Socio-legal Scholarship on Southeast Asia

The Asian Journal of Comparative Law is about to publish a special edition on Socio-legal Scholarship on Southeast Asia.

This special issue is the result of a workshop held in 2012 on Socio-legal Research on Southeast Asia: Themes, Directions, and Challenges, organised by Lynette J. Chua and Andrew Harding at the Centre for Asian Legal Studies, NUS, Singapore. As the first in a series of academic gatherings planned to advance socio-legal research on Southeast Asia, the workshop brought together leading scholars in the field and researchers from the region. Its goals were to foster an academic community, articulate potential research directions, and thus provide the bases for subsequent conferences and projects that engage the broader field of socio-legal studies while giving voice to Southeast Asian perspectives and experiences.
