Calls for Papers
‘Professionals and Professionalism(s) in International Criminal Justice’: On Friday 14 July 2023 the School of Law and the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Leeds is hosting an International Workshop ‘Professionals and Professionalism(s) in International Criminal Justice’.
The workshop will be looking at three main themes: (1) The International Criminal Justice professional (How do diverse practitioners view their role? How consonant is their professional self-perception with their personal motivations for working in the field?) (2) Professionalism (What values, practices and beliefs animate the notion of ‘professionalism’ for International Criminal Justice practitioners? Who (or what) is excluded by the notion of professionalism? Is there an ‘us’ and ‘them’ to the professional project?) and (3) Wider impact (What is the impact on the institutions of International Criminal Justice, and on the discipline, practice (and teaching?) of international criminal law itself, of these conceptions of professional self-perception and professionalism?).
The call for papers can be found at here, to be submitted by 17 April. This hybrid event will be held in person at the School of Law at the University of Leeds and online. A small number of bursaries are available ECRs and those who might need financial assistance for travel and accommodation.
