IALS DIRECTOR’S SEMINAR SERIES: A reparatory account of health inequalities

The question of reparations has a long and contentious history. Reparations were part of the Slavery Abolition Act 1833, with payments made to slave owners for their economic loss. These payments compounded and entrenched wealth and power in many institutional and family names familiar today. Conversely, the issue of reparations to families, communities, and populations who lived through or continue to experience the deprivations and racism entrenched by chattel slavery have been fiercely contested.

CCLS Seminar: The Law of Rule
FAB2.25 (Faculty of Arts)

Seminar with Scott Veitch (University of Hong Kong), hosted by the Centre for Critical Legal Studies. The overarching theme of this presentation is an old one: how social and political change comes about through law. But the particular focus is on how authoritarian rule is achieved rapidly through legal means, and what the social and moral consequences of this are. Looking at Hong Kong in the aftermath of the 2019 protests, it draws on conceptual analysis and empirical observations to chart the ways in which law and legal institutions operate to transform the nature and experience of social relations.
