Call for Papers
- LEGINVEST and PluriCourts, in collaboration with Monash University and the Minerva Center for Human Rights at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, are organizing an international symposium on “The Legitimate Role for Investment Law and Arbitration in Protecting Human Rights.” The symposium will take place in Oslo, Norway on the campus of the University of Oslo on Wednesday and Thursday, 4-5 September 2019. This workshop/symposium invites papers from a wide array of perspectives and disciplines, focusing on the questions of synergetic linkages between investment law and human rights law and how that can be achieved. We are particularly looking for creative approaches and research, both theoretically and methodologically, that can move the intellectual debate on the relationship between these two fields forward. Comparative, empirical and cross-disciplinary work is especially welcome. Submit an abstract (no more than 500 words) and a brief CV here by 1 March 2019. Notification of acceptance will be given in the beginning of April 2019. Accepted abstracts will be expected to submit a draft paper of approximately 8000-10000 words by 1 August 2019. We aim at publishing 5 to 6 selected papers in a special issue of the Leiden Journal of International Law.
