About this lecture:

‘Law and development’ is a field of inquiry and practice of ever-greater significance and ever-diminishing coherence, for which, I will argue, economic sociology offers a possible lifeboat. The substantive focus of the field is best defined, and that substance is best approached, using the analytical, empirical and normative components of economic sociology. However, plenty of law and development work has been, and will continue to be, done using other approaches. So an economic sociology of law and development will probably only become seaworthy once it is communicated in an open source visual form.'
