Structure and Organisation of Government 2019 Conference “The Vulnerability of Trust”

The Structure and Organisation of Government 2019 Conference “The Vulnerability of Trust” will be carried out on June 17 – 18, 2019.

One of the key determinants for good governance is trust. Citizens need trustworthy public organisations for a wide range of issues, such as fair criminal justice and equal access to education. However, there is a global concern regarding the impartiality and reliability of public organisations, as they appear to be under a constant and increasing pressure because of, among other things, social inequality and democratic disenchantment. Institutional ineffectiveness, a failure to meet citizens’ demands, corruption, and the waste of public resources are also associated with a decline of trust in government.

Likewise, public organisations depend on citizens’ trust for their legitimacy and reputation, as well as for the voluntary social participation necessary for core public tasks such as taxation, law enforcement and regulatory compliance. Moreover, trust is also key for the relations between administration and politics – under pressure by political populism – and for the internal organisation of public entities. The vulnerability of trust in public institutions and organisations is a growing concern for the structure and organisation of government and for the provision of public services. This also gives a special rationale to hosting the SOG conference in Latin America, where concerns about low trust in government and its implications are a classic theme.

Deadline for applications: March 1, 2019.

Reimagining Contract in a World Of Global Value Chains

The call for papers is open for the workshop “Reimagining Contract in a World Of Global Value Chains” to be carried out on 9-10 May 2019, Sciences Po, Paris, France.

Global value chains (GVCs) have emerged as a dominant form of capitalism, producing conflicts that stand emblematically for struggles of distribution, participation and equality under globalization. As a mode of production, GVCs rely heavily on a legal infrastructure and the interests and ideals represented in it. As production shifts from integrated firms to outsourcing in dispersed networks, the institution of contract becomes key in the legal construction of GVCs, if not their very animating logic. Legal departments of lead firms and business practice draw on the openness of contract as a framework for multiple forms of social cooperation to establish complex cascading webs of contracts. Ensuring control throughout the value chain implies a new mode of usage for contract, beyond safeguarding and towards organizing cooperation.

Yet the exact role of contract remains obscure for practical and conceptual reasons: practically because contracting techniques are a closely guarded business secret and are barely litigated upon in public, and conceptually because paradigms of contract, as they are taught in law schools around the world, largely stem from the 19th century with few incremental developments since. In particular, from the perspective of privity the idea that contracts are foundational building blocks in multitiered, globally fragmented, and centrally governed networks of production can hardly be grasped.

What are the aggregate dynamics arising out of the interplay between numerous contracts and the underlying mechanisms of coordination and disruption? Despite inroads towards new understandings of contract under rubrics such as relational contracting and contract governance, the barrier of neo-classical privity remains so firmly ingrained in legal dogma that even these new approaches are reluctant to go beyond. And while the concept of privity was easily transnationalized, the various instruments serving to locally re-embed contract are lagging far behind.

In short, GVCs seem to command a novel direction of research on contracts, not taking individual doctrines or contract law as a broader field as a starting point, but rather the social institution of the value chain itself. Besides the immediate exchange relation between contracting parties that dominates liberal contract theories, third-party effects and the political economy of contracting become preeminent not only within the value chain itself but also on a broader, global societal and environmental level. Contracts have become a contested and fragmented arena of strategic corporate and civic engagement and activism.

What does this mean for contract law? No single contractual approach or theory is fully equipped to provide an analysis of the major implications. Rather, it seems about time to initiate a dialogue between competing or complementary contractual theories to explore their respective understanding of and contribution to GVCs. Through this, we hope to see more clearly along which lines contract law could recalibrate—by revisiting the first half of the 20th century when the general paradigms of contract and tort were being expanded to respond to the liability deficit of contractual distribution chains before these developments were restricted into their own little niche of product liability law, or by imagining something completely new?

