Abstract

This special dossier is the result of a Law and Narrative Workshop which took place at the University of Lucerne in the context of the IVR World Congress 2019. It collects papers of law and humanities scholars coming from Australia, Brazil, Holland, Italy, Switzerland and the United States. The authors apply in creative ways the lens of narrative to investigate the broader IVR theme of the relations between dignity, democracy and diversity, by reinforcing our conviction that nowadays ‘narrative’ should be considered not only a critical tool and means to interpret legal texts, but also a significant legal category that plays a crucial role in the processes of legal adjudication, case resolution, and social inclusion and exclusion.
