At the ECPR General Conference in Innsbruck, 26–28 August 2020, Johan Karlsson Schaffer is chairing a panel on legal mobilisation in the Law & Courts section.
Panel 5 – Legal Mobilization: Patterns and Consequences
Chair: Johan Karlsson Schaffer (University of Gothenburg)
The transformation of law, policy and courts as a result of legal mobilization has been identified all over the world. The impact of litigation transcends individual rights protection and allows the courts to shape policy in areas as disparate as taxation, welfare, education and asylum. What are the evolving patterns of strategic litigation? How and when do actors mobilize the law? Under what conditions does legal mobilization have an impact on law, policy, and courts? This panel provides an opportunity for scholars to examine evolving patterns and consequences of legal mobilization.
If you’re interested in participating in the panel, send me an abstract.
Deadline: 1 February, 2020.
Please circulate the call to anyone you think might be interested.
