TWO BIG JUMPS

DOS GRANDES SALTOS ADELANTE

Everybody loves the Oñati Institute for being a niche far away from the hectic and cruel academic life. We hope the Institute will remain a peaceful place but the niche existence has definitely come to an end. Not as an accident or as a gift but as the result of enormous efforts by quite a number of people in the Institute or close to it. I am talking about the official recognition of our Masters program and our Masters degree by the University of the Basque Country and the First European Socio-Legal Conference.

Todo el mundo tiene en gran estima el Instituto de Oñati por tratarse de un santuario alejado de la febril y cruel vida académica. Esperamos que el Instituto prosiga siendo un enclave pacífico, pero la permanencia del santuario está a punto de llegar a su fin. Pero no por accidente o por regalo, sino como resultado de enormes esfuerzos de bastante gente del Instituto o cercana al mismo. Hablo del reconocimiento oficial de nuestro programa de Master y el título de Master por la Universidad del País Vasco, y de la Primera Conferencia Socio-Jurídica Europea.

On the 26th of May, 2005, the Governing Board meeting of the University of the Basque Country decided to officially recognize the International Masters in Sociology of Law offered by the IISJ, a Masters programme which in the future will be run on the legal basis of an Agreement between these two institutions. Becoming part of the Basque (and Spanish) educational system solves many of the problems we had with the recognition of our grades and Master certificates in the past. This also resolves past issues with participation in domestic and international scholarship programmes. All future Master students will profit from this achievement. Their titles will receive (amongst others) the signature of the Rector.

El 26 de mayo de 2005, la reunión del Consejo rector de la Universidad del País Vasco decidió reconocer oficialmente el Master Internacional en Sociología Jurídica ofrecido por el IISJ, un programa de Master que en el futuro caminará sobre la base legal de un acuerdo entre estas dos instituciones. Convirtiéndose en parte del sistema educativo vasco (y español), se solucionan muchos de los problemas que teníamos anteriormente, gracias al reconocimiento de las notas y certificados del Master. A la vez se resuelven los anteriores problemas de participación en los programas de becas académicas domésticas e internacionales. Todos los futuros estudiantes del Master sacarán provecho de este logro, y sus títulos recibirán (entre otros) la firma del Rector.

Since we did not want to wait until the next IISJ Board meeting we had to consult with all Board members via email in order to attain full support. Equally supportive were our colleagues and the academic authorities of the University of the Basque Country - and nothing would have been achieved without the enthusiasm and activity of my successor, Joxerramon Bengoetxea.

Puesto que no deseábamos esperar hasta la próxima reunión del Consejo del IISJ, hemos tenido que consultar, vía correo electrónico, a todos sus miembros para obtener su completo apoyo. Semejante colaboración hemos logrado de nuestros colegas y las autoridades académicas de la Universidad del País Vasco, y nada se hubiera conseguido sin el entusiasmo y la actividad de mi sucesor, Joxerramon Bengoetxea.

Another jump toward further academic recognition is the First European Socio-Legal Conference, to be held July 6-8, 2005. The programme (see below in this newsletter) gives evidence of a broad research agenda and shows that the time has come to build a European identity in our field of study. We all in Europe agree that the Congresses of the Law & Society Association and the research output of our US-American colleagues have the highest standard in the Sociology of Law. But recognition of this academic standard does not necessarily mean an automatic identification with the choice of research topics and acceptance of assumptions, interpretations, and methods. The Oñati event may become the beginning of a strong European Sociology of Law. The Institute is already planning to host a similar conference in the near future with an emphasis on Latin American legal culture.

Otro logro tendente al mayor reconocimiento académico es la Primera Conferencia Socio-Jurídica de Europa, que se celebrará los días 6, 7 y 8 de julio de 2005. El programa (ver abajo en este Boletín) evidencia una amplia agenda de investigación, y muestra que ha llegado la hora de construir una identidad europea en nuestras áreas de investigación. Todos estamos de acuerdo, en Europa, de que los congresos de la Law & Society Association y las investigaciones llevadas a cabo por nuestro colegas de Norteamérica alcanzan el más alto nivel en Sociología Jurídica. No obstante, el reconocimiento de este nivel académico no significa necesariamente una identificación automática con la elección de los temas de investigación y la aceptación de presunciones, interpretaciones y métodos. El acontecimiento de Oñati puede convertirse en el punto de arranque de una poderosa Sociología del Derecho Europea. El Instituto está planteándose albergar un Congreso similar, en un futuro próximo, con especial énfasis en Latinoamérica y su identidad socio-jurídica.

Again, this conference is a combined effort of many people but the person I should mention in the first place is the Institute’s meeting organizer Malen Gordoa Mendizabal. As everybody knows, nothing will go wrong if she is in charge.

