Call for Papers: ‘The Neglected Methodologies of International Law – Empirical, Socio-Legal and Comparative’. 

THE NEGLECTED METHODOLOGIES OF INTERNATIONAL LAW: EMPIRICAL, SOCIO-LEGAL AND COMPARATIVE
Centre for European Law and Internationalisation, University of Leicester – 31 January 2018

We invite proposals of early career researchers for papers at a workshop on ‘The Neglected Methodologies of International Law – Empirical, Socio-Legal and Comparative’. 

Methodologies of international law remain predominantly doctrinal. However, new approaches to international legal research are emerging. These range from pioneering socio-legal studies in the fields of international economic law and investment to quantitative studies of UN Security Council’s practice to transplantation techniques in the field of international criminal law and global constitutionalism. The aim of the workshop is to critically assess the potential long-term implications for the development of international law as a discipline.

 

Submission of Proposals
Abstracts of proposed papers of 1,000 words (approximately) should be sent via email to the organising committee (Dr Rossana Deplano, rossana.deplano@le.ac.uk AND Dr Paolo Vargiu, paolo.vargiu@le.ac.uk) by 15 November 2017. Abstracts must include the institutional affiliation of the author.
