In general, the forces of competition are imposing a need for more effective decision making at all levels in organizations.
Email the organizers For more than a decade legal geography broadly understood has been described as an emerging field of inquiry within socio-legal scholarship.
While interest in the significance of spatiality, place and landscape to the workings of the legal is increasing in quantity and sophistication there are few avenues for promoting productive exchanges among scholars scattered across a number of disciplines. The principal objective of the Legal Geography CRN is to facilitate communication and collaboration among interested scholars.
The focus of our endeavor is the relationship between those topics conventionally investigated by geographers space, spatiality, place, borders, mobility, circulation, landscape and so on and those of interest to socio-legal scholars.
However, we wish to promote transdisciplinary perspectives on these relationships and welcome the participation of anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists, historians, philosophers, workers in cultural studies, environmental studies and so on.
The CRN will also be dedicated to the principle of theoretical and normative plurality. Transnational and Global Legal Ordering Organizers: Gregory Shaffer, University of California, Irvine School of Law, Terence Halliday, American Bar Foundation Email the organizers This CRN will address the processes through which international organizations and transnational networks create law and legal norms, and in the process, shape national and international social, political and economic fields.
It will examine these processes at the international and transnational levels, their articulation with national legal processes, and their impact on relations of economic, social and political power.
International organizations, trans-governmental networks, and the increasing involvement of non-state actors at the global level, including corporations and non-governmental organizations, affect and govern public and private interactions more extensively and intensively than ever before.
The CRN will examine the role of actors and mechanisms in the creation of transnational law, norms and legal orders and their impact on domestic law and practice through processes of transformation and resistance.
Technology, Law and Society Organizers: The CRN focuses on technology, in the current day and in a speculative future, as both the subject and object of social life.
In the former instance, we explore and comment on, inter alia, the use of technologies that surveil and control social actors; that provide or prohibit access to legal institutions and the polity more broadly; that are used by legal actors in a variety of practice settings; and that change societal understandings and expectations of what law is and how it is experienced.
In the latter instance, we examine, inter alia, how regulators, legislators, and the judiciary respond to shifts in the technological landscape, both historic and contemporary; how organizations operating at the cutting edge of technological innovation comply with or contest regulation; the role of the legal profession in defining what is and is not regulable via technology; and the way social, political, legal, and market forces promote or dissuade adoption of different types of technologies.
The CRN invites participation from across the disciplinary and interdisciplinary spectrum, from legal theorists and sociologists to political scientists and economists; from sociolegal scholars to technologists, information studies scholars, and systems designers.
Additionally, we welcome all methods and methodologists, including quantitative e. New technologies present novel ethical and normative questions around privacy, ownership, access, and compliance; we welcome critical engagement on this front as well. With technological change come consequences, both anticipated and unanticipated.
This CRN attempts to make the study of these consequences—and their origins—a pertinent and pressing part of the conversation in the next generation of sociolegal scholarship.
International Socio-Legal Feminisms Email the organizers This collaborative research network seeks to accelerate the exchange of interdisciplinary feminist research on domestic, transnational, and international governance concerning gendered patterns of social and economic issues affecting women Although many policy issues affecting women are embedded in specific domestic social contexts and legal regimes,gendered patterns of power are remain deeply entrenched over time and place.
Feminist collaborations across national and political boundaries can quickly expand understanding of fundamental problems, options for strategic transformations, and impact assessment. The aim is also to over-bridge the reality gap in feminist theory by placing different methods of research in the interactive context of theory and practise over time.
Colonization and Law Organizers: These ideas and institutions have continued in postcolonial worlds, and continue to affect their legal practice.
The Law and Colonization CRN proposes to examine legal formation in colonial states and the impact of those formations on the law of both the colonized and colonizers. Simultaneously, the CRN will also critically analyze arguments from colonial continuity. In examining the extent and nature of colonial influence on legal institutions and legal culture, are we unduly privileging the colonial encounter?
It is our belief that a cross disciplinary approach combining theoretical and empirical strengths of various disciplines will create a fuller understanding of the interaction between law and colonial processes.
Disability Legal Studies Email the organizers This CRN invites interdisciplinary and cross-national scholarship on the role of law in the social construction of disability. Disability legal studies locates itself at the intersection of sociolegal studies with disability studies, which focuses on disability as a social and cultural phenomenon, identity, social construct and metaphor.
Disability studies emerged as a counterpoint to the medicalized perspectives on disability, and invites scholars to think about disability a social category on par with race, gender, class, and sexual orientation.Financial Accounting and Analysis.

Structural functionalism, or simply functionalism, is "a framework for building theory that sees society as a complex system whose parts work together to promote solidarity and stability".
This approach looks at society through a macro-level orientation, which is a broad focus on the social structures that shape society as a whole, and believes that society . This chapter discusses that across the board, international law is an important part of the structure of our international society.
It adds that states accept it as such, and their record in observing it bears comparison with the level of law observance in many countries.
