Workshop: “Objectives and Methods of a Contextual Analysis in Comparative Law”

Konrad Lachmayer organised a workshop on “Objectives and Methods of a Contextual Analysis in Comparative Law” at the Hungarian Academy of Social Sciences, Budapest, on May 19, 2016. See the Programme …

The recent debates on methodology of comparative law are focussing on the clash of different approaches towards legal comparison (e.g. hermeneutical, legal, empirical, functional, postmodern etc). It is, however, remarkable that all kind of methods in comparative law claim to use contextual knowledge, which goes beyond pure legal knowledge. Although the claim and the necessity to open up towards interdisciplinary approaches seems to be uncontested, it is remarkable that the concrete methodologies, how to analyse contextual knowledge typically remains unclear.
