The SLSA Board approved the following policies in 2020.
SLSA Equality and Diversity Policy
The Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA) is committed to the values of equality, diversity and inclusivity and strives to ensure these principles are reflected in its policy, practice and governance. The Association understands these values to be integral to the advancement of research, teaching and the dissemination of knowledge in the field of socio-legal studies. Therefore the Association is committed to opposing discrimination and to striving for equality and diversity on the basis of gender, sexuality, gender identity, ethnicity, race, nationality, age, religion, disability, mental health status, marital status, family responsibility, and class.
The SLSA Equality and Diversity Policy sets out the objectives of the Association and outlines the steps that will be taken to achieve equality and diversity outcomes. The Association has established an Equality and Diversity Sub-Committee, whose role is to promote the objectives set out in this policy and to monitor their implementation. There is further information outlining the role of the Sub-Committee in the SLSA Equality and Diversity Policy.
The Equality and Diversity in SLSA Conferences document contains further guidance for organisers of the SLSA Annual Conference and the SLSA Postgraduate Conference, and other events either sponsored or co-sponsored by the Association. The guidance in this document also extends to stream conveners and delegates.
