Stereotypes and stereotyping play a fundamental role in the persistence of complex inequality forms. This workshop aims at mapping current research on stereotypes in legal reasoning and legal procedures. The objective is to move the discussion beyond the more studied notion of stereotypes as psychological (sometimes unconscious) biases of legal operators and try to grasp the dynamics and mechanisms through which stereotypes are used and reproduced in legal argumentation and procedures.
The workshop is organised around three main themes:
1) Stereotypes in legal arguments regarding human rights and the principle of equality
2) Stereotypes and intersectionality
3) Legal mechanisms for stereotyping
