Constitutions of Value

This symposium presents the beginnings and first fruits of a transdisciplinary research project on the legal constitutions of value. It takes a view of value not as exogenous to law and society, not as something to be identified, promoted and protected by law. Rather, the contributions to this symposium examine the ways in which value is (co-)constituted, structured and shaped by law, together with politics, economics, science and technology. We thus hope to advance the understanding of how legally co-constituted value and value practices make and unmake society, and how as lawyers we can put that knowledge to work for change.
