The Asian Law and Society Association (ALSA) is pleased to announce that the 2023 ALSA Annual Meeting, which will be held on 15-16 December 2023 at Sunway University, Malaysia, is open for registration. A Junior Scholar's Workshop will be held on 14 the December 2023.
Conference Theme: Asian Law and Society - Law, Life and Sustainability Life on earth has never confronted so many existential challenges. Artificial intelligence and robotics have posed challenges to human worth and dignity. The pandemic has taken away the lives of humans as well as animals. The urgent climate crisis has threatened humans, animals, and nature. There is no doubt that we are seeing an existential crisis and the sustainability of all is at stake.
To what extent has the law caused and/or exacerbated such a crisis?
To what extent may the law be part of solutions? In what ways can the law lend help to sustainability?
The 2023 ALSA Annual Meeting invites Asian law and society scholars to face up to these existential challenges and consider the role of law, if any, in mitigating these challenges.
