Call for Papers: Enforcing Equality? Promises and Limits of Legal Responses to Systemic Inequalities

2018-03-06

Inequalities are rising, with social divisions being increasingly presented as cultural, ethnic, religious, or racial, as resulting from unchangeable traces and/or deep historical roots, revolving around essentialist visions of groups of people. This undermines the moral equality of, and solidarity between, individuals that are central to constitutional democracy, and arguably to the very concept of law. The impact on law could not be more pronounced. While legal solutions to combat inequalities had proved in many cases to be insufficient (that many claim is the result of the individualist approach that cannot capture systemic violations resulting from exploitation), even these limited responses have now come under attack in many contexts, including gender and sexual orientation. Documenting and understanding this process can become a part of overcoming this challenge and can lead to new insights and innovative solutions that enable law to address systemic inequalities.
