Call for Papers
- Behavioural Approaches in International Law: A series of workshops at Leiden University and the University of Hamburg will build on the nascent literature that aims to integrate empirical insights regarding the bounded rationality of decision-makers from neighbouring disciplines to the analysis of international law. The first workshop – held at Leiden Law School on 26 November 2020 –will act as a platform at which scholars can outline the conceptual framework for their project, their methodology, and their preliminary findings. The second workshop – held at the Institute of Law and Economics in Hamburg in early summer 2021 – will give speakers an opportunity to gain feedback on a more developed piece of research, which will form the basis of an article. The call for papers is available here and the deadline for submissions is 30 March 2020.
