Call for Proposals: The 2022 GAJE conference - "Justice Education: Building Resilience and Strong Connections in Times of Global Challenges”


The world continues to face unprecedented multiple challenges linked to war, health crises, climate change and economic, social and political instabilities, which are also deeply affecting education and the production of knowledge.

In these times, socially relevant justice education becomes even more important. Not only because of its potential to confront crucial practical legal problems societies face and to find innovative responses to them, but also to build-up resilient societies able to overcome the multiple challenges.

This conference, organised in partnership between the Global Alliance for Justice Education, the International Journal of Clinical Legal Education, the South African University Law Clinics Association and the Faculty of Law of the University of Stellenbosch will provide a platform to discuss the current challenges and how resilience can be built-up within society. It offers (in person and online) an important forum for making strong connections with and being inspired by a broad diversity of legal justice educators from all over the world. It provides a unique platform for sharing innovative approaches and research on educational methods promoting students’ engagement, diversity and social justice.
