Opening: Centre on Law and Social Transformation


The Centre on Law & Social Transformation aims to be a dynamo for interdisciplinary research on the potential and limits of law as an instrument of social change: stimulating research in Bergen; fostering a dynamic academic environment for socio-legal studies in Norway; and serving as the hub of a virtual global centre. The Centre is a joint initiative by the Chr. Michelsen Institute and the University of Bergen (Comparative Politics), but with participating researchers from across the academic institutions in Bergen as well as Global Fellows.
