- The appointees will contribute to the development of the Department’s research issues relating to law and cultural diversity in a globalized world.
- The Department of Law & Anthropology was established in March 2012. One of its aims is to offer a prominent platform where both lawyers (academics and practitioners) and anthropologists are involved in the study of diversity challenges in the contemporary era.
- Research topics:
- The Department will prioritize empirically informed research on (and analysis of)
legal practice in the face of cultural diversity
- in Europe as well as globally: inter alia in the field of migration; minority rights; identity issues; human rights more broadly defined; property claims and their protections. This includes the study of the workings of institutions of social regulation in various settings.
- Research method:
- The application of legal anthropological insights (extensive empirical research/fieldwork) will be part of the research method. The researchers will receive, as needed, appropriate training in the research methods of legal anthropology.
