ISJR is coming to Munich in 2023!

The 19th biennial meeting of the International Society for Justice Research (ISJR) will be held from July 23 to July 26, 2023 in Munich. It will be organized by the Social Psychology Lab at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.

After years of online conferences and two-dimensional “meetings” in the virtual sphere, we hope that we will finally be able to have a real face-to-face meeting next year… And Munich is just the perfect place for such a conference, especially in summer: lots of sunshine, lots of (Bavarian) beer, a vibrant, fun-loving city, and a stunningly beautiful surrounding area. We are already looking forward to welcoming you here!

The scientific program includes talks, poster presentations, invited symposia, and we are particularly happy to announce two distinguished keynote speakers:

  • Bertram Schmitt, judge at the International Criminal Court in The Hague (since 2015), judge at the German Federal Court of Justice (currently on leave), and honorary professor at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, Germany.
  • Johanna Ray Vollhardt, Associate Professor of Psychology at Clark University, USA.
In addition, we will have ample opportunity to socialize and get in touch, for instance, at the welcome reception (Sunday, July 23, 4 pm) or the conference dinner (Tuesday, July 25, 6:30 pm), which will take place at the centrally located beer hall “Zum Franziskaner” right in the old town of Munich. Make sure you grab a ticket when you register for the conference!

The conference venue will be the Katholische Akademie in Bayern (Catholic Academy of Bavaria) in München-Schwabing, located directly next to the English Garden. We have also negotiated special rates for hotel rooms in that area. More information will be coming soon.

As in previous years, a pre-conference workshop for doctoral students will be hosted by Clara Sabbagh and Manfred Schmitt, will take place on Sunday, July 23 (9 am – 4 pm). A formal call for papers for the doctoral student workshop and the conference itself will be issued in September 2022.

So, stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed… you never know what the pandemic may have in stock for us next year, but we remain as optimistic as we can these days. We’re already looking forward to seeing many of you here in Munich in July 2023!
