Law and Society in South Asia (LASSA) Workshop 2023

December 15-17, 2023

The LASSA Workshop is a North-South collaboration among Law & Society scholars working on Pakistan and postcolonial South Asia more broadly. The Workshop is envisaged as a key platform for bringing together diverse and multidisciplinary scholars to deepen Law & Society research and methods regarding South Asia. It has two primary objectives: (i) to enable and facilitate connections between global LSA networks and local communities of sociolegal researchers on South Asia with limited access to Global North institutions and networks, and (ii) to strengthen South-South mentoring and collaboration on Law & Society in South Asia. The inaugural LASSA Workshop is an intensive three-day event, hosted by the Institute of Development & Economic Alternatives (IDEAS) from December 15th to 17th, 2023. 

The LASSA Workshop is generously supported by the Global Collaboration Grant 2023, LSA.

For more information, please see the Call for Papers.
