Call for Papers: JIEL-ASIL Junior Faculty Forum for International Economic Law

A call for papers has been issued for the inaugural JIEL-ASIL Junior Faculty Forum for International Economic Law. Here's the call:

JIEL-ASIL Junior Faculty Forum for International Economic Law (IEL-Forum)

The Journal of International Economic Law and the International Economic Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law are delighted to announce the first annual IEL-Forum for Junior Scholars. The IEL-Forum aims at bringing together early career scholars (including junior faculty, VAPs, PhD candidates, etc.) working in the field of international economic law. The purpose is to allow scholars to present their work before an audience of peers and experts and receive feedback from senior scholars. In addition, at least one piece will receive an offer of publication to appear in the 25th volume of the Journal of International Economic Law—the leading publication in the field.

Rules and Format

We welcome applications from early career scholars teaching in law faculties or other schools such as in economics, political science, history or international relations. The Forum welcomes submissions covering a wide range of international economic law topics – trade, investment, finance, tax, labor, intellectual property, data, and other topics reflective of the broad nature of the field.

At the IEL-Forum, up to six successful applicants will present their work; for each paper, a senior scholar will provide a response followed by general discussion by the entire Forum. The intention is to create a process of sustained exchange and feedback that can help to improve the piece. Interested applicants should submit a brief description of the unpublished/unsubmitted project (up to 800 words) and a CV by June 11, 2021 to Applicants should be prepared to comply with the following schedule:

  • Selection and Notification of the List of Participants by July 16, 2021.
  • Draft Papers (up to 12,500 words) circulated by September 10, 2021.
  • IEL-Forum will be held on or around September 23 & 24, 2021 as a zoom event (this year).