May 31, 2005

De nuevo, este Congreso es el resultado del esfuerzo combinado de mucha gente, pero la persona que me gustaría mencionar en primer plano es la organizadora de reuniones del Instituto, Malen Gordoa Mendizábal. Como todos saben, todo irá bien siendo ella la encargada.

REPORT - INFORME

AURRERANZKO BI JAUZI HANDI

DEUX GRANDS BONDS EN AVANT

Mundu guztiak dauka estimu handitan Oñatiko Institutua bizitza akademiko gogor eta krudeletik aldendutako santutegia delako. Espero dugu Erakundeak gune baketsua izaten jarraitzea, baina santutegiaren iraupena amaierara iristekotan dago. Baina ez ustekabean edo norbaiten opariagatik, Erakundeko edo hurbileko pertsona askoren ahalegin izugarrien emaitza gisa baizik. Gure Masterraren programa eta Masterreko titulua Euskal Herriko Unibertsitateak ofizialki onartzeaz eta Europako Lehenengo Konferentzia Sozio-Juridikoaz ari naiz.

Tout le monde aime l’Institut d’Oñati parce qu’il est un havre de paix loin de la vie académique, si cruelle et agitée. Nous espérons que l’Institut restera toujours un endroit paisible, mais la permanence du havre de paix est définitivement révolue. Non pas par accident ou suite à un cadeau, mais grâce aux énormes efforts fournis par un certain nombre de personnes de l’Institut ou proches de lui. Je veux parler de la reconnaissance officielle par l’Université du Pays Basque de notre cours de Master et de notre diplôme de Master et de la première Conférence Européenne de Sociologie Juridique.

2005eko maiatzaren 26an, Euskal Herriko Unibertsitateko Zuzendaritza Taldeak LSNEk eskaintzen duen Lege-Soziologiako Nazioarteko Masterra ofizialki onartzea erabaki zuen, etorkizunean bere ibilbidea bi erakunde horien arteko lege-oinarrian egingo duen Master-programa. Euskadiko (eta Espainiako) hezkuntza-sistemaren parte bihurtuz, aurrez geneuzkan arazo asko konpontzen dira, Masterreko notak eta ziurtagiriak onartzeari esker. Etxeko eta nazioarteko beka akademikoetako programetan parte hartzeko aurreko arazoak ere konpontzen dira. Masterreko etorkizuneko ikasle guztiek aterako dute lorpen horretatik probetxua, eta beren tituluek (beste batzuen artean) Errektorearen sinadura izango dute.

Lors de sa réunion du 26 mai 2005, le Conseil de l’Université du Pays Basque a décidé de reconnaître officiellement le Master International de Sociologie Juridique de l’IISJ, un programme de master qui désormais s’appuiera sur la base légale d’une convention entre ces deux établissements. Le fait d’intégrer le système éducatif basque (et espagnol) résout les nombreux problèmes que nous avons eus pour la validation de nos notes et nos diplômes du Master dans le passé. Ceci résout également la question de la participation dans les programmes de bourses nationaux et internationaux. Tous les futurs étudiants du Master bénéficieront de cette validation, et leurs diplômes se verront apposer (entre autres) la signature du Recteur.

LSNEko Kontseiluaren hurrengo bilera arte itxaron nahi ez genuenez, kide guztiak posta elektronikoz kontsultatu behar izan ditugu babes osoa lortzeko. Gure kideetatik eta Euskal Herriko Unibertsitateko ikasketa-aginpideetatik izugarrizko lankidetza lortu dugu, baina ezer ezin izango litzateke lortu nire ondorengo den Joxerramon Bengoetxearen gogo eta jardunik gabe.

Comme nous n’avons pas voulu attendre jusqu’à la prochaine réunion du Conseil de l’IISJ, nous avons dû consulter tous les membres du Conseil par e-mail afin d’obtenir leur soutien. De plus, la collaboration de nos collègues et des autorités académiques de l’Université du Pays Basque a été précieuse, et rien n’aurait pu être réalisé sans l’enthousiasme et l’activité de mon successeur, Joxerramon Bengoetxea.

Ikasketek onespen handiagoa izatera daraman beste lorpen bat 2005ko uztailaren 6, 7 eta 8an ospatuko den Europako Lehenengo Konferentzia Sozio-Juridikoa da. Programak (ikus Buletin honetan) ikerketa-agenda handia agertzen du, eta gure ikerketa-alorretan identitate europar bat eraikitzeko garaia iritsi dela adierazten du. Guztiok ados gaude, Europan, Law & Society Association kongresuak eta Iparramerikako gure kideek egindako ikerketek dutela LegeSoziologiako mailarik altuena. Baina ikasketa-maila horren onespenak ez du nahitaez esanahi ikerketa-gaien aukeraketarekin automatikoki identifikatzea edo iritziak, interpretazioak eta metodoak onartzea. Oñatiko gertakaria Zuzenbidearen Europako Soziologiaren abiapuntu boteretsua bihur daiteke. Erakundea etorkizun hurbilean antzeko Kongresu bat antolatzea pentsatzen ari da, Latinoamerikan eta lurralde horren identitate sozio-juridikoan arreta berezia jarriko duena. Berriz ere, Kongresu hori jende askoren ahaleginaren emaitza da, baina bereziki aipatu nahi dudan pertsona Erakundeko bileraantolatzailea da, Malen Gordoa Mendizabal. Dakizuen moduan, guztia ondo joango da arduraduna bera bada.