And what will be the procedural parameters of new global litigation related to contract—do earlier focuses on tort and lex loci damni have a place in centrally-coordinated GVCs? How does the contract/tort interface structure recent cases of supply chain liability litigation? What implications does the move from corporate governance to governance through contract have not only for private international law but for local and transnational regulation? How do the hard law approaches of recent value chain due diligence regulation—from the US Dodd Frank Section 1502 to the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive, from the Californian Transparency in Supply Chains Act to the French loi sur le devoir de vigilance—translate into contractual practice? And, crucially, what does contract’s role as the building block of global value chains imply for public debate and pedagogy?

The table is open for a reimagining of the very foundations of the basic private law paradigm of contract, whether related to contract per se or the more general regulation of contractually structured entities of production. These re-imaginings could draw from recent theoretical or empirical approaches to value chain governance, private international law, or the political economy of contract dogma, to say nothing of revisiting the precursors of value chain litigation in earlier generations, such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and product liability law. Once again, it seems that we are about to break the bounds of privity—just this time around the effect on our understanding of contract may be even more radical than last.

Abstracts of c. 1 page is should be submitted by 28 February 2019.

Handbook of Heritage Law and Discourse ATriadic Dimension: Protection, Regulation and Identity

The call for papers is open for the edited volume “Handbook of Heritage Law and Discourse ATriadic Dimension: Protection, Regulation and Identity” by the editors Le Cheng & Anne Wagner.

The past fourdecades has witnessedthe remarkable extension of enthusiasm in cultural heritage or property from the perspective of international laws, or international legal framework as the multilevel legal instruments for safeguarding, protection and maintenance of cultural heritage, property, or rights. In our project, the identification of “Heritage” employs specific discourses, codes, transcending values, and images that conceal assumption about members of a people comprising a people within a nation. Heritage narrates constructions ofbelongings that become tethered to negotiations for power and resistance over time and throughout a people’s history leading to powerful discursive narratives. While such likeness may be preserved, conserved or even perpetuated, the idea of “Heritage” maybe socially, politically, culturally, and historically contested to reveal competing pasts, presents, and futures, esp. with innovation in arts leading to new social normsand identities.

Besides, the visual decoding of heritage is evocative and ideologically representative with meanings that prescribe a story of Protection, Regulation and Identity, since these meanings are subject to multiple interpretationsand reinterpretations related to Rights, among the integrity of heritage right and human rights, and the integrated framework of rightin remand right in personae. Yet, through semiotic accumulation, evolution and confrontation, there may be different interdisciplinary paths leading to different truths, to tensions (contestation and/or negotiation), and applications of significance. We should then investigate these transmitted values, discourses over time and space.

We should therefore investigate these transmitted values under various perspectives (amongst others but not limited):

  • How to transmit Heritageand which values are being transmitted?
  • How are the narratives created?-Is there a social stratification in transmitting, preserving and conserving Heritage?
  • What are the cognitive and symbolic aspects of Heritage through different temporal parameters? Is there a shift in cultural and/or collective meaning from one space to another?
  • What are the sources?
  • What is the relationship between law and “heritage” (tangible or intangible elements) in visual representations?
  • What is the shared collective and/or cultural memory beyond this visual representation?
  • How Heritage is connected to the preservation and conservation of a people’s memory?
  • How Heritage is interpreted within legalsettings or international legal frameworkfrom temporality and spatiality?
  • What are the interactions between cultural heritage and human rights within the diversity and tolerance within socio-legal contexts?

Considering the complexity and diversity in the building of a common memory or discourse community through tangible and intangible cultural heritage, we would suggest our contributors interrogate the complex sign system of a particular country or region and their meanings attentive to a complex configuration of historical, social and cultural conditions that shift over time and space.

Deadline for abstracts: February 28.

2ndDurban International Conference on Public Participation “Economic Marginalisation, Social Exclusion and Public Participation”

The 2ndDurban International Conference on Public Participation “Economic Marginalisation, Social Exclusion and Public Participation” will be held on the 17-18 June 2019.

