    • Public Perceptions of Crime: Concepts, Surveys and Future Directions in Research

      28 October
      Worries and anxieties associated with the fear of crime are believed to erode quality of life and well-being, erode confidence in the police, restrict social movement, motivate costly - but not necessarily beneficial - precautions, and encourage ‘flight’ from deprived areas.

    • Food Governance Conference

      1 November to 3 November
      Co-hosted by Sydney Law School and the Charles Perkins Centre, Food Governance explores the role of law, regulation, and policy in promoting food security and safety, as well as in improving nutrition and preventing obesity and non-communicable diseases.

    • JSI Seminar Series: The Phenomenological Presupposition of Law

      10 November
      The Phenomenology of Law (Rechtsphänomenologie) seems an entirely forgotten branch of legal philosophy. Dr De Leeuw’s paper aims to revive this tradition by showing that law as a normative regulatory structure presupposes a logical foundation, simultaneously law also - as an institution representing the social bond - presupposes a particular a priori ontology of the intersubjective experience of our “being with others”. He will particularly engage with the work of Husserl, Ricoeur and Levinas.
