(VOLUME 2, ISSUE 2, MARCH 2011) CALL FOR PAPERS
Jindal Global Law Review (JGLR) is a faculty edited publication by the Jindal Global Law School of the O.P. Jindal Global University. JGLR seeks to promote original and diverse legal scholarship in a global context. The journal invites submissions from scholars, jurists and professionals for its March, 2011 issue on the theme ‘The Changing Role of Law in Asia: Revolution or Devolution?’. The issue will explore the effect of the evolution of laws and regulations in Asia with particular attention to the contemporary social, political and economic landscape of Asia. Some of the significant questions that may be considered for this issue include - How relevant are Asian culture, history and norms to understanding the changing face of its law? Is it time to evolve a new Asian analytic that looks towards a transforming and unifying global legal environment? Or is the law being used as a shield to prevent a possible revolution arising from globalization? To what extent are Asian countries influenced by each other and western views and critiques in their legal evolution? Can we characterize legal evolution in Asia as transformative or reductive? Submissions should highlight and question the Asian context of the law, though the perspectives provided need not be exclusively Asian. Works from a diversity of legal disciplines as well as of an inter-disciplinary perspective will be considered. Submissions may explore issues such as The displacement of people and the status of refugees in post-war Sri Lanka, Civil justice reforms in Hong Kong or reforms in the regulatory framework governing Islamic finance in Indonesia, Legal issues surrounding the reported toxic nature of Chinese exports of food and other products to the west, The significance of the new constitution of Nepal or of the judgment of an Indian lower court in the Bhopal gas leak tragedy, The legality of the emergency rule in Thailand or the elections in Myanmar, The decisions of the newly formed Competition Commission of India, or The territorial dispute surrounding the South China Sea in the context of the sixtieth anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Vietnam.
