UDC Law Review Symposium Call for Papers
TOPIC: POVERTY’S COST: HOW PRIVATIZATION, PROFITS, AND PUBLIC POLICY PLACE HIGHER BURDENS ON THE POOR AND PEOPLE OF COLOR; Symposium Date: March 2017
Our Topic: The topic of the 2017 UDC Law Review Symposium addresses the effects of current business policies on vulnerable communities, particularly the poor and people of color.
Possible topics may include:
- Social, health, and community costs of environmental deregulation and self-reporting.
- Human and economic impacts of privatizing criminal justice services, including private prisons, bail services, immigration detention, and community monitoring.
- Hidden costs of privatizing public utilities.
- Discriminatory impacts of deregulating the financial services industries.
- Economic and social costs of privatizing and deregulating education.
Additionally, the Symposium will examine the ongoing impact of lobbying and legislative efforts to address these cost inequities, as well as public policies and strategies for countering these negative effects.
The Law Review’s editorial board invites submissions on topics exploring ways in which society at large subsidizes corporations, with disproportionate impacts on low-income people and people of color. Submissions from academics and practitioners are invited and welcomed. To be considered for inclusion in the 2017 Symposium Edition, please send an abstract (300-word limit) of your proposed paper to firstname.lastname@example.org, with Attn: Jessica Christy in the subject line.
