Launch Conference Announcement and Call for Papers Regulating Moral Hazard  

Inaugural Conference of the Journal of Financial Regulation
Paris, France | July 11-12, 2014


The threat of moral hazard has played an influential role in shaping post-crisis policy debates about the optimal role and limits of financial regulation as a means of constraining socially excessive risk-taking. Simultaneously, however, our understanding of moral hazard – its potential sources, its impact on financial markets and institutions, and the most appropriate regulatory responses – is far from complete. Where does moral hazard reside within the financial system? How does it influence the decisions of market participants, financial regulators, and elected policymakers? How can we identify and measure its impact? What role does financial regulation play in generating it? And, most importantly, what role can regulation play in preventing – or at the very least minimizing – its pernicious effects?

Regulating Moral Hazard, the inaugural conference of the Journal of Financial Regulation published by Oxford University Press, will seek to enhance our understanding of these and other important questions. More specifically, the conference will seek to explore topics including, but not limited to:

The sources of moral hazard within the financial system. The ‘sources’ of moral hazard in this context can be understood as referring to both the location of socially excessive risk-taking (e.g. systemically important financial institutions, the shadow banking system, etc.) as well as its underlying causes (e.g. implicit and explicit state guarantees, the provision of liquidity by central banks, the interdependent relationship between sovereigns and domestic financial services sectors, etc.);
The relationship between the increasingly integrated structure of the global financial system, the largely fragmented regulatory system which governs it, and the ability of both public and private sector actors to externalize their socially excessive risk-taking;
Regulatory responses on a global or regional level to constrain the moral hazard of sovereigns – including, for example, the evolving role of the European Central Bank and new Single Supervisory Mechanism/Resolution Mechanisms and their impact on moral hazard in the Eurozone;
The emerging role of the U.S. Federal Reserve as de facto global lender of last resort and its impact on moral hazard at the global level;
The role and limits of both conventional regulatory tools (e.g. risk-based supervision and capital requirements) and recent regulatory reforms (e.g. liquidity requirements, bail-in and structural regulation) in constraining moral hazard within financial institutions; and
The role of constitutional and administrative law, as well as other forms of public sector governance, in generating or constraining moral hazard.

The conference organizers invite papers from scholars, policymakers and practitioners on each of these topics. The organizers encourage the submission of papers which examine these topics from an interdisciplinary, international and/or comparative perspective.

Submission Process

All papers should be submitted via email to Geneviève Helleringer at The subject line of the email should state “JFR Inaugural Conference Submission”. Authors who wish to have their conference submission considered for the inaugural issue of the Journal of Financial Regulation should also submit their paper via the ScholarOne link available on the journal’s website:

The deadline for submission of papers for the conference is February 1st, 2014. Authors will be notified regarding whether their paper has been accepted for presentation at the conference by April 1st, 2014.

The Journal of Financial Regulation is a peer-reviewed journal. Papers selected for presentation at the conference are not guaranteed to be accepted for publication in the journal. Accepted papers will, however, be subject to a fast-track peer review process.

Call for Papers: Law, Justice, and the Security Gap 

ondon, 21 June 2014

London School of Economics & Political Science

The world is in the midst of a profound change in the way that security is conceptualized and practiced. Up until 1989, security was largely viewed either as ‘internal security’ or as ‘national’ or ‘bloc’ security and the main instruments of security were considered to be the police, the intelligence services and the military. This traditional view of security fits uneasily with the far-reaching changes in social and political organisation that characterize the world at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

What we call the ‘security gap’ refers to the gap between our national and international security capabilities, largely based on conventional military forces, and the reality of the everyday experience of insecurity in different parts of the world. To some extent, public security capabilities are beginning to adapt to the changing nature of insecurity – with new doctrines or new military-civilian capabilities. But it is also the case that the gap is being filled by private agents – warlords, militias, private security companies, NGOs, for example – and, even though some new forms of hybrid security provision may improve people’s lives at least temporarily, this new market in security may have dangerous implications.

