Interested in dynamics of law and social change, or interdisciplinary research?
Volunteer for the Bergen Exchanges 2016!

Bergen Exchanges is a weeklong event hosted annually by Centre on Law & Social Transformation. Through seminars, lectures and meetings, we invite academics, students and practitioners from all over the world to discuss potential and limits of law as an instrument of social change – and how we can establish what the effects are. This year, the overall focus is on Boarders, Inequality and the Law. The public events take place between 22nd to 26th August, with a PhD course and workshops starting already August 18th.

To make this possible, we need your help!
We are looking for students who would like to help with logistics, hospitality, marketing and more, related to both public and closed events. As a volunteer you sign up to work a minimum of 15 hours, divided over three days, sometime between 18th and 26th August. The shifts are separated in morning, daytime and evening sections, and will be adjusted to your availability.

Preliminary overview of themes and days:
Monday 22 August: Inequality & the Law
Tuesday 23 August: Gendered Boundaries
Wednesday 24 August: Law & Inequality beyond Borders Thursday 25 August: Trans-Boundary Lawfare
Friday 26 August: Lawfare over Natural Resources.
