Airlangga Summer School

2022 AOSS : Law, Multiculturalism and Rights

About

The massive flow of migrants and refugees, ongoing economic hardship, the surge in terrorism and violent extremism on our countries, are placing pressure on our communities. In many places populism and xenophobia are on the rise and our commitment to tolerance and diversity is feeling the strain.

One particularly difficult challenge is guaranteeing freedom of expression and the right to express ideas which “offend, shock or disturb” while preventing incitement to hate or violence that is aimed at individuals or groups on the basis of their traditions or beliefs. We see many States grappling with this dilemma. It is a troubling development, and one we cannot ignore.

Diversity is an asset to our countries – economically, socially and politically – and we must defend it. However, managing cultural diversity in full respect of the principles of democracy, human rights and the rule of law is a common challenge for all societies across the regions.

Through multiculturalism, the consequences of cultural diversity are managed in the interests of the individual and society as a whole. It includes cultural identity, social justice, and economic efficiency. The subject of multiculturalism itself has gained a great deal of attention in the global scenario in the past few years. Along with the phenomenon of globalization, it has assumed a role of highlighted relevance in a world without borders.

The 2nd Airlangga On/Offline Summer School focuses on multicultural dimensions across the nations. Through the thematic approach, the course introduces students to the themes of legal pluralism, religion and culture, minority rights, the criminal law and multiculturalism.

The instructors of this Summer School Program are the legal experts and practitioners across Asia, Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States.

2021 AOSS : Law and Diversity in Asia

About

Asia is a region rich with diverse populations, where history, politics, religion and the legal landscape provide unique experiences and practices. In terms of religion, the state’s approach towards socially engineering religion, particularly Islam oscillates among appropriation, accommodation, control and subjugation of Islam in different political and legal frameworks. Thus, the striking feature of Asian legal systems, besides legal pluralism, is legal instrumentalism, the use of law as a tool for social engineering, specifically, but not exclusively, in the economic sphere.

Our goal is to train students to become world-class lawyers, able to transition from one legal system to another, bridging the gap between civil law and common law systems. The program is for undergraduate students from various countries who wish to learn Indonesian Law and to deepen their understanding of the laws of various Asian countries, particularly in Southeast Asian and South Asian region. The course offered in this program will provide an opportunity to reveal the unique experiences of legal development in Asia region. The program is uniquely prepared the students for facing the complexities of global society and adept at navigating legal and cultural norms of the Asia.
