The “Junges Forum Race and law: French and German cross-perspectives Berlin” organised by the Centre Marc Bloch in association with Max Panck Institute, the Humboldt University and the Collège Doctoral Franco allemand en droit public comparé will be held in Berlin from October 19 to October 20, 2017. It aims to gather junior researchers specialising in law as well as in sociology, philosophy, cultural studies or political sciences. The colloquium is addressed to Ph.D. candidates, young scholars, post-docs, assistant professors and research assistants, regardless of their nationality. The working languages are German, English and French. Understanding two of the three languages is mandatory, the common
work language is English.
The topics of race and law have been the subject of extensive debates and research at least in the Anglo-American context. This colloquium undertakes to analyse and explore in how far this has been the case in France and Germany and which legal impact at national and international levels racial considerations have. The colloquium also offers the opportunity to discuss “recent” political and societal events and to analyse the discourses and policies surrounding those, may it be the question of borders or the problematic of police brutality for example.
