The 2023 Bergen Exchanges on Law & Social Transformation – the 10th edition – will take place the week of 14th -18th August. The program will emerge over the coming months and can be viewed here. You can also take a look at the program and recorded events of past exchanges.
The annual PhD course Effects of Lawfare; Courts and law as battlegrounds for social change – where the Bergen Exchanges is an integrated part – will run from August 1st -21st. It is a hybrid course where the first two weeks are digital. The third week, the students will participate physically during the Bergen Exchanges. The 2023 edition of the PhD course will have two specialized tracks: “Child Rights and Child Protection” and “Democracy, Autocratization and Resistance”. In addition, there will be a general track exploring lawfare dynamics and effects across a range of thematic fields. Here is a link to programs and impressions from earlier PhD courses. The call for applications for the PhD course will be announced in late February with the deadline for applications 15 April.
Attendance is open and free both for the Bergen Exchanges and the PhD course, but those who come from outside Bergen will have to cover their own travel and accommodation (except for those who are part of collaborative LawTransform projects with funding to covering this).
