Call For Papers -- A Comparative Institutional Framework for Global Governance Analysis 

A Comparative Institutional Framework for Global Governance Analysis

European University Institute, Florence, 3 May 2012

SCIENTIFIC COORDINATORS: Neil Komesar (Wisconsin University) and Miguel Poiares Maduro (Global Governance Programme, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute)

This workshop focuses on constructing an analytical framework to understand and discuss different proposals regarding global governance. The framework we will employ is Comparative Institutional Analysis (CIA).

OVERVIEW: CIA is at once an obvious and yet challenging approach to global governance. It seems obvious that analyzing global governance means analyzing the available and proposed governance mechanisms - institutions in our sense of the word. This task is challenging because these institutional mechanisms are all highly imperfect and their imperfections tend to parallel one another.

It is common to find one-sided critiques of existing governance as though such insights provide a sufficient case for the substitution of some often idealized alternative. This is single institutional analysis. Although single institutional analysis makes for attractive if superficial rhetorical argument it is largely analytically empty. It is absolutely necessary to address the real functioning of all the relevant institutional alternatives. This is comparative institutional analysis.

We seek papers willing to address this central issue in the context of global governance. The papers may deal with the general questions of global governance or with specific case studies. The essential requirement is that they engage both with Global Governance and Comparative Institutional Analysis.

IMPORTANT DATES: Selection of participants will be based on either a 2-3 pages outline of their proposed paper (with details on the methodology and empirics) or (better) a first draft of their paper. An up-to date CV should also be provided.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Proposals and the CVs should be sent in pdf format to: eleonora.carcascio@eui.eu no later Than 2 April 2012.

Please name your file according to the following format SURNAME_CIA_Draft.pdf and SURNAME_CIA_CV.pdf

Selection results will be notified by 12 April. Draft papers will have to be delivered no later than 30 April 2012. The workshop will take place on 3 May 2012.

ABOUT THE GLOBAL GOVERNANCE PROGRAMME: The goals of the Global Governance Programme (GGP) are to share knowledge, develop new ideas on issues of global governance, and serve as a bridge between research and policy-making. Research, Policy and Training are the three dimensions of the GGP. The GGP is part of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies of the European University Institute, a world-renowned and truly European academic institution uniquely placed to contribute the European perspective to the global governance debate.

The Law and Practice of the International Criminal Court: Achievements, Impact and Challenges 

The Law and Practice of the International Criminal Court:Achievements, Impact and Challenges

Organized by the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies with the support of the Open Society Justice Initiative

September 27 – 28, 2012 Peace Palace, The Hague, The Netherlands

In 2012, the International Criminal Court (ICC) will celebrate the ten-year anniversary of its entry into force. This anniversary presents an occasion to reflect on the world’s first permanent institution designed to hold individuals accountable for violations of serious international crimes. It is an opportunity to examine the law and practice of the Court, its contribution to international criminal law and policy, and its potential role in countries where such crimes have been committed. The conference will bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines and practitioners from within the broader international law community to reflect on the ICC as an institution, its jurisprudence, the impact of its activities and to critically assess future possibilities for the Court.

The conference organizers are currently seeking submissions for panel discussants. Interested participants should send a draft title and abstract of their proposal (500 words), written in English, together with a CV to pcj@cdh.leidenuniv.nl. Proposals are due no later than Monday, April 16, 2012. Submissions should be related to one of the themes listed below, and should indicate under which theme their proposal is to be considered. Accepted submissions may be considered for publication in a volume on the Conference theme with a leading international publisher.

ASIL-ESIL International Legal Theory Workshop Call for Papers  

ASIL-ESIL International Legal Theory Workshop Call for Papers

ASIL's International Legal Theory Interest Group, in partnership with the European Society of International Law (ESIL) Interest Group on International Legal Theory, will hold a joint works-in-progress workshop at the University of Cambridge’s Lauterpacht Centre for International Law September 27–28, 2012.

