“Justice, Dignity and the Rule of Law”
*Call for Panels and Papers*
Faculty of Law, The University of Hong Kong
13-14 December 2018
We are pleased to announce that the 11th East Asian Conference on Philosophy of Law will be held in Hong Kong on December 13-14, 2018, under the auspices of the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Law and its Centre for Chinese Law. The event is also part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Faculty of Law of the University of Hong Kong. The overarching theme of the conference is “Justice, Dignity and the Rule of Law”.
The East Asian Conference on Philosophy of Law has been held once every two years since 1996. The China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing hosted the 10th conference in 2016, and Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul hosted the 9th conference in 2014. The conferences provide a forum for dialogue among East Asian scholars of legal philosophy and other scholars interested in Asian legal philosophy.
The 11th Conference will be divided into plenary sessions and parallel sessions. We now invite proposals to present papers at the Conference. A proposal to present a paper at the Conference should include the title and abstract of the paper. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for the conference, please note the following:
1. The closing date for submission of proposals is 30 June 2018.
2. The conference will be mainly in English and Chinese. Proposals to present papers at the Conference and panel proposals (mentioned below) should be written in English or Chinese. Oral presentations at the Conference should be in English or Chinese, except that (1) in panels formed (according to the procedure mentioned below) by Japanese or Korean scholars, the oral presentations may be in English, Japanese or Korean (scholars speaking in Japanese or Korean are strongly encouraged to provide a written English translation of their presentations); (2) interpretation will be provided for specially invited speakers at the plenary sessions who speak in Japanese or Korean (who will provide a written English translation of their speeches).