This conference will examine the relationship of law, justice, and in/security at the current juncture by focusing on two broad themes: a) Is the international legal regime adapting to address the ‘security gap’ and how effectively? b) What is the role of novel legal instruments, such as international justice and transitional justice, in relation to the ‘security gap’?

Security related law is undergoing fundamental changes with the growing importance of human rights law, international criminal law and transitional justice. These changes reflect the continuing adaptation and reformulation of legal rules and instruments, as well as the development of new ones. One example is the extension of responsibility for protection and prevention from states to individuals in cases of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. The rules concerning state responsibility are also changing, such as the duty of the state to protect its population and the basis for other actors to fulfil this duty when it fails to do so.

Nevertheless, the current legal regime represents a mismatch of new families of law that extend internal notions of the rule of law, based on individual rights, beyond the nation-state, and classical international law that applies to states, such as international humanitarian law, as well as domestic law. The tensions, gaps and contradictions inherent in this regime raise a number of unsettled questions, for example what body of law should apply in situations like those associated with ‘new wars’ or the ‘war on terror’. The security implications of novel legal instruments, such as international criminal courts and various mechanisms of transitional justice, are also largely unclear, especially from the perspective of the security of individuals and communities rather than states.

‘Law, Justice, and the Security Gap’ is conceived as a forum for reassessing security related law and legal instruments and examining their relationship to contemporary forms of insecurity. The conference seeks to foster a multi-disciplinary discussion that draws on a wide range of approaches and intellectual resources in law and the social sciences and to engage both scholars and practitioners. Advanced PhD students and early-career researchers are also encouraged to apply. We invite theoretical and conceptual contributions as well as empirically focused case-studies.

The conference is convened in the framework of the research programme Security in Transition: An Interdisciplinary Investigation into the Security Gap, funded by the European Research Council at the Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit, Department of International Development, London School of Economics & Political Science. Partial contribution to the costs of attendance may be available for accepted participants, depending on needs and resources.

Call for Papers: Intersections in Reproduction: Perspectives on Abortion, Assisted Reproductive Technologies, and Judicial Review 

Abortion and reproductive technologies have historically occupied separate realms in law, policy, and academia. In spite of some obvious and natural overlap, scholarship exploring the relationship between abortion and assisted reproduction is sparse. In 2014, Judith Daar (Whittier Law School) and Kimberly Mutcherson (Rutgers Law-Camden) will co-guest edit an issue of the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics devoted to articles reflecting on this relationship. JLME is a peer-reviewed journal published by the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics.

The guest editors are open to a wide range of scholarship from authors steeped in various aspects of reproductive justice, reproductive rights and reproductive technologies who can explore the future of assisted reproduction and abortion as matters of scholarly concern and legal regulation, especially when viewed as part of a larger movement for reproductive rights and reproductive justice. The term reproductive technologies should be interpreted broadly in this context to go beyond IVF and include a range of techniques used in conjunction with assisted methods of conception.

Questions papers might choose to tackle include, but are in no way limited to:

- What is the relationship between the right to create a pregnancy through assisted reproduction and the right to terminate a pregnancy? Papers could explore constitutional groundings for the rights, similarities and differences in how the rights have or should evolve, and how these potentially evolving rights can or should impact each other.

- What common ground and common cause can be found between those who advocate on behalf of people who use assisted reproductive technology and women who want to terminate pregnancies?

- What is the role of stigma in controlling women’s reproductive choices in these two areas and how does stigma in one area impact another? For example, how does stigma directed at women working as surrogates relate to stigma directed towards women who terminate a pregnancy?

- What is the relationship between paternalist justifications for the regulation of assisted reproductive technology and paternalist justifications for the regulation of decision making about terminating pregnancies?

