Decision to Postpone the Next Biennial Course and Conference of the Commission on Legal Pluralism
The next biennial course and conference of the Commission on Legal Pluralism were scheduled to take place in July 2020, in Brisbane, Australia (on July 10 to 13 and 15 to 17 respectively). It is with deep regret that the Executive Body has made the hard decision today to postpone the 2020 course and conference to 2021, again to be held in Brisbane.
In view of the spread of the Corona Virus and its impact on mobility, we are worried it will make it difficult for people to travel to Australia. Australia currently has a travel ban on people from China and Iran and there is talk of extending this to South Korea and Italy. It is hard to predict where things will stand in July, but were we to continue with this conference many participants would need to start applying for visa and booking their tickets now. We thus worry that even if the situation in July is conducive, not only the number but also the diversity of participants will have severely dwindled. This directly clashes with the core rationale for having the biannual courses and conference, which lies in the bringing together of scholars and practitioners from various regions.
The theme of our next conference ‘Knowledge, Power and the Politics of Difference - Looking at Legal Pluralism “from Down-under”’ remains unchanged. When we have set a date for next year, we will contact everyone who has proposed a panel or paper for this year as well as invite new panel and paper proposals. We will also contact envisaged course participants whether they would still like to partake in the course as well as invite new applications.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change of plans, but expect that you will understand our reasoning. As soon as we have information on the new date of the course and conference we will let you know.
