14th ILECS conference

Četrnaesta ILECS konferencija biće posvećena problemu teritorija i posebno granica kao uzroka konflikata i ratova. Prostor i njegova omeđenost su, kao izvor sigurnosti i uređenosti zajedničkog života, oduvek bili značajni za ljude. Definisana teritorijalnost pospešuje efikasnost u delanju ostvarivanja postavljenih ciljeva, omogućava planiranje i izbegavanje konflikata, tako da se može reći da su granice država potrebne za normalnu artikulaciju pravnih normi i, kao i same te norme, normativno se tretiraju kao sakrosanktne. To naravno otvara teško pitanje njihove nepromenljivosti i mogućeg načina opravdavanja eventualne promene kada teritorije više ne odgovaraju artikulaciji stvarnog zajedničkog života bilo da je to zbog promene određenja zajedništva i promene zakona (pre svega zbog promene suštine kolektivnog identiteta kao one zakonodavne volje preko koje se definiše šta je “naše” a šta “njihovo”), ili zbog drugih promena u stvarnom prostoru. Te promene mogu da idu na dva nivoa, kao promena granica i kao promena onih čije su to granice. Sloboda kretanja i granice te slobode tako dobijaju veoma složene forme. Raspolaganje prostorom koje je, pored raspolaganja vremenom, osnova svih prava postaje stvar artikulacije ovlašćenja i, konačno, prava na odbranu kao konačnog opravdanja teritorijalnosti. Opravdanje odbrane povlači zatim opravdanje sukoba i ratova, upravo onoga što se ograničenjem prostora u definisane teritorije i uspostavljanjem zakona na njima pokušava izbeći.