-How has technology influenced women’s choices and autonomy in reproductive decision-making, either in creating or ending embryonic life, and how does it impact judicial review of these decisions?
Special consideration will be given to writing that explores connections, disconnections, and contradictions in how law, public policy, and ethics understand abortion and how those arenas understand assisted reproduction. Final papers should be ten-twenty pages, including endnotes.
On April 17-18, 2014, as a prelude to the special issue, the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice at Yale Law School will host a workshop to discuss papers that have been preliminarily selected for publication in the special issue of JLME, and potentially additional papers that explore these themes. Post-workshop, authors will have time to revise their papers for purposes of publication in the special issue or for potential placement elsewhere.

To be considered for inclusion in this special issue and the workshop in April, please send an abstract of no more 500 words to Judith Daar ( and Kim Mutcherson ( by November 18, 2013. If you do not want your work considered for inclusion in the special issue of JLME, please make that clear in your abstract. Authors who are selected for inclusion in the special JLME issue and/or the workshop will be notified no later than December 13, 2013. Drafts of papers for the workshop will be due by March 10, 2014. Final papers will be due to the editors by May 23, 2014.

If you have any questions about this CFP, please feel free to contact Judith Daar at or Kimberly Mutcherson at

You are here: Home *** CALLS FOR PAPERS Call for Papers: The Law and the Child in Historical Perspective, 1400-2000 – Minneapolis, MN Monday, November 4, 2013 Call for Papers: The Law and the Child in Historical Perspective, 1400-2000 

University of Minnesota Law School invites papers for The Law and the Child in Historical Perspective, 1400-2000, on June 1-2, 2014.

The study of the history of children, youth and childhood has grown dramatically in the last two decades, making age a new category of historical analysis. The Law and the Child will focus on law’s central role in changing understandings of childhood and children’s experiences, considering among other things selfhood, family, market relations, society, and state. Our hope is for a broad reach geographically and chronologically, from the Medieval World to the Twenty-First Century, and for papers that consider the multiple sources that intersect in the legal construction of childhood and in children’s lived legal experiences. These include race, class, gender, disability, sexuality, ethnicity, psychology, dependency, agency, citizenship, and (il)legitimacy. We also hope papers will address topics in both civil and criminal law. The conference, one of a series begun in 2007, is intended to showcase the work of junior scholars working the field of legal history and to bring them into conversation with senior scholars.

Deadline: December 20, 2013. Submit a proposal of no more than 300 words, in Word format, accompanied by a C.V. of no more than 3 pages to Barbara Welke at welke004[@] Notification date: February 17, 2014. No previously published work will be accepted, as the conference is designed to provide a forum for productive and supportive discussion of works in progress. Accepted papers (no longer than 10,000 words) must be submitted by May 1, 2014. All papers will be pre-circulated on a password-protected website, and read by all participants. A modest travel and accommodations budget will be provided for all presenters.

Call for Papers Law and Global Governance of Development 

We invite various types of papers and approaches – and in particular submission from scholars based or trained in developing countries or in new financing countries (BRICs, etc.). Papers can focus on a legal analysis, as knowledge about and understanding of the concrete rules is only slowly emerging. Papers might focus on the political economy of rules or analyse the political theory of development governance. We also welcome papers that provide a critical engagement with the structures, as “development” is surely one of the most contested concepts in international law today.

Submissions from both junior scholars (including PhD students and advanced law students, as well as practitioners and new faculty) and senior scholars are invited on the themes outlined above. Abstracts should be at least 150 words, but longer and more fully-developed abstracts up to 1,000 words are welcome and encouraged where possible. Abstracts should be sent (in .doc or .docx format) to by February 16, 2014. Abstracts must include a statement of the issue area of the paper, as well as an indication of the major arguments to be made, a proposed title, and postal, email and telephone contacts for the author.

A selection panel will consider all abstracts received by the submission deadline, and notify applicants of paper acceptance by March 2, 2014. The submission date for full papers accepted for presentation is May 11, 2014. The final version of the paper must be no longer than 8,000 words (footnotes included) and must be sent (in .doc or .docx format) to Only a
limited number of promising papers can be accepted. It is expected that some funding will be available to assist paper presenters with travel costs. A .pdf version of this document is available here. For any further information please contact
