A series of workshops at the University of Leiden and University of Hamburg build on the nascent literature that aims to integrate empirical insights regarding the bounded rationality of decision-makers from neighbouring disciplines to the analysis of international law. The workshops will act as a forum in which international legal scholars whose research adopts a behavioural approach can present their works-in-progress and gain feedback from a broad range of peers, including scholars in economics and cognitive psychology as well as those conducting empirical and experimental research.

The first workshop – held in Leiden Law School in November 2020, will act as a platform at which scholars can outline the conceptual framework for their project, their methodology, and their preliminary findings. Each speaker will be allocated a discussant and will receive thorough feedback. The second workshop – held at the Institute of Law and Economics in Hamburg in early summer 2021, will give speakers an opportunity to gain feedback on a more developed piece of research, which will form the basis of an article.
