Abstract

This special issue of the Journal of Romanian Studies examines law as a social institution and the ways in which it intersects with the larger social, historical, political and economic world. The articles included here mostly explore the intersections between law, history, and justice, reject positivist and doctrinal analyses of law, and focus on “living law” and the complex interactions between law and social issues, including how law is created, interpreted and implemented, and how individuals and organizations live, shape and evade it in everyday interactions within and outside of the state. We bring together scholars from several disciplines in humanities and social sciences, including anthropology, comparative literature, history, political science, socio-legal studies, and sociology. Regardless of their academic field, the contributors engage in interdisciplinary studies of “law in action” located in various historical settings and different types of political regimes.
