Dec. 3, 2021 - Justice Caught Between ‘Being’ and ‘Having’

The 2021 TIJRJ Annual Lecture 

Justice Caught Between ‘Being’ and ‘Having’ 

An ERJF Event

Contemporary justice draws its dynamism from the tensions and contradictions between teleology and deontology, intuitions and formalisation, totality and parties, being and having.

On Friday December 3 the 2021 Annual Lecture of The International Journal of Restorative Justice will be held online.

When: Friday December 3, 2021 (7:00am-9:00am PST; 9:00-11:00am CST; 10:00am-12:00pm EST)

Registration: Click here to register for this event.
The event is free but registration is mandatory. The deadline for registration is December 1. The Zoom link for the event will be sent on December 2.

Annual Lecturer: Antoine Garapon (Sciences Po Law School, Paris, France)
Respondents: Claudia Mazzucato (Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy) & Kent Roach (University of Toronto, Canada)
Event Chair: Estelle Zinsstag
Introductions: Ivo Aertsen

The lecture and responses will be in English.

Abstract: Recognition, dignity, empowerment, reconciliation, respect: restorative justice’s vocabulary makes more reference to being than to having. In that sense, it seems to reverse a long history of justice that is wary of anything that has to do with ontology (think of the theory of the born criminal). In Athens as well as in Rome, courts appeared at the same time as currencies: the two went together. Unlike the magical thinking of myths, modern justice has opposed the reason of logos; it has broken down the culture of the group as a whole into individual rights, and has preferred figures to ritual forms. Good justice needs precise forms, strict interpretations, and reliable measures, as do liberties. This new concern for being does not undo this long history but rather enhances it; it focuses on ‘repairing’ the lives of human beings, social bonds, political covenants, or even nature - entities that no longer can be adequately grasped by economy, rights, or data.

Biography: Born in 1952, Antoine Garapon served as a juvenile judge for many years and now teaches at Sciences Po Law School (Paris). He has written widely on judicial issues, legal philosophy, and comparative legal cultures, including Bien juger: Essai sur le rituel judiciaire (1996) (with Ioannis Papadopoulos) and Juger en Amérique et en France: Culture juridique française et Common Law (2003) both published by Odile Jacob. His latest book (with Jean Lassègue) is entitled Justice digitale : Révolution graphique et rupture anthropologique (PUF, 2018). He is on the editorial board of the academic journal Esprit and holds a weekly radio programme (Esprit de justice) on France-culture.
