Call for Papers: International Criminal Justice: Theory, Policy and Practice

A call for papers has been issued for a proposed stream on "International Criminal Justice: Theory, Policy and Practice" for the Socio-Legal Studies Association Annual Conference, which will be held April 5-7, 2017, at Newcastle University. Here's the call:

International Criminal Justice: Theory, Policy and Practice

Socio-Legal Studies Association Annual Conference (Newcastle University) 5th-7th April 2017

Call for Papers

The international criminal justice stream at the SLSA Annual Conference contains four panel sessions and invites submissions on all areas of substantive international criminal justice, whether on theory, policy or practice. Empirical work would be particularly welcomed and papers based on “works in progress” will be considered so long as the work is sufficiently developed. Both individual papers and panel submissions (of three related papers) can be submitted for consideration. Postgraduate students are also encouraged to submit abstracts.

Selected papers from the conference will be published in a forthcoming edition of The Hague Justice Journal.

For an informal discussion please email the convenor, Anna Marie Brennan at

Abstracts must be no longer than 300 words and must include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for the submissions is Monday 16 January 2017.
