This workshop seeks to bring together new perspectives on this paradox: are major social and political innovations achieved through law or through more ‘organic’ changes in social practice framed as custom, and how do law and custom interact in processes of innovation? Themes for contributions could relate to (but are not limited to): legal codification of social practice; the normative force of (evolving) customs; anchoring of social/political/economic change or innovation to law or custom; and legislation as ‘social engineering’ and its success or failure.
