Legal pluralism, the coexistence of multiple legal systems within a single society or jurisdiction, is a defining characteristic of many Asian countries. Rooted in diverse cultural, historical, and religious traditions, this complex legal landscape presents a myriad of contemporary legal issues. From the interplay between religious laws and secular statutes to the tensions arising from colonial legacies and indigenous customary practices, Asia grapples with a range of challenges at the intersection of tradition and modernity.

The 4th Airlangga International Summer School focuses on Legal Pluralism and Contemporary Legal Issues in Asia. This summer school provides a glimpse into the multifaceted nature of legal pluralism in Asia and sets the stage for a deeper exploration of its impact on governance, human rights, and legal reform in the region. Through the thematic approach, the course introduces students to the themes of:

  1. Legal Pluralism in SEA
  2. Legal Transplant and Legitimacy in Contemporary Asia
  3. Human Rights Law in SEA
  4. Transnational Organized Crime in SEA
  5. Private Law, Competition Law and Justice
