Collaborative Research Networks
Rahela Khorakiwala and Jinee Lokaneeta
The purpose of this CRN is to bring together scholars and lawyers working on aspects of law and society in South Asia. The network welcomes those working on social scientific and policy-oriented aspects of contemporary South Asian law as much as those specializing in historical, philosophical, and literary aspects of law. There is a growing “law in context” movement within India that is working to counteract the doctrinal bent of much Indian legal scholarship. The CRN hopes to further this effort by facilitating communication and scholarly initiatives between researchers in South Asia and those outside of it. We welcome suggestions (names with e-mail addresses, if possible) of people who may want to be receive information about this CRN.
