Call for Papers: 2nd Hamburg Young Scholars’ Workshop in International Law

The Institute for International Affairs at the University of Hamburg Faculty of Law has issued a call for papers for the 2nd Hamburg Young Scholars’ Workshop in International Law, to be held September 15-16, 2017. Here's the call:

15 - 16 September 2017

2nd Hamburg Young Scholars’ Workshop in International Law

Institute for International Affairs,
University of Hamburg Faculty of Law

The Hamburg Workshop will be held from 15 - 16 September 2017 to discuss research projects in international law among peers (e.g. a chapter of a dissertation, a draft of an article, case comments). The workshop brings together promising doctoral students and postdocs with a background in international law and neighbouring disciplines. All participants ought to exchange ideas and arguments to inspire each other and advance with their research. Public international law and common sense will serve as a shared basis that will result in discovering parallel developments and similar issues in different fields of international law.

Each participant is granted 60 minutes for presentation including a discussion, which will allow for an in-depth debate to constructively discuss the ideas presented.

Please submit in one single PDF file your 300-500 words proposal as well as your CV (up to 3 pages) to anne.dienelt@uni-hamburg.de until 31st May 2017. The selection of presentations is based on the quality of the abstract, as well as its capacity to engage with the other proposals towards a collaborative academic and intellectual discussion.

Selected proposals will be announced by mid-June 2017. The workshop will take place in the premises of the University of Hamburg. Unfortunately, there is no funding available to cover travel or accomodation expenses.

Questions may be directed to Anne Dienelt (anne.dienelt@uni-hamburg.de).

We look forward to your submissions and participation!
