Juris Diversitas was founded in 2007. We're an international, interdisciplinary community for the study of legal and normative mixtures and movements. Originally comparatists, we've opened up a conversation with anthropologists, geographers, historians, philosophers, and sociologists, both within the law and beyond.
We also co-organised, with the Department of Civil Law and the Mediterranean Institute, both of the University of Malta, a symposium on 'Mediterranean Legal and Normative Hybridity' in Malta in June 2010. At the symposium, the Mediterranean Hybridity Project was launched; a project roundtable was held in Catania in October 2010. The papers presented in Malta were published in the Journal of Civil Law Studies.
Most recently, a workshop entitledCrossroads East and West: visions of the economy in the Islamic and Western legal traditions was co-organised with The Protection Project and held inTurin (Italy) from 4-5 February 2013. Our hope is to publish a collection of articles based on the papers delivered at the conference. Our first public conference will be held at the SICL in June 2013.
