International Organizations Scholarship Workshop
The International Organizations Interest Group of the American Society of International Law will hold a works-in-progress workshop on Friday, December 12th, in New York City.
If you are interested in presenting a paper at the workshop, please submit an abstract to David Gartner (David.Gartner@asu.edu), Julian Arato (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Sarah Dadush (email@example.com) by the end of the day on October 1st, 2014. Abstracts should be a couple of paragraphs long but not more than one page. Papers should relate to the study of international organizations – broadly construed to include public treaty bodies and more informal international institutions like public-private partnerships, trade associations, and networks.
Papers selected for presentation are due no later than November 20th, as they will be pre-circulated. Papers should not yet be in print so that authors will have time to make revisions based on the comments from the workshop.
The workshop's format will be structured to afford each presenter significant individual feedback. Each paper will have a dedicated session, in which it will first be introduced by a commentator. Thereafter the author will have the opportunity to respond if he or she wishes. The floor will then be opened up for discussion. The workshop will be conducted on the assumption that everyone has read all of the papers in advance. One need not present a paper or comment on a paper to participate. Registration for the workshop will open in November.
