Call for paper proposals for a special issue of Legal Pluralism and Critical Social Analysis

Legal Pluralism and Critical Social Analysis is preparing a special issue on the theme ‘Legal Pluralism in the Urban Realm’ and is calling for proposals to contribute.

Contributions to this special issue do more than empirically conclude a situation of legal pluralism in the urban realm; they theoretically engage with the interplay between multiple normative orders and the urban dynamics in which they operate. Contributions may focus on the Global North or South, or take a comparative perspective. You can find full details of the call here.

Proposals of circa 250 words can be submitted to d.a.m.chevalier@law.leidenuniv.nl by 15 September 2022, with ‘Special Issue’ in the message subject heading. Invitations to contribute will be sent out mid-October, first full drafts are expected mid-January 2023. Articles are in English with a wordcount of 8,000-10,000 words.

In addition, following the new format of the journal, we also invite different types of articles than the ‘traditional’ full paper. These contributions may be shorter essays in which authors may reflect on aspects of legal pluralism in the city, and their own experiences with this. They may also be interviews/interview articles which report on conversations with people working at the interface of scientific analysis and urban policy, who have concrete experiences in their everyday work with the empirical reality of legal pluralism in the city. To get an impression of what these contributions entail, we suggest having a look at the 40-years anniversary issue of the journal (2021, 53(3).