2005eko maiatzak 31

Un autre bond vers une plus ample reconnaissance académique est la première Conférence Européenne de Sociologie Juridique, qui aura lieu du 6 au 8 juillet 2005. Le programme (voir ci-dessous dans ce bulletin) est impressionnant : il prouve que le moment est venu de construire une identité européenne dans nos domaines de recherche. En Europe, nous sommes tous d’accord pour affirmer que les congrès de la Law and Society Association et que les travaux de recherche socio-juridique de nos collègues nord-américains sont du plus haut niveau. Mais la reconnaissance de ce niveau académique n’implique pas nécessairement une identification automatique avec le choix des thèmes de recherche et l’acceptation des hypothèses, des interprétations et des méthodes. L’événement d’Oñati pourrait être le point de départ d’une sociologie juridique européenne forte. L’Institut pense déjà à organiser un congrès similaire qui mettra l’accent sur la culture socio-juridique latino-américaine. Une fois de plus, ce Congrès est le résultat de l’effort combiné de nombreuses personnes, mais la personne que je voudrais citer en premier lieu est l’organisatrice de réunions de l’Institut, Malen Gordoa Mendizabal. Comme tout le monde le sait, avec elle tout ira bien.

WORKSHOPS

WORKSHOPS CELEBRADOS DURANTE EL AÑO 2005 Y HASTA LA PUBLICACIÓN DEL BOLETÍN WORKSHOPS THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN 2005 UNTIL THE PUBLICATION OF THE NEWSLETTER Normativa / Guidelines for 2007: http://www.iisj.es

Democracia Participativa y Desarrollo Humano 1 – 2 Marzo 2005 Parte-Hartuz es un equipo de investigación constituido por diversos profesores/as e investigadores/as de la Universidad del País Vasco - Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea que tratan de responder a tres ejes de intervención: investigación, formación y difusión de las posibilidades, modalidades, problemas y potencialidades de los procesos de participación ciudadana en Euskal Herria, especialmente en el ámbito local. En el marco de este objetivo, en el Seminario Internacional en “Democracia Participativa y Desarrollo Humano” participaron casi un centenar de profesores/as, responsables políticos y técnicos. Tomaron parte Pedro Ibarra, con Participación y Poder, Quim Brugué presentó la metodología participativa de elaboración del Proyecto de Estatuto de Catalunya. Dimensiones del Poder y del Gobierno, y Manuela Fernández, que incorpora las reflexiones sobre el concepto de Ciudadanía a partir de la experiencia de Cabezas de San Juan. Yves Sintomer presentó la ponencia Presupuestos participativos como instrumento de transformación?, en la que hizo un repaso al desarrollo de este tipo de experiencias a nivel mundial, y Bonneto presentó un marco general de análisis de la participación ciudadana en contextos de exclusión social como los de América Latina. Diana Segovia se acercó a la puesta en marcha de las estrategias de sostenibilidad en América Latina; Renée Jablkowski abordó las dimensiones más psicológicas de la participación en el desarrollo individual; y José María Puppo apuntó algunas dimensiones centrales de la participación como instrumento de desarrollo local.

Paisaje Ciudadano, Delito y Percepción de la Inseguridad: Investigación Interdisciplinaria del Medio Urbano 7 - 8 Abril 2005 Durante los días 7 y 8 de abril veinticinco investigadores sobre el fenómeno del control social en el medio urbano pertenecientes a distintas disciplinas (geógrafos, arquitectos, abogados, psicólogos y antropólogos, entre otros) se reunieron bajo el auspicio del Instituto Internacional de Sociología Jurídica de Oñati (País Vasco). Allí pusieron en común un buen número de reflexiones sobre metodología, herramientas tecnológicas y conceptos con los que se trabaja. Asistieron personas de Portugal, Argentina, Francia, Estados Unidos, México y de todo el Estado Español. Así, han surgido de la reflexión un grupo de apuntes provisionales, entre los que se destacan la necesidad de reforzar el carácter interdisciplinario de la investigación del fenómeno y la importancia de que se reconozca como derecho de los investigadores, en una sociedad democrática, el de acceder a los registros relativos a la actividad relativa a la seguridad pública. Los investigadores han asumido el compromiso de constituir una red que permita tanto emprender actividades en común como gestionar espacios de intercambio de documentación, datos y conclusiones. El primer desafío para llevar a la práctica este compromiso es la publicación de un volumen con los trabajos y las conclusiones del seminario, que esperamos estén disponibles a finales de este año.

