Last week, as part of my visiting research fellowship at the Institute for Advance Studies in the Humanities (IASH), University of Edinburgh, I had the opportunity to talk about my work on human rights negotiations in their weekly seminar. In my presentation, I discussed the concepts of interlegality, plural legal orders and vernacularisations and the challenges of studying human rights negotiations. I really appreciate the comments and interests from my colleagues at IASH. The text of my presentation is available here.
I am thinking to develop this into possibly a sort of basic approach to human rights negotiations. That article will outline some indicators and categories to measure human rights negotiations. If you have any thoughts on this subject, do let me know.
On another note, please check out my latest publication, a book review of ‘Political and Legal Transformations of an Indonesian Polity: The Nagari from Colonisation to Decentralisation’.
I hope your summer has been great so far.
