Call for Papers: MPIL panel at ICON Society annual conference

The Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law invites the submission of proposals for a panel entitled “The Authoritarian Pushback and the Resilience of International Institutions” at the upcoming ICON Society annual conference in Hong Kong (https://www.icon-society.org/2018-conference/).

More than a decade after the emergence of public law approaches to international institutions, such as Global Administrative Law (GAL), Global Constitutionalism, or International Public Authority (IPA), the international system has changed dramatically's The panel will address several research questions that emerge from this situation:

- How does the authoritarian, nationalist pushback change international institutions, including international courts, and how do these changes affect their problem-solving capacity?

- How does the authoritarian, nationalist pushback affect the legitimacy of international institutions, including international courts?

- How resilient are international institutions, including international courts, against the authoritarian, nationalist pushback, and which strategies do they adopt?

Scholars of all levels are invited to submit proposals of up to 500 words until 20 January 2018 to ipa2018@mpil.de. Successful applicants will receive financial support for their travel expenses of up to 1000,- euros.
