Making rules, breaking rules: Law, Crime and Society

The Heidelberg Research Center for Law, Society and Institutions (HCLSI) will hold its first public conference to present and discuss results of ongoing and recent projects by senior and junior researchers who are affiliated with the research center.

The fundamental question of the link between rule making on the one hand, and rule breaking by individuals and organizations on the other hand will be at the center of the full-day conference program. In line with the central aim of the HCLSI, the program brings together law, sociology, political science, economics and psychology in order to gain new insights from interdisciplinary dialogue.

Please feel invited to join us in person. Registration via e-mail ( until 23 June is required for personal attendance.
