Call for Papers
ESIL interest groups will meet on the afternoon of the 20th April 2016, in advance of the 2016 ESIL Research Forum at Koç University Law School.
The Interest Groups on Feminism and International Law and International Legal Theory will host a joint workshop aimed at engaging with the theme of making of international law from a theoretical perspective.
We are inviting submissions that might engage with (but are not limited to) the following questions:
• How does the use of a particular theoretical perspective influence the process and the outcomes of the making of international law?
• What distinct insights can be gained from analyzing the making of international law through various theoretical perspectives?
• Does theory matter for the making of international law and if so how?
The organisers of the workshop are particularly interested in papers that address the interplay between different theoretical perspectives, especially the various feminist approaches to international law and other theories.
However, papers addressing the above questions from any theoretical perspective are welcome.
The making of international law is interpreted broadly.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be submitted to organisers of the workshop Dr Ekaterina Yahyaoui and Dr Loveday Hodson using the following e-mail address:
Please include your name, e-mail address and a one-page curriculum vitae.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 10 January 2016.
Successful applicants will be notified by e-mail by 30 January 2016.
Although there is no charge for attending the workshop, successful applicants will be expected to bear the costs of their own travel and accommodation.
