As part of the Transformative Effects of Globalization in Law (TEGL) research project, SGEL is hosting a summer school. This summer school provides a unique space for interdisciplinary conversations on global economic law and sustainability, in the context of accelerating climate change, and the persistence of socio-economic inequalities. The goal of the summer school is to provide a space for PhD researchers & early career scholars (up to 5 years post-PhD) working on law and globalization, to receive feedback on their works-in-progress from peers and UvA faculty members, create a collaborative space around issues of economic law, and ecological and human sustainabilities, connecting local and global contexts.

Event details of Sustainable Global Economic Law Summer School
Start date 18 July 2022
End date 20 July 2022
Time 09:00
Location Roeterseilandcampus - building A
Organised by Ivana Isailovic

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 sgel-fdr@uva.nl. 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
