ANZSIL Postgraduate Research Students Workshop - Call for Papers

Closing date for the Call for Papers: Friday, 2 March 2018

Workshop will be held: Wednesday, 4 July 2018 at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

The Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law (ANZSIL) Postgraduate Research Students Workshop will be held on Wednesday, 4 July 2018, from 9.00am until 5.00 pm. The Workshop will take place in Wellington, New Zealand.

The aims of the Workshop are to provide postgraduate degree research students with an opportunity to present their research to their peers, to discuss their experiences of postgraduate research and to make academic and professional connections. Participants will give presentations of an aspect of their research for approximately 15 minutes, followed by a roundtable discussion of each paper. Participants will also be expected to engage as discussants of other papers. There is no registration fee. Morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea will be provided.

The Workshop will be followed by the 26th ANZSIL Annual Conference, which will take place from Thursday, 5 July to Saturday, 7 July 2018. ANZSIL will waive the conference registration fee (including the cost of the Conference dinner) for all participants at the ANZSIL Postgraduate Workshop who wish to attend the main Conference. (Workshop participants are still required to complete the conference and dinner registration form.) Participants attending the main ANZSIL Conference may be asked to provide a short report on individual ANZSIL Conference sessions for the ANZSIL Newsletter.

Postgraduate research students wishing to present their work on an international law topic are encouraged to submit their proposals for presentation at the Workshop. Applicants must be enrolled in a higher degree research program (PhD, SJD, or Research Masters) at an Australian or New Zealand university.

Applicants should submit a single document containing a 250 word abstract and brief one page curriculum vitae using the application form by no later than Friday, 2 March 2018. Please include the heading on your email message ‘PG Workshop Application: [Your Name]’. The organisers will let applicants know of the outcome of their application by early April. Participants who have not previously presented at an ANZSIL Postgraduate Workshop will be given priority.

The Coordinators of the Postgraduate Workshop are Dr Madelaine Chiam (La Trobe Law School, Australia) and Dr Guy Fiti Sinclair (Victoria University of Wellington School of Law, New Zealand).
