WG Hart Workshop 2022 Announced: Law, Alternative Economies and Activism

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies is pleased to announce that the annual WG Hart Workshop will be held on 9th-10th June 2022. The intention is to host the event live at Charles Clore House, although contingency plans will be in place should it become necessary to remove to a remote event. 

The topic could not be more timely: Law, Alternative Economies and Activism. This year’s Workshop is dedicated to informed, cross-disciplinary thinking that sees the university as serving broader communities of thought, rights activism and critical/ creative endeavour. Four proposed streams will seek to capture the overarching theme of ‘no more business as usual’: Re-Working Law’s Political Economy; Alternative Politics, Alternative Norms; News from Everywhere; and The Point is to Change It. 

The 2022 Workshop organisers are Adam Gearey, Fiona Macmillan and Kojo Koram of Birkbeck, University of London, and Donatella Alessandrini of the University of Kent. The call for papers is now open with a deadline for proposals of 31st January 2022. Further details on the call for papers can be found at: https://ials.sas.ac.uk/events/event/25197
