Abstract

In December 2013, a small group of academics gathered at the University of Leeds for a working paper conference entitled Spaces of Indigenous Justice. According to the concept paper for the workshop, the plan was to use the ‘spatial turn’ that occurred in the humanities as a foundation for exploring new conceptions of space and to facilitate dialogue across academic disciplines under the umbrella of socio-legal studies. The ultimate objective of this interdisciplinary and comparative project is to bring together scholars of law, legal theory, sociology, political philosophy, anthropology, geography, and public policy in order to consider ‘spaces’ of Indigenous justice and governance, as well as those of interaction, transfer, reciprocity, recognition, and hybridity between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous worlds.
