Abstract

This article introduces a series of papers prepared for the “2016 Law and Development Conference: From the Global South Perspectives,” held in Buenos Aires, Argentina and co-sponsored by Universidad Austral, the Law and Development Institute and the Inter-American Development Bank’s Institute for the Integration of Latin America and the Caribbean (INTAL). The introduction aims to show one of the major contributions from the law and development field of study: scholars reveal the frequent disconnection between law and development; then, by uncovering contextual factors and proposing innovative solutions, they reconnect law with development. This provides an important support for the adoption of national development policies and the implementation of international development projects. Over forty years after the seminal paper by Trubek and Galanter, scholars are no longer in self-estrangement. The papers presented in the Special Issue illustrate this point.

Keywords: law and development, law and development field of study
