November 01, 2020

 Paper proposals are invited for the PluriCourts Annual Workshop on the Political and Legal Theory of International Courts and Tribunals 2021: “The Input and Output Legitimacy of International Courts” to be held via zoom from Oslo, Norway, on 24 – 25 June 2021. PluriCourts at the University of Oslo is organising a workshop to bring together scholars of philosophy, political theory and legal theory who study regional and international courts and tribunals (ICs), and in particular issues concerning the input and output legitimacy of ICs. States have established manifold regional and international ICs to resolve disputes, interpret treaties, and deter illegal behaviour. These ICs cover a range of issues, including human rights, trade, investment, border disputes, and international crimes. ICs’ competences, level of authority, method of interpretation, and geographical reach vary widely. Their increase in number and influence naturally raises the question of whether and why they are legitimate. To apply, see here.

Call for Papers: Concepts and Methods Workshop.

Source: Ejil Talk

April 12, 2020

 Paper proposals are invited for a PluriCourts-iCourts “Concepts & Methods” Workshop on the topic When International Courts and Tribunals Defer to States, to be held in Oslo, Norway, on 24 – 25 November 2020. International Courts and Tribunals (ICs) sometimes allow national actors a certain discretion in their implementation of international obligations. To illustrate: The WTO Appellate Body has granted states some latitude to restrict trade under reference to protection of ‘public morals’ (GATT, article XX (a)); and, the European Court of Human Rights sometimes grant states a ‘margin of appreciation’ in applying the European Convention on Human Rights. Such deference by ICs towards states raises several theoretical, conceptual, and methodological challenges for philosophical, legal and social science scholarship: when do ICs defer, why, what are the effects – and how should we assess such deference?  More information can be found here.