WORKSHOPS

Respuestas a la Exclusión: Políticas e Inmigracion, Interculturalidad y Mediación 14 – 15 Abril 2005 Los días 14 y 15 de abril se celebró en Oñati un Workshop sobre Respuestas a la Exclusión: Políticas de Inmigración, Interculturalidad y Mediación, al cual acudieron diferentes expertos procedentes de Buenos Aires, Madrid, Valencia, Andalucía, Catalunya y País Vasco. En este workshop se encontraron diferentes personas que en los últimos años han elaborado diferentes e importantes documentos, han reflexionado, o han venido participando desde su actividad profesional docente, desde organismos sociales de intervención o desde la investigación desde campos como la Sociología, el Derecho, Psiquiatría y psicología, la Mediación, la Antropología y la Pedagogía, aportando iniciativas sobre cuestiones relativas a la inmigración, sus desafíos y respuestas aun pendientes. Debatieron cuestiones tan variadas como Inmigración, retos en la comunicación entre diferentes comunidades, Desigualdades y discriminación a través de la Normativa de extranjería, los Procesos de exclusión social de la población inmigrante, la Asistencia a inmigrantes, la Mediación y la interculturalidad, algunos aspectos SocioPolíticos relativos a los derechos en la legislación, la Ética del mediador en los contextos interculturales, Políticas públicas, la acción social y mujeres inmigrantes: los modelos de intervención. las Políticas de inmigración y control de flujos migratorios, la participación y la ciudadanía, la cuestiones de género en las Políticas de Inmigración, el impacto de estas, las Leyes de Extranjería más humanitarias. El desplazamiento de inmigrantes, jóvenes principalmente, hacia los países desarrollados es un fenómeno universal, de gran actualidad y de cuantía creciente en nuestra área geopolítica europea. Emigrar forma parte del afrontamiento contra las desigualdades y el desequilibrio, necesitando establecerse en otros lugares.

Constitutional Reconstruction in Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan 28 - 29 April 2005 The workshop organized by Said Arjomand (SUNY, Stony Brook and Princeton University) and Dicle Kogacioglu (Sabanci University, Istanbul) brought together scholars whose papers focused on a number of themes that are key for understanding processes of political reconstruction in Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan. Linda Darling covered the historical background, while Nathan Brown offered a comparative analysis of the Middle Eastern process of constitution-making. The two papers on human rights by Ann Mayer and Karima Bennoune were thematic, while those by Andrew Arato, Said Arjomand, Dicle Kogacioglu, Saad Hamid (who could unfortunately not be with us because of difficult connections between Kabul and Bilbao), Barnett Rubin and Hootan Shambayati, though implicitly or explicitly comparative, were case studies of one of the four countries. The discussion focused on the historical making of constitutionalism in the comparative context of the Middle East, political and cultural foundations that may have shaped the form that constitutionalism(s) have taken, the effects of international actors, institutions, and processes in relation to different types of national elites, the political and legal effects of Islamist movements and of various ways in which ‘Islam’ as such appears in constitutional texts. The enthusiasm of the participants has led Said Arjomand to take on the role of editor for a book to be submitted to IISL this summer.

WORKSHOPS

The Legal Complex and Political Liberalism 2 – 6 May 2005 Convened by Terence Halliday (American Bar Foundation), Lucien Karpik (Ecoles des Mines, Paris) and Malcolm Feeley (University of California, Berkeley), scholars from mature and developing democracies met to advance comparatively and theoretically the scholarship on lawyers’ involvement in the advance towards and defense of political liberalism. The Workshop defined political liberalism in terms of a moderate state, civil society, and the core rights of citizenship (e.g., the basic freedoms of speech, movement, association, due process, property rights, etc.). The workshop examined the role of the legal complex (i.e., professions with legal qualifications, such as lawyers, judges and legal academics) who mobilize on behalf of change in the advance or retreat of political liberalism in four historical contexts: (1) countries where political liberalism was or may now be under construction de novo (e.g., Franco’s Spain, Turkey, Korea, Taiwan, China); (2) countries that recovered political liberalism from an earlier period (Hungary, Chile); (3) countries where some foundations of political liberalism may have been lay down during colonial eras (e.g. Hong Kong, Egypt, Latin America); and (4) mature democracies that demonstrate their vulnerabilities when confronted with terrorism, organized crime, and the like (France, Italy, U.S., Israel).

