Call for Papers: Law and Institutional Economics of Revolutions – Cairo, Egypt 

In advance of its September 29-30, 2013, conference, the Economic Research Forum invites papers that address the following:

Poverty and widening social disparity cannot only cause revolutions; they may also be the outcome of a revolution. The Arab spring has caused regime change in a number of countries that are making very different experiences with their transition. All of the concerned societies are confronted with fundamental challenges. Preserving—but also improving—the rule of law is one of them. It is the purpose of this workshop to make contributions on how transition periods after revolutions can be made a success. In addition, it explores why such revolutions are triggered in the first place.

Papers that deal with concrete aspects of revolutions in the Middle East are highly welcomed. Particular attention will be paid both to the academic quality but also the real world relevance of the proposals. A limited number of scholarships to cover travel as well as accommodation costs are available.

The conference will be held in English.

Deadline: Please submit either an extended abstract of around five pages or your complete paper until May 15th, 2013. Submissions should be sent to stefan.voigt[@] im

Beyond Responsibility to Protect: Towards Responsible Use of International Law? – Hull, UK 

The McCoubrey Centre for International Law hosts Beyond Responsibility to Protect: Towards Responsible Use of International Law? July 4-5, 2013. The conference is intended for research students and early career scholars.

The key idea is that international law increasingly requires states not only to abstain from breaking the law, but also to pro-actively protect common interests or values of the international community. Seen from this perspective, sovereignty is not merely about rights, but also (perhaps, primarily) about duties; in particular, that States have a responsibility to take steps to prevent breaches of international law, especially the commission of heinous crimes.

Deadline: Interested participants should provide an abstract of no more than 500 words by the 18th of March, 2013 to MCIL[@] If you wish to discuss topics or ideas informally please contact the organising committee at this email address. Presentations should be no longer than 20 minutes in duration.

Business and Human Rights: From Theory to Practice- Call for Papers- Deadline 15 April
Posted on March 14, 2013 by olgamartinortega | Leave a comment

The European Society of International Law (ESIL) Interest Group on Business and Human Rights is calling for papers for its panel on 23 May 2013 at the 5th ESIL Research Forum, Amsterdam. Following the overarching theme of the Research Forum, International Law as a Profession, we invite papers addressing contemporary issues in the field of business and human rights which consider practical challenges in this context. Papers may consider (but are not limited to) the following perspectives:

- Advocacy: how can the business and human rights agenda be promoted through lobbying for or against regulation? How does the process of evidence gathering with regard to the lack of corporate compliance with human rights take place? How do practitioners engage with state and non-state actors to move the agenda forward?

- Litigation: how may practitioners take a corporation to court? What are the legal and procedural obstacles in different jurisdictions? What is the future of US litigation after Kiobel? What are the European alternatives?

- Policy and law making: how may international rules in this context be drafted and passed through national and international institutions? Papers considering this dimension may specifically refer to the national implementation and action plans and processes for the Ruggie framework which are currently taking place in various countries.

Please submit a 300 words abstract proposal (Word or pdf format) via email to Dr. Olga Martin-Ortega ( by 15 April 2013. Candidates are requested to include their name and affiliation in the email but not in the abstract itself.

In order to participate in the Interest Group panel speakers need to be members of ESIL. The membership can be formalised once their abstract has been accepted
