Congratulations to Brian Ray, currently serving as a Fulbright Scholar in South Africa, who was recently named by C|M|LAW Dean Craig M. Boise to serve as the Joseph C. Hostetler-Baker & Hostetler Professor of Law.

Ray has recently published a book review of Sandra Liebenberg’s Socio-Economic Rights. Adjudication under a Transformative Constitution in the European Journal of International Law 2013 24: 739-744.  It’s available here: http://ejil.oxfordjournals.org/content/24/2.toc

Ray also recently helped organize a half-day conference “Meaningful Engagement as a Political Process: Understanding the Roles of Government, Communities, Civil Society and Courts.”  The Community Law Centre’s Socio-Economic Rights Project hosted the event on May 30 at the University of the Western Cape and Stellenbosch University’s Socio-Economic Rights and Administrative Justice Project co-sponsored.  The roundtable discussion brought together government officials, civil society groups active in socio-economic rights and citizen leaders to discuss ways to implement the constitutional requirement that government  “meaningfully engage” with people and civil society when developing social welfare policies.
