This workshop is jointly organized by the Inter-Asia Engagements and the Asian Urbanisms Clusters at the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore.
This workshop will consider the contemporary realities and historical foundations that legal systems and cultures are built upon in Asia. It responds to a conundrum that entails the reconceptualization of Asia as a set of interconnected processes: as borders are being crossed more easily than ever before, abetted by technological advancements in digital infrastructure, local legal regimes and actors continue to maintain their socio-political and territorial resonance. We time this workshop at the moment when the globe is bouncing back from a health pandemic and restrictions on travel has shaken the assumptions of a globalized world. It is thus a useful juncture to pause and reflect upon transnational legalities and governance structures, which have been disrupted, but remain in effect across the Asian region (see, for example, Ho, 2017; Kingsley, 2021).
