Airlangga Online Summer School - Law and Diversity in Asia, 2-14 August 2021

Publish Date: May 23, 2021

Deadline: Jun 30, 2021

Asia is a region rich with diverse populations, where history, politics, religion and the legal landscape provide unique experiences and practices. In terms of religion, the state’s approach towards socially engineering religion, particularly Islam oscillates among appropriation, accommodation, control and subjugation of Islam in different political and legal frameworks. Thus, the striking feature of Asian legal systems, besides legal pluralism, is legal instrumentalism, the use of law as a tool for social engineering, specifically, but not exclusively, in the economic sphere.

Our goal is to train students to become world-class lawyers, able to transition from one legal system to another, bridging the gap between civil law and common law systems. The program is for undergraduate students from various countries who wish to learn Indonesian Law and to deepen their understanding of the laws of various Asian countries, particularly in Southeast Asian and South Asian region. The course offered in this program will provide an opportunity to reveal the unique experiences of legal development in Asia region. The program is uniquely prepared the students for facing the complexities of global society and adept at navigating legal and cultural norms of the Asia.
