ANU Law Conference: Law & Inequality

A major public law conference will be held virtually & at the ANU College of Law in Canberra on 16-18 February 2022. Growing inequality is a defining challenge of our times, domestically and globally. Yet the role of inequality in social, political and economic life is often muted (sometimes, invisible) in much public law scholarship. Notably, public law’s foundational concepts were forged in a social world where the inevitability of inequality was often taken for granted. The stuttering processes of democratisation have rendered that assumption untenable.