In both the political north and the political south, with increasing global inequality, there is evidence of growing economic marginalisation and social exclusion, and growing disaffection with the formal structures ofgovernment. In South Africa, efforts have been undertaken to challenge the marginalisation and exclusion of the majority since the advent of democracy 24 years ago. These attempts include wider and more meaningful Public Participation. This is a constitutional imperative in South Africa thatis intended to draw communities into direct engagement with policy and decision-making. The process of putting this into practice has not been without its challenges and contradictions. However,Public Participation remains a key means available in representative democracies to address economic marginalisation andsocial exclusion and to facilitateconversations with citizens.

Given the contextualisation above, the 2ndDurbanInternational Conference on Public Participation (ICPP 2) will have the theme “Economic Marginalisation, Social Exclusion and Public Participation”. Its aims will be as follows:

  • To understand the nature of the challenge governments in ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ countries face in addressing economic marginalisation and social exclusion
  • To identify which groups in societies are marginalised and why
  • To analyse the potential ofPublic Participation asa vehicle for change
  • To identify what is needed for Public Participation to achieve this potential.

Deadline for applications is the 15th of February, 2019.

Dossier “Derecho, Ciudad y Propiedad” – Revista Derecho y Ciencias Sociales

Se encuentra la convocatoria del Dossier “Derecho, Ciudad y Propiedad” de la Revista Derecho y Ciencias Sociales, coordinado por Francisco Vértiz.

Se invita a presentar trabajos teóricos y empíricos dirigidos a reflexionar sobre la dimensión jurídica de los procesos urbanos.

La relación entre el Derecho y los problemas urbanos está fuertemente ligada a la urbanización capitalista. El proceso de formalización y codificación de las regulaciones técnicas sobre la producción y uso del espacio urbano, a través del dictado de normas jurídicas, está vinculado con los problemas sociales y espaciales que surgieron con el desarrollo de las ciudades industriales europeas en el siglo XIX, que dieron lugar al urbanismo moderno. Además de la preocupación por cómo intervenir frente a la nueva realidad urbana y promover un funcionamiento “racional” de la ciudad, dicho campo  permitió discutir posteriormente sobre el alcance del derecho de propiedad privada de los inmuebles urbanos y la capacidad del poder público para regular su contenido.

Otro eje de debate es el del derecho a la ciudad, concepto que ha permitido agrupar una serie de trabajos teóricos y empíricos dedicados a reflexionar sobre las posibilidades de construir otras maneras de producción y apropiación del espacio urbano. También está la línea de los conflictos de proximidad, que viene orientando una serie de investigaciones empíricas sobre la productividad social de los conflictos territoriales, donde la dimensión jurídica ocupa un lugar importante en el análisis. Por último, refiriéndonos al contexto latinoamericano, donde una superficie importante de las ciudades fue producida mediante procesos no planificados y en tensión con la normativa urbana, no podemos dejar de mencionar la presencia de la urbanización informal o popular en la agenda de los estudios urbanos.

Fecha límite de recepción: 1 de marzo de 2019.

Call for Research Proposals -“Digitalization and the Future of Work in the Global South”

As part of the Future of Work in the Global South (FoWiGS) initiative, Centro Latam Digital and IDRC are launching a call for research proposals that seeks to advance understanding about the implications of digitization and labor automation for countries in the Global South.

A number of technological and social forces are currently reshaping employment, and more generally the nature of work. Despite growing evidence about the impact of these forces in advanced economies, there is currently little understanding about how these transformations are affecting countries in the Global South. FoWiGS is launching a call for research proposals to fill this knowledge void and create high-quality, policy-relevant research about the implications of these changes for equitable development in emerging regions.

Apply until December 15, 2018.

International Conference “Sharing Society. The Impact of Collaborative Collective Actions in the Transformation of Contemporary Societies“

The International Conference “Sharing Society. The Impact of Collaborative Collective Actions in the Transformation of Contemporary Societies“ will be carried out in May 23-24, 2019.

1. Context and Rationale

Although the concept of collective action has been widely used in the field of social sciences, giving rise to the area of ​​social movements studies, little research has focused on the collaborative aspect of this action. In recent years, the emerging field of studies on the “sharing economy” has shed some long-overdue light on this aspect. However, some of the cases that have been described as part of this phenomenon, such as Uber or AirBnB, lack key collaborative traits in both their setup and praxis. So much so that scholars have called for the use of the term “true sharing economy” to distinguish the latter from more nuanced and complex experiences.

