Stop. Embrace reality. Why let other people form your opinion about life, people, and places? Experience. Absorb. Analyse. Share.
This is exactly what we have done in studying the constitutional law of different countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Egypt, Ghana, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Russia. We challenged the established stereotypes held by others. We went ‘into the field’ to form our own experience.
These images go beyond the zeitgeist and tell stories that we hope you want to share.
This event is a part of ESCR Festival of Social Science (Manchester 5-12 November 2016). It will comprise an exhibition of photographs took by the researchers of the project ‘A Sociology of the Transnational Constitutions’ during their field trips. The project focuses on understanding the profound institutional and behavioural change caused by acceptance of international law in all these countries.
The photographs will be accompanied by a short talk on the 9th of November by each of the researchers connecting the awe-inspiring images with their experience in these countries and with the conclusions that they have reached through observations and interviews.
