Negotiating Public Order

Abstract : Although ’public order’ as a concept is used often and carelessly, its content is not at all ubiquitous and simple. Once grounded in the moral order imposed by religion or the sovereign state, in our contemporary society public order is the object of dialogue and contestation among a plurality of actors. Public space is an important arena for political negotiation and economic enterprise or ‘mundane’, everyday social interaction. In this international seminar organized by the Crime and Society Research Group (CRiS-VUB), experts with various disciplinary backgrounds will fuel the debate on how to understand a concept such as public order. This event will also be the occasion to launch the book "Order and Conflict in Public Space" (Routledge, 2016) edited by CRiS researchers.
