Legal Subjectivity, Popular/Community Justice and Human Rights in Latin America

A conference being held at CRASSH might be of interest to some readers of this blog:

This conference aims to promote interdisciplinary debate between scholars from Law, Anthropology, Political Science and related fields in order to probe new constellations of popular/community justice, human rights and local forms of legal subjectivity in Latin America. In particular, the conference seeks to generate critical analysis by investigating discourses on rights and justice as these are variously understood, adopted, resisted and (re)constructed through processes of communal justice (e.g. community tribunals, vigilantism) and by various agencies and legal subjects in the context of different social, political, and cultural settings (e.g. community leaders, NGOs, institutions).
Dates: 22 and 23 January. Cost: £40/20. See here for more details and online registration.