El Estado de los Sistemas de Justicia en Centroamérica: Un Balance de 20 años de Reformas 12 – 13 Mayo 2005 Los días 12 y 13 de mayo de 2005, el Instituto Internacional de Sociología Jurídica de Oñati celebró el Workshop “El estado de los sistemas de justicia en Centroamérica: un balance de 20 años de reformas” en el que participaron diferentes académicos, investigadores y funcionarios procedentes del Instituto Interuniversitario de Estudios de Iberoamérica y Portugal (Universidad de Salamanca), del Área de Ciencia Política y de la Administración (Universidad de Salamanca), del Instituto Europeo de Florencia (Italia), del Instituto de Estudios Comparados en Ciencias Penales (Guatemala) de la Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional (AECI) del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID) y del Programa de Naciones Unidas al Desarrollo (PNUD). La finalidad del Workshop fue una evaluación de las distintas agendas de reforma judicial en los países del istmo centroamericano, en términos de independencia judicial, acceso a la justicia, el papel de los organismos de cooperación internacional, y las dificultades teóricas y metodológicas de definición y medición de los conceptos que caracterizan a un rendimiento ideal de Sistema de Administración de Justicia

RESIDENCE GRANTS / BECAS DE RESIDENCIA

COMENTARIOS DE ALGUNAS PERSONAS A LAS QUE SE LES CONCEDIÓ LA BECA DE RESIDENCIA2004-2005 COMMENTS OF SOME VISITORS WHO WERE AWARDED THE RESIDENCE GRANT 2004-2005 Solicitudes / Applications 2006-2007: http://www.iisj.es

YDIL AYBARS (Northern Ireland) 2 November 2004 - 2 February 2005 I have stayed at the IISJ during three months between November 2004 and February 2005 as a Residence Grant holder. My objective in applying for this grant was to carry out part of my PhD project on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men in Employment in the European Union (EU). This project compares four EU Member States, one of which is Spain, in terms of their social policy structures and their conceptualisations of gender equality in general, with a view to questioning whether or not the increasing EU presence in the field of gender equality leads to a gradual erosion of the boundaries between the different welfare systems of the EU Member States. It is thus an attempt to explore the socio-legal aspects of European integration, as opposed to its economic and political aspects, which have been much more widely discussed. In this regard, the starting point of my study is the now classical typology of four different welfare regimes within Western Europe, namely, Liberal/Anglo-Saxon, Continental/Conservative, Scandinavian/Social-democratic, and Mediterranean types. Spain has been selected as the country exemplifying this latter, Mediterranean, or Southern, type. This Residence Grant provided me with an excellent opportunity to begin my actual research process, after a year of intensive literature review, in one of the most peculiar and characteristic examples of the Southern welfare regimes. By offering a wide range of library resources both in English and in Spanish on the related topics, it has certainly broadened my outlook on the particular case of Spain. It is of utmost significance for a comparative researcher to be able to access the documents written in the native language of the country under consideration. Here, the first point I should thus stress is the opportunity offered to me through this Grant to be able to access many articles on this issue in the IISJ library, which offers immense resources on socio-legal topics. Secondly, as part of my research, I had the chance to interview a number of key informants, i.e. academicians working on the issue, in Spain, and the location of Oñati and transport facilities have helped a lot when I realised daily travels to other cities. This opportunity, again, would never be possible if I did not have the chance to spend three months here. Overall, then, the research period I have spent at the IISJ has been invaluable for the future of my project.

MERCEDES CALZADO (Argentina) 3 - 29 Enero 2005 El trabajo de investigación bibliográfica en el IISJ se inscribe en el proyecto de investigación en torno a las significaciones sociales de la noción de inseguridad urbana. La búsqueda en el Centro de Documentación resultó una herramienta fundamental para fortalecer el contenido teórico y metodológico del proyecto y la futura tesis de maestría, así como el aporte de otras experiencias de análisis en la problemática de la construcción mediática de la sensación de inseguridad a trabajos de investigación grupales en el ámbito del Instituto de Investigaciones Gino Germani de la Facultad de Ciencias Sociales de la Universidad de Buenos Aires. El Centro de Documentación se encuentra organizado de manera interdisciplinaria y eso fue de gran utilidad para conocer con más detalles las diversas miradas, abordajes epistemológicos, teóricos y metodológicos en torno al tratamiento mediático de la inseguridad y a la construcción social de dicha percepción. En este sentido considero que conocer investigaciones de grupos de trabajo de otros contextos sociales sobre el mismo tópico, amplió mis márgenes de abordaje del novedoso modo de construcción del delito en tanto inseguridad y los modos de categorización de la figura del delincuente, ambos en tanto construcciones significantes. La dificultad de encontrar la gran mayoría de estas investigaciones en los centros de documentación argentinos, le da una mayor relevancia a la investigación bibliográfica realizada en Oñati. En este sentido, se han cumplido los objetivos principales de la estadía en El IISJ ya que he podido relevar gran parte de la bibliografía referida al binomio “seguridad-comunicación” para que luego ésta se inserte en el contexto de investigación local. La bibliografía trabajada y recolectada se vincula tanto al modo de construcción mediática de la idea de inseguridad, como a los modos de generación histórica de lo real en distintos escenarios sociales. Es importante señalar brevemente que el trabajo sobre mi tema particular en el Centro de Documentación se enriqueció a partir del intercambio de experiencias de investigación con los estudiantes de la maestría del IISJ. La posibilidad de conocer trabajos y proyectos de investigación realizados por estudiantes de contextos sociales y políticos tan diversos como los que existen en la cohorte, fue de gran utilidad para reflexionar sobre mi propio objeto de estudio a partir de miradas de distintos intereses, disciplinas y escenarios locales.

