Call for Papers: Adaptation and Change in Global Governance
Source: International Law Reporter
The Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals and the ESADE Business School Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics have issued a call for papers for the fourth Barcelona Workshop on Global Governance, on February 4-5, 2016. The theme is “Adaptation and Change in Global Governance.” Here’s the call:
Barcelona Workshop on Global Governance. Adaptation and Change in Global Governance
4 & 5 February 2016 – IBEI & ESADEgeo, Barcelona
Call for Papers
The world is changing, but its institutions do not always change in the same way and at the same speed. Global governance institutions adapt and change in response to both internal and external stimuli, and they often also provoke changes in norms, structures and other actors. Much of the infrastructure of global governance—including intergovernmental organizations, international normative frameworks, and privately-created bodies—was created in the aftermath of World War II. In many cases, the mandates of intergovernmental organizations and private bodies have since expanded beyond recognition, budgets and staff numbers have multiplied, and legal frameworks have been extended and revised. In short, the world looks very different now from 70 years ago, and so too do the institutions of global governance. Still, many observers decry a reluctance to change, even a gridlock. Against this background, the 2016 Barcelona Workshop on Global Governance asks how the institutions of global governance change – how they initiate and manage internal reforms, adapt in response to external stimuli, and provoke change in other institutions – and what limitations this change faces. Key questions include:
How do institutions adapt in response to external changes? Are some kinds of institution more adaptable than others? What determines their level of adaptability?
What are the main drivers of internal change in international organizations? How is such change resisted, accepted, and managed?
What role does individual leadership play in guiding change in global governance institutions?
How do global governance institutions provoke change in international norms, structures, and other actors?
The Barcelona Workshop on Global Governance is a venue for the study of global governance – its structure, effects, and problems – from an interdisciplinary perspective, bringing together scholars from international relations, law, sociology, anthropology, political theory, public administration and history. Its 4th edition will be held on 4 & 5 February 2016 in Barcelona.
Confirmed keynote speakers include Pascal Lamy (former Director-General of the World Trade Organization) and David Held (Professor of Politics and International Relations, Durham University).
The workshop is organized by ESADEgeo (ESADE Business School’s Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics) and IBEI (Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals).
We invite abstract proposals from interested scholars from all disciplines. Proposals should not exceed 500 words in length. Preferred format for all submissions is PDF.

Full papers are expected to be delivered by 27 January 2016 for circulation among participants.

Call for Papers: What to Learn from International Human Rights Systems?
Source: Interamerican Human Rights
The IAHRN is inviting submissions for papers to be presented at a two-day workshop entitled “Moving Beyond the Good, the Bad and the Ugly: What to Learn From International Human Rights Systems?“. The workshop will be held at Ghent University’s Human Rights Centre on 29th and 30th January 2016.
The aim of this initiative is to look at the IAHRS and other international human rights bodies from a critical perspective and to examine which of their practices have contributed towards ensuring genuine respect for human rights; what good practices, strategies and actions to address violations of human rights could be copied from other jurisdictions; and which practices do not deserve to be repeated or replicated.
Academics, judges, and practitioners from all regions of the world are invited to discuss opportunities for improving policies and outcomes through the implementation of international decisions and the use of rights, and to address the dilemmas in the context of violence, discrimination, exclusion, inequality and/or economic constraints. Further details regarding topics to be discussed during the conference are available in the attached Call for Papers.
If you are interested in participating, please send a half page abstract of the paper you would plan to present to Clara.BurbanoHerrera@UGent.be and firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, but no later than Tuesday 3rd November 2015. Along with your proposal, please include your name and title, institutional affiliation, and biographical statement (max. 200 words).
