A range of theoretical, methodological, and ethical challenges take place when we engage in research on ‎‎autocratization and democracy. Focusing on the Latin America scenario, while also ‎considering ‎comparative ‎dialogues with countries all over the world in different stages of autocratization, ‎the conference will contribute ‎to comparative analyses of the dynamics of democracy and autocratization ‎in the region, including discussions on the role of courts, police violence, contestations over land, indigenous rights, sexual and reproductive right and climate and environmental politics.

The BeExSampa conference is modelled on the Bergen Exchanges on Law & Social Transformation, being part of the LawTransform project Effects of Rights & Law, supported by the Research Council of Norway and the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills.

The PhD course on Research Ethics in Empirical Social and Legal Research will run from 28 November to 8 December. The course combines real-time online sessions, group mentoring sessions, and live and hybrid public seminars. Read more about the PhD course here.