RESIDENCE GRANTS / BECAS DE RESIDENCIA

AUGUSTINE PARK (Canada) 13 January - 28 March 2005 The International Institute for the Sociology of Law has been an excellent space for writing and researching for my dissertation, offering a unique space for contemplation. Situated in the beautiful mountain town of Onati, the Institute has been an invaluable part of my intellectual development. The Library provides remarkable resources for graduate students and faculty, offering both depth and breadth in key sociolegal fields of inquiry. The Library is strong in theoretical, methodological and substantive resources, and has allowed me to develop existing interests while growing new curiosities. During my stay I spent virtually every day in the Library, and shall miss my desk! However, it was not the Library alone that contributed to my intellectual growth while in Onati. Rather, my experience of the town was also important. In addition to its considerable beauty – nestled among green and jagged mountains with a creek winding around the town’s venerable, antique buildings – Onati is a culturally and politically fascinating town, and is a mere stone’s throw (well, bus ride) away from other Basque jewels. The three months I spent in Onati were devoted to research on various aspects of my research, and I took particular advantage of the considerable wealth of children’s rights, postconflict, restorative justice, and reconciliation literatures. Many thanks to the IISL, the Scientific Director (Volkmar Gessner), Malen and the other staff, who have been so kind and helpful.

SANNA HYTTINEN (Finland) 1 - 23 March 2005 First of all, I would like to thank Scientific Director professor Volkmar Gessner and the International Institute for the Sociology of Law for awarding me the residence grant that enabled my visit to Oñati. Second, I would like to thank the library staff for their kind help especially in getting books from other libraries. Special thanks are due to Malen Gordoa Mendizabal who not only helped me with my travel arrangements but let me know about the residence grant in the first place. My research deals with the justiciability of economic and social rights. Even though it is a rather juridical topic, the research has several aspects with which the materials of the IISL Library are of great help. The Institute library had enlarged greatly since the time I did the Master’s programme in 1996-1997. I had done some database searches via the Internet already in Finland, but still I was able to find more material than what I was expecting. First, I was able to find Spanish materials, both books and articles that deal specifically with my research topic. Second, the library proved to be helpful also with regard to one of the main contestations concerning the justiciability of economic and social rights - the practicability of judicial protection. Third, the so-called principle of progressive realisation means that when it comes to the determination of the content of and to the interpretation of economic and social rights human rights indicators and benchmarks plays a significant role. In this regard I found valuable materials concerning e.g. statistics and their role in judicial decision-making. Fourth, every research has to be placed into a more general context.

MASTER'S

Master’s Courses 2005-2006 Francisco Javier Caballero, Iker Barbero (defending thesis) Volkmar Gessner & Pedro Ibarra.

Joxerramon Bengoetxea, Oñati, UPV, & Volkmar Gessner, Oñati, Bremen (3 – 7 October) Comparative Law and Legal Cultures Reza Banakar UK (10 - 21 October 2005) Introduction to the Sociology of Law This course introduces some the important theoretical and empirical developments within the sociology of law by exploring three interrelated themes. It explores how sociologists have used law to study the distinctive features of modernity, postmodernity and globalised conditions; it examines how policymakers have viewed and employed law to regulate behaviour and social developments; and finally it examines how sociology has been used as part of an attempt to transform law, legal education and legal research. Angela Melville, UK (24 October - 11 November 2005) Socio-Legal Research: Theory and Practice This course will critically evaluate the relationship between law and society through the application of socio-legal theory and methods. Students will examine the theoretical underpinnings of socio-legal research, including the differences between quantitative and qualitative research. They will also develop an understanding of the variety of approaches and methods used in socio-legal research. This understanding will be underpinned by an examination of the methods, findings and implications of a range of socio-legal research projects that examine the role of legal institutes in society. Ben Sloot, Netherland (14 - 25 November 2005) The Sociology and Politics of Affirmative Action This is a very tentative outline of the topics I would be dealing with. Obviously, it will have to be furnished with relevant sociological literature. Compared to the ocean of literature about the normative bases of affirmative action, there is however only a limited body of empirical studies about this subject. Yet the emphasis in this course will fall on empirical sociological studies and theories. Mikael Madsen, Denmark & Antoine Vauchez, France (28 November - 9 December 2005) The Production of International Legal Fields: Theoretical and Empirical Approaches The course seeks to explore the complex relationship between State, legal orders and international centers of law production with a

