Coordenadores Globais Temáticos
Para viabilizar a cobertura abrangente de todas as dimensões – tanto teóricas como práticas – da problemática do acesso à justiça, o Global Access to Justice Project também possui Coordenadores Globais Temáticos responsáveis pela análise aprofundada das novas e emergentes tendências do movimento de acesso à justiça. Atualmente, a coordenação do projeto identifica 10 temas-chave (sujeitos ao refinamento futuro pelos próprios participantes do projeto):
Over the past twenty years, Dr. phil. habil. Martin Ramstedt has worked as (senior) researcher at various international research institutions in the Netherlands and Germany, inter alia at the International Institute for Asian Studies in Leiden, the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV), the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Social Anthropology in Halle and the Käte Hamburger Centre of Advanced Studies “Law as Culture” in Bonn. Ramstedt has taught anthropology and sociology of law at various European universities, for instance as Visiting Professor at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law (IISL) in Oñati, Spain, as Guest Professor the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London, and as Private Reader as well as Deputy Professor at the Martin Luther University in Halle. For many years, his research focused on the accommodation of Islamic and customary law norms and institutions in Indonesian state law, the cultural translation of indigenous rights into local contexts, and transnational religious networks in Asia, on which he has published extensively.
Ramstedt has recently been nominated and appointed as the new Scientific Director of the IISL in Oñati, starting in mid-2020. In the context of this appointment, he has shifted his research focus to an inquiry into notions of ‘law’ and ‘justice’ in restorative processes in the Basque country.
Ramstedt also works as an independent mediator, and is one of two chief editors of the book series “Religion and Society in Asia” at Amsterdam University Press.
