The Bergen Exchanges on Law & Social Transformation is a week of public seminars, project workshops and social events – and a PhD course on Effects of Lawfare. We invite academics, students and practitioners from all over the world to discuss different aspects of the potential of law as an instrument for social change. This year, the overall focus is on Health and the Law and the Rights of the Child. As part of the Bergen Exchanges, we invite a leading international scholar to give the Annual Lecture on Law & Social Transformation.
