Chapter 1: Future of Law and Development Research: An Introduction to the Encyclopedia of Law and Development
Full access

This introduction to the Law and Development Encyclopaedia situates law and development as a field of inquiry within a forward-looking vision, acknowledging its past and arguing that it has a future if understood as an equal exchange of knowledge between scholars in the Global South and the Global North on how law impacts on societies in the Global South, as well as on marginalized and underprivileged communities in the North through scholarly self-awareness and a conscious self-critical effort.