starting-point in extensive empirical studies of the production of international legal fields conducted in recent years. The focus will particularly be on the processes taking place at the crossroads of transnational networks, local and international power struggles, as well as the impact of the entrepreneurship of individual actors or collective entities. Badrinath Rao, India (12 - 23 December 2005) The Sociology of Law in South Asia The objectives of this course are as follows: To provide a broad overview of the complex interplay of social structures and legal institutions in the countries of South Asia. To offer a nuanced analysis of the impact of socio-economic, political, and cultural forces and structures on the institutionalization of the rule of law in post-colonial South Asia. To explore the peculiarities of jurisprudence and the unique challenges involved in the dispensation of justice in societies where traditions of canonical laws and modern legal sensibilities are often at variance with each other. Sergio López Ayllon, Mexico (9 - 20 January 2006) Constructing and Implementing Public Policy and Regulation Jeremy Sarkin. South Africa (23 January - 3 February 2006) Transitional Justice Transitions from repressive rule to democracy have become a worldwide phenomenon. In most cases, the displaced regimes were characterized by massive violations of human rights. All countries in transition have to solve similar problems: should or must they punish human rights violations committed under old order? Is an amnesty perishable and necessary in the interest of peace and inner unity? Does society need an official accounting and acknowledgement of the wrongs of the past? Issi Rosen-Zvi, Israel (6 - 17 February 2006) Law, Space and Society At the center of the course lies the question of the relationship between the space we live in – the material, the social and the mental – and our legal system. Does space construct the law, is it constructed by the law, or maybe they shape each other. Philosophical, sociological, and political theories, as well as city planning schemes were developed in order to understand the way space influences both the human subject and its social forms of organization.

MASTER'S

Terence C. Halliday, USA (20 February - 3 March 2006) Law, Markets and Globalization This course examines law in the context of recent economic and social trends (dubbed “globalization”) which have increasingly integrated the world’s social and economic systems. Globalization occurs as international flows of capital, goods, services, and people increase. These flows are sustained and regulated by an institutional foundation that typically centers on the legal system. As part of globalization, particular legal and institutional forms are also spreading throughout the world. Heike Jung, Germany (6 - 17 March 2006) Judges and Decision Making - An Intercultural Comparison Judges have for long been on the agenda of scholarly interest. In particular, judicial discretion, the recruiting of judges, lay participation or, more generally, the impact of the different procedures on the

position of the judge have been a matter of discussion and also a subject of empirical studies. In the mean-time, new issues have come up and call for a re-appraisal of the role of judges and the judiciary, namely the political role of the judge, questions of evaluation and accountability as well as of alternatives to traditional forms of litigation. Maureen Cain, UK, (21 - 31 March) Crime and Globalisation Juan Ignacio Ugartemendía & Maite Zelaia, UPV (14 November - 31 March) Legal and Political Institutions of the Basque Country and Spain in the EU context (Wednesday Optional Afternoon Course)

LIBRARY / BIBLIOTECA

Library and Documentation Centre

Biblioteca y Centro de Documentación

The IISL library and documentation centre are now well established as one of the key reference sources for sociology of law researchers.

La biblioteca y el centro de documentación del IISJ se han consolidado como una de las fuentes de referencia de la comunidad de investigadores de la sociología del derecho.

The number of guest lecturers, Master’s course students, postgraduate students, doctorate students and researchers who visit us is increasing year by year. Similarly, the number of different countries from which these visitors come is also growing steadily, and now encompasses all five continents.

El número de profesores visitantes, alumnos del Master, estudiantes de postgrado, doctorandos e investigadores que nos visitan se mantiene en un crecimiento sostenido. Igualmente, los países de procedencia se han ido diversificando hasta alcanzar los cinco continentes.

The fact that it is now possible to consult the bibliographical databases over the Internet, through the link www.iisj.es/bdiisj, has contributed noticeably to ensuring that visitors are already familiar with our library resources prior to their arrival in Oñati.

El hecho de que la consulta a las bases de datos bibliográficas ya esté accesible en el enlace www.iisj.es/bdiisj , ha contribuido de manera notable a que los usuarios que nos visitan ya conozcan de antemano nuestros fondos.

Currently, the number of books and documents available in the library totals over 14,000. A concerted effort has been made to increase the diversity of the collection, as regards both country of origin and the geographical area on which new acquisitions focus, always within the framework of sociology of law.

