Calls for Papers
The Legal Implications of the EU’s Geopolitical Awakening (Workshop): The T.M.C. Asser Instituut’s Centre for the Law of EU External Relations (CLEER) and Leiden University are inviting current PhD scholars and early career researchers to submit abstracts for a two-day PhD workshop on the legal implications of the EU’s “geopolitical awakening.” The workshop will take place at the Asser Institute in The Hague on May 6-7, 2024. The workshop will explore the challenges and opportunities posed by the EU’s growing role as a geopolitical actor in the wake of the war in Ukraine. Participants will discuss how the EU can balance its commitment to multilateralism and international law with its need for strategic autonomy in a complex and uncertain global environment. Abstracts should be submitted by 10 February 2024. For more information, click here.
The European Green Deal: Screening for Sustainability: To examine the multi-layered implications of the European Green Deal and its planned transition to decarbonising Europe’s economy, an expert workshop is being organized at Lund University from 29-30 April 2024 under the auspices of the Screening for Sustainability project. The workshop will investigate associated instruments developed in connection to the European Green Deal, including the proposed EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive and other policies and instruments promoting a just transition in and by the EU. In particular, the workshop examines whether these instruments comply with international law. Abstracts should be submitted (of max 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 15 February 2024. A few stipends will be available to cover travel and accommodation, with an emphasis on early career researchers from the Global South.
