’. This conference is organised by leading Indonesian sociolegal scholars. It will feature the launch of the Association of Indonesian Socio-legal Studies.

The theme of the conference is as follows: The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of life. It is not only as a health crisis but also as a human rights and justice crisis. The needs of justice are increasing where domestic violence, family disputes, and labour disputes have been alarming cases all over the world. However, emergency and quick measures in response to the COVID-19 face new challenges and problems, as they may impact the fundamental rights of people, including the right to a fair trial. How has the court system changed during the pandemic? How and where do we reach out for assistance and help when domestic violence occurs while in lockdown? How has the government responded to ensure the protection of human rights of its citizen? The pandemic has created many justice challenges that need to be addressed.

This conference brings together socio-legal scholars to share ideas and build networks in order to support early career researchers and facilitate research collaborations.
