PAL began with an effort to study the mechanics of autocratic legalism in Brazil, India, and South Africa through in-depth studies on these three countries.
This stage, called PAL BISA 1, is unfolding into multiple outputs.
A book on Brazil is well along and will be published in Portuguese and English this year, edited by Oscar Vieira, Fabio de Sa e Silva, Raquel Pimenta, and Marta Machado.
An interview symposium focusing on India will be published by the Jindal Global Law Review, coordinated by Deepa Das Acevedo.
Separate country studies will be presented at the Lisbon Conference and published in 2022.
