Calls for Papers
SLADI Conference 2023 – “Latin American International Law”: SLADI invites you to submit proposals for papers or panels addressing the theme of their biennial conference on “Latin American International Law”, which will take place between 29 November and 1 December 2023, at the University of São Paulo. This year’s theme seeks to place Latin America as a unit of analysis, and to place its thoughts and perspectives on international law at the centre of the debate. It also explores the role of regionalism in a global regulatory context, and the interests and characteristics that unite and separate Latin America. SLADI invites abstracts that address concerns and developments specific to the region, such as international environmental law, the impact of human activity on future generations, international investment law, the rise of populism, among other areas of concern. It also welcomes papers on the relationship with other regions, the growing role of China in the region, the new geopolitical configuration, historical human rights issues, the law of the sea, peaceful dispute resolution and transitional justice. Please find further information here.
Proposals for papers or panels can address any of the concerns on this agenda. They should be submitted by 31 July 2023 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words, and should be accompanied by a CV of up to two pages and a brief cover letter. Applications may be submitted in English, Portuguese, French, or Spanish, and conference presentations may be made in any of these four working languages. Selected papers will be notified by 15 August 2023. Full papers are expected to be published in a special dossier organised by SLADI and entitled “Latin American International Law” in an international journal with a blind peer-review policy. SLADI will provide letters of acceptance so that participants can seek support from their respective institutions. Participants will be responsible for the costs of their participation in this event.
The Promise and Perils of Human Rights for Governing Digital Platforms: The Global Transformations and Governance Challenges Initiative at Leiden University announces a new call for papers for an interdisciplinary workshop on The Promise and Perils of Human Rights for Governing Digital Platforms. As the policy arena of digital platform governance becomes increasingly centred on human rights-based approaches, this workshop invites critical (self-)reflection on the potential and perils of human rights as a vocabulary of governance in this context. The aim is to foster an interdisciplinary exchange with leading experts from diverse academic disciplines and communities of practice, including but not limited to the fields of ethics and (political) philosophy, anthropology, and (international) law. The two-day workshop will be hybrid and take place on 18 and 19 January 2024. Applicants are invited to submit a non-anonymized abstract (maximum 300 words) in PDF format by email to email@example.com no later than 30 September 2023. Full project description and call for papers are accessible here.
