About Us

Law and Global Justice at Durham (LGJD), a research cluster based in Durham Law School, provides a forum for the development and dissemination of legal research with an international, transnational, or global dimension.

It also provides a home for inter-disciplinary or multi-disciplinary research that relates to wider debates over global justice. The cluster, primarily composed of academics and postgraduate researchers within Durham Law School, is increasingly expanding to include participants from across the University whose research and scholarship has a global dimension and touches on the role of law on that global plane.

Human life after contact with extraterrestrial civilisations - Call for contributions to an edited book (Routledge Publishing)

How will humanity react to contact with an alien civilisation? How would different types of contact affect us? How would humans live with such a new reality? Contact, or even life with another intelligent species, would have ramifications into all areas of human life, such as, for example politics and governance, defence, law, religion, philosophy, sociology, psychology, communication and linguistics, arts and literature, and technology, to name but a few.
