Workshop: Cognitive Sociology, Culture and International Law

Today and tomorrow, April 28-29, 2017, iCourts - Centre of Excellence for International Courts at the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Law will host a workshop on "Cognitive Sociology, Culture and International Law." The program is here. Here's the idea:
The past few decades have seen growth in behavioural approaches in the social sciences. In this new behavioural revolution, cognitive psychology, behavioural economics, and sociologists of culture have all paid increasing attention to the role of cognition, focusing in the main on decision-making, both with regard to everyday routines and in the context of risk and uncertainty. This third workshop on the sociology of international law aims to break open the study of interactions between various cognitive processes and the formation, interpretation and implementation of international law.
