This course, organized by Centre for Social Studies in collaboration with the PhD program in “Law, Justice and Citizenship in the 21st century”, is intended to be a theoretical, epistemological, methodological and interdisciplinary dialogue on a plurality of perspectives and experiences of law, justice and citizenship lived in various geographies. After the first edition “Law and/in Society – Access to Law and Justice”, in this second edition the course aggregates lectures, debates and a study visit on a common theme "Crime and/in Society: Rule of Law and Exception", in an interdisciplinary, broad and innovative perspective.
