Works-in-Progress Workshop

ASIL International Organizations Interest Group

The International Organizations Interest Group of the American Society of International Law will hold a works-in-progress workshop on Saturday, December 1, 2012, at the Arizona State University Building in Washington, DC, 1834 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20008.

If you are interested in presenting a paper at the workshop, please submit an abstract to Lorena Perez (lperez[at], Justin Jacinto (jjacinto[at] and David Gartner (David.Gartner[at] by the end of the day on September 21. Abstracts should be a couple of paragraphs long but not more than one page. Papers should relate to the subject "international organizations."

Papers selected for presentation are due no later than November 17, as they will be pre-circulated. Papers should not yet be in print; ideally, authors will have time to make revisions based on the comments from the workshop.

The workshop's format will be as follows. Each paper will be introduced by a commentator, after which the author will have the opportunity to respond if he or she wishes. The floor will then be opened up for discussion. The workshop is conducted on the assumption that everyone has read all of the papers in advance. After we have selected papers, we will ask for volunteers to serve as commentators. One need not present a paper or comment on a paper to participate. Registration for the workshop will open in October.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about the workshop or paper submissions.
