Private International Law as Global Governance (PILAGG) aims to present conflict of law topics against an interdisciplinary setting within the context of global governance. In its preceding years, PILAGG focused on boundaries, time, and space. This year, PILAGG will build on this overarching framework to include the involvement of language as a boundary. The integration of language as borders between disciplines, systems, and communities will be highlighted across a series of seminars and panel discussions for the academic year of 2018-2019. Guest speakers hail from a variety of social science backgrounds such as epistemology, anthropology, history, and law.
The question posed is: could language be regarded for its content or for its capacity to act as a means? Is language understood at face value or for its interpretation?
All events are organized by the Sciences Po Law School in conjunction with the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF).