The workshop’s theme is “Transatlantic Debates in International Legal Theory.” On many levels, the interaction between North American international legal scholarship and its European counterpart(s) is working very well. Time and again, however, one finds that the underlying theoretical or philosophical framework is radically different. In this workshop we would like to explore that difference without letting ourselves be defined by it. Contributions analyzing, criticizing, denying or celebrating the difference are welcome, as well as papers exemplifying the various theoretical approaches to international law, be they “American,” “European,” or neither. The most important function of this workshop is to intensify the transatlantic theoretical debate by bringing together scholars with diverse disciplinary, philosophical, and methodological perspectives to discuss cutting-edge research on international legal theory.

Up to 12 papers will be selected for presentation. Although discussants will be assigned to introduce the papers, all workshop participants will be expected to read all of the contributions in advance and come prepared to contribute to the discussion. Interested participants should submit an abstract (1,000 words maximum) summarizing the ideas they propose to develop for presentation at the workshop. Submissions on all topics related to international legal theory are encouraged, but preference will be given to proposals that engage the workshop’s theme. Papers that have been accepted for publication prior to the workshop are eligible for consideration, provided that they will not appear in print before the workshop.

Abstract submissions should be sent to asil.esil.theory@gmail.com by April 20, 2012. Successful applicants will be notified by May 11, 2012. Papers must be fully drafted and ready for circulation to participants by August 31, 2012. Questions regarding the workshop may be directed to Evan Criddle (ecriddle@law.syr.edu ) or Jörg Kammerhofer (joerg.kammerhofer@jura.uni-freiburg.de ).

1st Middle East International Congress: New Politics and Society in the Middle East 

New Politics and Society in the Middle East

Sakarya University, Institute for Social Sciences

October 9-11, 2012

Sakarya, Turkey

Institute for Social Sciences of Sakarya University is pleased to announce “1st Middle East International Congress: New Politics and Society” which will be held between 9 and 11 October, 2012 in Sakarya, Turkey. The Middle East is once again under spotlight thanks mainly to the Arab Awakening. The latter refers to a ground breaking chain of events that require radical reworking not only in the Middle Eastern politics but also in the groves of academe, which have largely been caught off guard and oblivious of the new social dynamics of the region. This congress invites observers and students of the region to reconsider and rework not only the highly topical events of the day but also several related phenomena that include citizenry, political action, state building, democratic politics, social legitimacy of authority, social justice, social media, new political consciousness, national self-determination and the post 9/11 international politics of the Middle East. It is vital for the participants to consider that while Europe and the US needed several centuries to develop modern political governance and civil society, the challenge for the Middle Eastern peoples is to press on the means of democratic politics in a much shorter time frame and under perilous conditions. Sakarya University, Institute for Social Sciences invites scholars, public figures and activists of all stripes to join the panels and colloquiums for advancing our understanding of the new dynamics of the region. The language of the Congress will be English, Arabic and Turkish with simultaneous translations provided.

Some of the major topics of the congress are as follows:

Arab awakening: Revolutions in the Middle East, social media, the role of women in the revolutions, international responses.

Middle eastern politics: fall of the dictators, rise of new social movements, Islamic political parties, elections and problems of democracy-building.

Economy: Energy politics, financial crisis, economic development.

Islam and Society: the rise of new Islamic movements, social Islam vs. political Islam.

Turkey and the Middle East: New Turkish foreign policy in the Middle East.

Palestinian Question: the rise of Jewish radicalism, Palestinian politics after the Arab awakening.

Iran in the regional context: politics of nuclear weapons, Iran in the Middle East

International Politics of the Middle East: the rise and fall of the US projects and vision in the region, Arab Union, European Union and the Middle East.

Important Dates:

Deadline for Submission of Abstracts: 7 May 2012

Announcement of Accepted Abstracts: 4 June 2012

Deadline for Submitting Final Version of Papers: 3 September 2012

Congress: 9 - 11 October 2012

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 administrativelaw@irpa.eu 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 administrativelaw@irpa.eu.

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.
