Why a new research profile for the department of Historical Regimes of Normativity?

The department „Historical Regimes of Normativity” has restructered its research profile. The well established research fields “Special Legal Orders” and “Doing Legal History” will be accompanied by new research fields that concentrate on three specific aspects of the history of law: the production and the glocalization of knowledge of normativity and knowledge of normativity from the sphere of the religious.

From 12 until 16 June, 15 scholars of Chinese law from China, Europe and the United States followed the invitation of the Max Planck Institute for Legal History and Legal Theory (mpilhlt) to participate in the first of what is meant to be a series of workshops on Chinese legal tradition.
