Call for Papers

LAW, TOLERANCE AND DIVERSITY

The other’s otherness (L’altérité de l’autre) 

Tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world's cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. It is fostered by knowledge, openness, communication, and freedom of thought, conscience and belief. Tolerance is harmony in difference.

Unesco’s Declaration of Principles on Tolerance

Religious, cultural and ethnic diversity together with international, political, and economic integration bring issues of tolerance and diversity to the forefront; and raise important questions for the semiotic analysis of law. Recent events have shown that tolerance and diversity remain under threat despite the best efforts of the international community, which has attempted through international conventions, treaties and national statutes, to stem the march of intolerance.

The 5th International Round Tables for the Semiotics of Law invites contributors to reflect on the growing importance of Tolerance and Diversity in our international community and why attacks upon it have become so prolific. Contributors may choose to explore semiotic, rhetorical, pragmatic, sociolinguistic, psychological, philosophical and/or visual perspectives on the Law, Tolerance and Diversity.

Papers that examine the ways ‘actors’ in our society (legislators, politicians, activists, movie producers, singers, painters, graffiti artists, photographers etc.) have provoked public discourse to confront intolerance, racism, nationalism and anti-Semitism are particularly welcome.

The Round Table will provide an opportunity for a general discussion of issues in the semiotics of law as well as open discussion to increase our knowledge about our “other’s otherness” with respect to Law, Tolerance and Diversity.
