Mobilizing Justice
Mobilizing Justice will offer a venue for scholars in the social sciences, humanities, legal studies and other fields to critically examine how issues of law, crime and justice intersect with issues of mobility, and how justice is mobilized through individual and collective action. The field of interdisciplinary justice studies has much to offer and much to learn from mobilities paradigms. The current historical moment is a time of exceptionally mobile information and capital, forced migration due to war and climate crisis, punitive restrictions on the movement of people across borders, and movement of people inside borders. The mobilizations of resistance to these injustices provide an urgent context for grappling with questions of justice and mobility on multiple scales. In the time of COVID-19, questions around (im-)mobility, borders, and sovereignty appear particularly important, as are examinations that critically track the mobilization of new policing and regulatory powers in the context of this current health crisis. Mobilizing Justice will bring interdisciplinary scholars of law, crime and justice together with community activists and professionals for a critical dialog on a wide range of issues related to movement, mobilities and the mobilization of justice. We are organizing several keynote speakers, roundtables, thematic sessions, and presentations by leading and emerging scholars, community activists, jurists and journalists. Finalized keynote speakers and topics will be announced at www.cijs.ca when confirmed, along with other conference details. All keynotes, panels, and sessions will be hosted online.
