Call for Papers from the International Economic Law Collective for Inaugural Conference 6-7 November 2019 at Warwick Law School in the UK


July 5, 2019

The International Economic Law Collective, aimed at providing a space for critical reflection on international economic law scholarship, teaching and practice and to explore how epistemological and methodological diversity in the discipline can contribute towards the development of a more holistic landscape of scholarship on law and the governance of the global economy will be holding its inaugural conference at Warwick from 6 – 7 November 2019. This new network is an initiative of seven law schools in the UK and builds on the work to pluralise, diversify and decolonise the discipline at these Schools.

This inaugural conference aims to bring together scholars as well as other stakeholders, including policymakers, campaigners and practitioners, to contribute towards the development of The IEL Collective and to springboard and further new and existing conversations about the past, present and future of the discipline.

The Network welcomes papers and contributions that speak to the themes of the Collective and invite critical and contextual reflections of teaching, research and practical engagement with the broad sphere of international economic law. This can include explorations of thematic or substantive areas of international economic law, broadly conceived; contributions towards or challenges of methodological diversity within the discipline; engagements with the policy and practice of international economic law; and issues relating to the engagement of a broader community of scholars, students and stakeholders in the field of international economic law.

The deadline for paper proposals is 31 July 2019. Please send us a title and a brief abstract (250 words maximum).

Please submit proposals and register for the conference here.
