THE SOCIOLOGY OF JUSTICE
5-7 October 2017 | University of the Philippines Cebu
The Philippine Sociological Society’s Annual conference invites paper presentations on all topics related to sociological research. The conference is open to academics, practitioners, and graduate students. Exceptional undergraduate students may also submit an abstract.
The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Sociology of Justice.’ The idea of justice has been at the heart of sociological investigation since the discipline’s inception. From Marx’s conceptualization of fair distribution of the proceeds of labor to contemporary research that examines the structural biases in the criminal justice system, sociologists have been at the forefront of interrogating the social currents that underpin the delivery as well as miscarriage of justice.
