Transnational Legal Theory Workshop

Source: Ejil Talk

September 08, 2019

The Transnational Law Institute at King’s College London in partnership with the International Law Department of the Graduate Institute Geneva is hosting a workshop in preparation of a special issue publication in Transnational Legal Theory on bringing the “human problem” back into transnational law: The example of corporate (ir)responsibility. The workshop will take place on 19 – 20 March 2020 at King‘s College London. Using the example of corporate (ir)responsibility, the workshop and subsequent publication aim to refocus transnational law as an analytical framework on the concrete, border-transcending human problems that it had once set out to address. Our objective is to critically discuss some of the ‘theory-focused’ developments in transnational law scholarship and explore the analytical benefits of a ‘problem-focused’ transnational law based on several case studies of corporate (ir)responsibility in thematic areas such as environmental protection, climate change and food security, resource extraction and global supply chains, migration, economic competition and crimes, data protection, cyber security and artificial intelligence. The workshop is free to attend, and a limited number of travel and accommodation stipends are available upon request. In case of interest, please submit an abstract of your paper proposaland a short biography by 1 October 2019. Draft papers will need to be provided by 15 February 2020 for circulation (final papers circa 8000 words). For more information and proposal submissions, please contact bringingthehumanproblemback@gmail.com. For the complete call for papers, please see here or here.

BISA Working Group on Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding.

July 21, 2019

 The BISA Working Group on Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding, with funding from the BISA Postgraduate Network, is organising an interdisciplinary PGR workshop entitled ‘Militarisation and the Local in Peacekeeping: Ambition, Pragmatism and Adaptability’ to be held at City, University of London on 20 September 2019. The workshop is the first of a four part series incorporating practitioners as well as academics and will explore challenges to peacekeeping through the lens of the local. Approaches to peacekeeping operations are increasingly in tension between pragmatic approaches which seek realistically achievable outcomes and ambitious approaches rooted in humanitarian commitments and human rights. We have seen increasingly complex mandates, robust and militarised missions which may negatively affect the local. Topics of interest include how best to pursue human rights and to incorporate local needs, the effect of militarisation and counter-terrorism in peacekeeping mandates, and how these challenges impact human security and building peace. Please send abstracts (of no more than 250 words) to Alexander.Gilder {at} city.ac(.)uk and ss17sw {at} leeds.ac(.)uk no later than 31 July 2019. Further information, including travel bursaries and attendance, can be found here.
