Call for Papers -- 2012 Toward a Multipolar Administrative Law a Theoretical Perspective 

Toward a Multipolar Administrative Law a Theoretical Perspective

New York, September 9-10, 2012

The Seminar “Toward a Multipolar Administrative Law – A Theoretical Perspective” will be held in New York onSeptember 9-10, 2012.

In order to launch this initiative, some scholars have already confirmed their participation: they are professor Joseph H.H. Weiler (NYU School of Law) and Sabino Cassese (Judge of the Italian Constitutional Court), Luisa Torchia and Giulio Napolitano (University of “Roma Tre”), and Lorenzo Casini (University of Rome “Sapienza”).

Submissions from both junior and senior scholars are invited on the themes outlined above. An abstract of max 800 words should be sent (in .pdf or .doc format) to by March 31, 2012. 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.

Because the overall aim of the Seminar is not only to assess the consistency of the analytic categories adopted to date, but also to develop more effective and forward-looking tools and theories of administrative law, papers challenging traditional schemes as well as adopting multi-disciplinary approaches are strongly encouraged.

A selection panel will consider all abstracts received by the submission deadline, and notify applicants of paper acceptance by April 30, 2012. The submission date for full papers accepted for presentation is July 31, 2012. The final version of the paper must be no longer than 15,000 words (footnotes included) and must be sent (in .pdf or .doc format) to

Each participant will receive USD 1,000 from the NYU Jean Monnet Center and IRPA, which can be used to finance travel and accommodation expenses, for which they are otherwise responsible.

Papers will be presented at the Seminar and they will be assigned to discussants or commentators invited. Each session of the seminar will be structured as follows: the authors will give a short presentation of the papers (10-15 minutes each); each discussant will comment the papers, addressing the main issues raised and highlighting the relevant cross-cutting questions (15 minutes each discussant); the floor will then be open to general discussion among all seminar participants and the authors, who will be given the opportunity to reply to the comments. Discussants and participants will include leading academics in the field.

Final versions of the paper will be published, after the refereeing process, in the NYU Jean Monnet Working Papers Series. The best contributions may also become part of a symposium dedicated to the “New Theories of Administrative Law”, to be published in The International Journal of Constitutional Law (I-Con), in this case too after the refereeing process.
