Call for Papers
- LSE is pleased to announce a call for papers for a workshop on Gender, Peace and Nature to take place on 28 June 2019 at the Centre for Women, Peace and Security. The purpose of this workshop is to draw together the links between the nature, the Earth, our home, and gender discrimination and structural inequality in the context of international legal conceptions of peace and security. This workshop aims to explore gender, peace and the environment through a number of different lenses and disciplines. The topics might include nature, climate change, environmental peacebuilding, destruction, extraction/extractive economies, water, land rights, mining, mines, indigenous rights, natural disasters and sustainable development. The workshop welcomes work which explores these issues from a range of perspectives under the broad umbrella of conflict studies, peace and security studies, and international/environmental law. Research which uses feminist methodologies is particularly encouraged. The deadline for abstracts is 11 February 2019. The link to the full call is located here.
- Within the program of the 29th biennial World Congress of the International Association for the Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy, which takes place in Lucerne, Switzerland on 7–13 July 2019, the special workshop “Philosophical Perspectives on International Law” is held on the 11–12 July 2019. International law represents both a philosophical concept and a social phenomenon. Regarding this, the workshop will focus on presentations that explore, but are not necessarily limited to, such questions as:What is the most appropriate philosophical perspective in which both domestic and international law can be explained in a coherent manner?Should there be a distinction between the concept of law and the concept of international law?How does understanding international law as a (philosophical) concept and as a (social) phenomenon correlate and diverge?How can the social dimensions of (international) law (historical, anthropological, sociological, economic, political, etc.) inform and challenge competing philosophical perspectives?What can the legacies of the canonical writers of domestic jurisprudence do for the philosophy of international law today (Hart, Kelsen, Hayek, Dworkin, Raz, Fuller, etc.)? The abstracts of 600 words max. should be sent to both k [dot] v [dot] gorobets [at] rug [dot] nl and a [dot] h [dot] hadjigeorgious [at] rug [dot] nl by January 15, 2019. Please note that all accepted presenters must register as Congress participants. The selected presenters will be informed by January 25, 2019, in order to provide them with an opportunity to register under the ‘early bird’ conditions.
