Event: Comparative Methodologies and Global Law, 18 June 2019

Speakers: Veronika Fikfak, University of Cambridge; Liora Lazarus, Universty of Oxford; Jacco Bomhoff, London School of Economics

Chair: Dr Elizabeth O’Loughlin, City Law School

Comparative scholarship has played a key role in identifying, affirming, or disregarding the existence and development of globally converged norms. This event reflects on that contribution from a methodological perspective. How should country samples be selected for study, and why? Should we measure similarity, or difference? This panel hears from leading scholars with experience in comparison from empirical, doctrinal, and theoretical perspectives.
