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.

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.

Keynote by Usha Natarajan, Edward W Said Fellow at Columbia University 

Corinne Blalock, Executive director of the LPE project & Associate Research Scholar at Yale Law
