The journal International Organization and Northwestern University’s Buffett Center for International and Comparative Studies invite applications for a workshop to be held June 12-13, 2015.
Karen Alter and Erik Voeten, with the support of IO’s editorial board, will convene this workshop. Interested participants should submit a proposal of no more than 500 words by December 1, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We especially welcome the following types of proposals:
Studies that examine whether states, international institutions, firms or other nonstate actors act differently in the shadow of adjudication
Studies comparing politics in non-judicialized to judicialized contexts
Studies of the impact of judicialization across countries, regions or issue areas
Studies that analyze whether and when adjudicators are becoming consequential creators of international law
Examinations of the potential counter-responses to the increased authority of judicial institutions. For example, how and when do state actors successfully seek to influence adjudicators or otherwise reduce their jurisdiction or authority?
Analyses of whether international law differentially influences states depending on how much authority domestic judicial bodies have to utilize international law.
Inquiries into the larger theoretical implications of the emergence of these judicial actors.
Studies that provide generalizable insight into the practices, processes, politics and decision-making of adjudicatory bodies that have an international or transnational jurisdiction.
