Call for Papers – ESIL IG on Peace and Security
The ESIL Interest Group on Peace and Security is proposing to organise a side event during the 2020 ESIL Research Forum at the Department of Law, University of Catania. The Research Forum will address the topic ‘Solidarity: The Quest for Founding Utopias of International Law’ and the Interest Group’s side event will take place on Thursday 23 April 2020.
We invite papers from early-career scholars which address this theme in the context of peace and security, and welcome those which focus particularly on:
- The legal relationship between sovereignty, solidarity and utopia
- Solidarity, utopia and peace, and their theoretical alignment
- The balance between the competing demands of solidarity and security
- Isolationism, security and solidarity
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 17 January 2020, midnight (London-UK time).
