Cultural and Linguistic Diversity (CALD) Reception
This reception is an opportunity to bring together ICON-S members who support CALD. We want to discuss the importance of cultural and linguistic diversity to the success of ICON-S, and to brainstorm how ICON-S can better promote it. We will have a group discussion to allow ICON-S Members to get to know one another and to exchange views on cultural and linguistic diversity in the academic world. The topics for discussion include how to better collaborate across linguistic barriers, finding new ways of transcending our tendency to focus on a relatively narrow range of jurisdictional comparisons, and whether a culturally sensitive approach to public law may require paying more attention to the perspectives of professionals and political and social leaders outside the academic sphere.
