The creation and enforcement of law and the maintenance of social order are key concerns for states, societies, and individuals across Africa. However, the way in which these terms are defined, realised, and justified shifts across time and place. In our conference we will be unearthing some of the contestation that surrounds these shifts, and the consequences of that contestation.
