New Website: The Laws of Social Cohesion

LSC is an interdisciplinary project in which scholars from the humanities, law, and social sciences work together to investigate issues that affect the role of law in social cohesion.

Law is a social practice that actively shapes social coexistence. The Laws of Social Cohesion charts the manyfold ways in which the law affects social cohesion: How can it promote integration, inclusion and societal discourse? Where are the limits of its integrative capacity? To what extent does it prevent participation and drives society further apart? LSC is an interdisciplinary research endeavor at the intersection of law and the social sciences. It is a joint project of the Integrative Research Institute Law & Society (LSI) of Humboldt University, the Freie Universität Empirical Legal Studies Center (FUELS), and Humboldt University's research network Recht im Kontext.