Actualmente, el número de ejemplares disponibles en la biblioteca ascienden a más de 14.000 monografías. Se ha hecho un esfuerzo en aumentar la diversidad tanto del país de origen como del ámbito geográfico del que se ocupan las nuevas adquisiciones, siempre dentro del foco de interés de la sociología del derecho.

As regards periodicals, two hundred publications are received on a regular basis. We have complete collections of the twenty or so specialist sociology of law magazines, as well as those relating to the most important sister disciplines. A list of magazine collections which focus mainly on sociology of law is available on the IISL’s website, through the library link ‘user services’.

En cuanto a las publicaciones periódicas, se reciben de manera regular doscientos títulos. Disponemos de las colecciones completas de la veintena de revistas especializadas en sociología del derecho, y de las más relevantes de las disciplinas relacionadas. El listado de las colecciones de revistas cuyo tema central es la sociología del derecho están accesibles en la página web del IISJ, en el enlace de la biblioteca “servicios a usuarios”.

This increase in the library’s resources has inevitably led to the current problem of lack of space, a problem we hope to resolve in the medium term by setting up new storage rooms.

Este crecimiento de los fondos bibliográficos ha conducido de manera inevitable al actual problema de espacio, que esperamos poder resolver a medio plazo con el acondicionamiento de nuevas salas de depósito.

We are currently in the process of inventorying and transferring part of the resources to a new room. The collection of grey literature or unpublished material that has been scanned has been saved in digital format only, a decision which has freed up space in our rooms for monographs from some of the specialist theme-based sections of our library.

Actualmente nos hallamos en pleno proceso de inventario y simultáneamente de traslado de parte de los fondos a una nueva sala de depósito. La colección de literatura gris o material no publicado, que se ha escaneado, ha pasado a guardarse sólo en formato digital. Esta medida ha liberado espacio en nuestras salas para acoger a las monografías de algunas de las secciones de la clasificación temática especializada que utiliza la biblioteca.

PUBLICATIONS / PUBLICACIONES

Healing the Wounds. Essays on the Reconstruction of Societies after War Eds. Marie-Claire Foblets & Trutz von Trotta In recent decades the world has experienced the rise of so-called “law intensity conflicts”. Unlike conventional wars these very bloody armed conflicts are no longer the affairs of state governments and their armies. In their place appear police-like armed units, security services and secret services, and bands of mercenaries. For the practice of peace, this kind of war has far-reaching consequences. The authors examine various paths to peace and reconciliation in low intensity conflicts. The articles shed new light not only on ways and chances of interventions by the international community but also on the role of nongovernmental organisations in violent conflicts.

Imaginary Boundaries of Justice. Social and Legal Justice across Disciplines Ed. Ronnie Lippens It has become increasingly difficult to grasp the notion of social or legal justice in an age when words have left their moorings. Perhaps images are more stable that words; maybe images and imagery possess a certain viscosity, even a sensory quality, which prevents them from evaporating. This “maybe” is what this book is about. The contributors to this collection explore the issue of how the imaginary has a role in the productions and reproduction of “visions” of legal and social justice. It argues that “visions” of justice are inevitably bounded. The book captures an emerging interest in images and the visual, or the Imaginary more broadly. 15 Oñati-IISL Newsletter – 19 – 2005 Read our Web Page – http://www.iisj.es


PUBLICATIONS / PUBLICACIONES

Proyección social del derecho y clínicas jurídicas en las Universidades de América del siglo XXI Ed. Antonio Peña Jumpa El conjunto de trabajos del presente libro presenta una variedad de temas de debate como: ¿Qué se entiende por proyección social del derecho? ¿Qué se entiende por clínica jurídica? ¿Cuál es la relación entre la proyección social del derecho y las clínicas jurídicas? ¿Cuál es su relación con la formación del abogado y su perfil profesional? ¿Cuál es la relación con las instituciones del Estado? Estos encuentros ayudan a afianzar redes y alianzas que deben ser profundizadas. Conocer y compartir las experiencias de los diferentes países y universidades de América y otros continentes puede ayudar a obtener respuestas más seguras a las anteriores interrogantes.

Igualdad de oportunidades e igualdad de género: Una relación a debate Eds. Mª Angeles Barrère & Arantza Campos En este libro se abre el debate sobre el papel desempeñado por el Derecho en el logro de la igualdad de género. Se analiza el binomio subjetividadciudadanía para la consecución del igualitarismo. Se contempla asimismo el papel de las acciones positivas y las cuotas de mujeres en cargos de representación política. Se analizan también la transversalidad de género, el asunto de la prostitución, tema polémico dentro de feminismo, la discriminación institucional, la incidencia de los medios de comunicación en la igualdad, y como broche final, la aportación de la figura de “Agente para la igualdad de oportunidades”.
