It will feature thematic sessions, roundtables and reading groups, exploring the links between global economic law, sustainability and environmental justice and various forms of inequalities and exclusions, and the meanings of ‘just transitions’ in law, small writing workshops, and sessions on career development, as well as activities in Amsterdam connecting the city to global dynamics, such as colonization, international trade, the fossil fuel economy and counter-hegemonic dynamics.
Interested in joining us?
This workshop is open to PhD researchers and early career scholars working on law, globalization and sustainability, and especially to those working on interdisciplinary projects, studying law in connection to other disciplines.
Please send us a maximum one-page document including the title and a brief abstract of your research, and a text about you and your work. We are particularly interested in applications from scholars from institutions, and cultural backgrounds which tend to be under-represented in global conferences. Up to 15 scholars will be selected.
Partial or total funding is available for those applicants whose institutions can’t cover traveling and accommodation in Amsterdam.
Please send your application by June 4th to firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected applicants will be notified by mid-June and they will be expected to send a 6000-word (max) work-in progress that they would like to receive feedback on.
Here are some of the themes covered:
- the divides between social and environmental justice
- intersectionality as legal method(s) and practice(s)
- sustainable global markets & the links between the economy, gender, race and culture
- (re) imagining sustainable futures