The concept of “sharing society” is inspired by the definition of collaborative collective action (Tejerina, 2016): “the group of practices and formal and informal interactions that take place among individuals, collectives or associations that share a sense of belonging or common interests, that collaborate and are in conflict with others, and that have the intent of producing or precluding social change through the mobilization of certain social sectors.”

This conference stems from the research project “Sharing Society. The Impact of Collaborative Collective Action. Analysis of the Effects of Practices, Bonds, Structures and Mobilizations in the Transformation of Contemporary Societies,” funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO CSO2016-78107-R), and hosted by the Collective Identity Research Center, University of the Basque Country (Spain).

2. Scope and Objectives

This international conference sets out to analyze the characteristics, trajectory and impact of collaborative collective actions in a context of erosion of the welfare state. It also seeks to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of collaborative collective actions. The conference will address the following questions:

  • How, when and where does collaborative collective action occur?
  • Which are the characteristics of contemporary collaborative collective action?
  • What are the practical, symbolic, and legal effects of collaborative collective actions for the forging and recovery of social bonds?
  • What forms of interaction emerge from these types of actions?

We invite theoretical and empirical proposals that explore collaborative collective actions in different areas: work, production, consumption, culture, art, science, knowledge and education, solidarity with precarious groups, civic participation and politics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Food and agricultural production: food sovereignty, agroecology, zero kilometer movement, food and sustainable soil experiences, urban agriculture and community gardens;
  • Arts: art and the commons, collaborative art and new forms of creative commons, distributed design;
  • Science and knowledge: collaborative forms of scientific production, citizen science;
  • Care and co-housing: solidarity networks for personal care, health care, age care, childcare, personal quantification movement, co-housing;
  • Culture: collaborative culture, open culture movement;
  • Economy, work and consumption: collaborative economy, circular economy, new forms of collaborative work and co-working, collaborative consumption, time banks, platforms for sharing resources and experiences;
  • Technology: Maker and DIY movement, open source technology initiatives, network manufacturing, medialab experiences, hacktivism;
  • Politics: collaborative forms of political and institutional governance, networks of cities, institutions and citizenship, participatory democracy, participatory budgeting, open government, collective intelligence for democracy.

We encourage the submission of papers drawing on theoretical and methodological approaches from diverse fields of study, such as the social sciences, humanities, architecture, urban planning and design. We also invite contributions from actors working with citizen participation in the sciences, arts, media and/or politics (e.g. in cultural institutions, cultural policy, social media platforms, cooperatives, and NGOs).

Abstracts submission deadline: September 16, 2018.

ISHTIP Workshop 2019

The International Society for the History and Theory of Intellectual Property will hold its 11th annual workshop at the University of Technology Sydney on 4 – 6 July 2019.

The city of Sydney is renowned for its spectacular natural setting and architectural landmarks. This year’s theme, Intellectual Property and the Visual, draws inspiration from its striking host city. The ‘visual turn’ in law has received growing attention in recent years from scholars exploring effects of the proliferation of images in social and legal spaces on the legal imagination. The 2019 workshop will explore aspects of the visual turn in the context of intellectual property law. Proposals for papers are invited to consider different ways in which the visual and the legal interact in relation to different fields of intellectual property law. These might include considering how intellectual property law treats visual subject matters, how subjects of intellectual property law or the law itself are represented or perceived, relationships between legal texts and images, the use of visual metaphors and images in the development of intellectual property law and interdisciplinary interactions with fields such as art history, visual studies, aesthetics, socio-legal and cultural studies.

Papers that address this call from an historical or theoretical perspective are welcomed from scholars working across the disciplines. Established and junior scholars are encouraged to submit papers and there will be a session devoted to presentations from doctoral students.  Proposers should be aware that authors (except for PhD students) do not present their own papers at ISHTIP workshops. Rather, a discussant presents a brief summary and critique of papers to facilitate a more general discussion.

Date for submission of proposals (extension): November 23, 2018.
