Research symposium: goal and content
This symposium will entail presentation of current scholarship and research in international economic law, hosted by the International Economic Law Interest Group of the Australia and New Zealand Society of International Law.
The goal of this symposium is to promote and facilitate discussion of works in progress relating to international economic law. There is no specific theme. Paper proposals may address or be related to any international economic law topic. Interdisciplinary work is encouraged but not required. The call for papers is open to both new and established academics, as well as junior and senior practitioners in the field. We will aim to accommodate on the programme:
- At least one presentation on recent judicial decisions (eg. WTO cases or investment arbitral awards).
- At least one presentation relating to teaching in the field of international economic law.
- At least one presentation by a current PhD student.
- At least one presentation by a non‐lawyer (eg. economist or political scientist).
Paper submission, selection and publication
Paper proposals and all other program‐related correspondence must be submitted electronically by 14 November 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org . Proposals should include an email with the author’s name and full contact information, and a Word attachment with an anonymous abstract (i.e. not bearing the author’s name) of no more than 350 words.
The organizing committee will review and select the proposals for inclusion in the symposium on a blind basis.
Decisions regarding inclusion in the conference programme will be sent by 30 November 2011. Paper contributors will be expected to provide full paper drafts by 10 February 2012. Papers should not be longer than 12,000 words (excluding footnotes) and should be work that has not yet been published or committed for publication.
The submitted paper drafts will be posted online as working papers prior to the conference to facilitate discussion at the symposium.
The symposium will take place at the Law School of the University of Sydney on Friday 2 March 2012. It will start no earlier than 8.30am and finish no later than 5.30pm.
Each session will have an appointed discussant and the symposium format will allow sufficient time for constructive discussion and debate of the papers, which will be made available in advance.
