ICON-S, the International Society of Public Law, invites paper and panel submissions for its 2017 Annual Meeting to be held in Copenhagen on July 5-7, 2017.
The overarching theme of the ICON-S 2017 Annual Meeting will be “Courts, Power, Public Law”. The expanding role of courts is arguably one of the most significant developments in late-20th and early-21st century government. What explains this increasingly dense network of judicial control over public power, and transnational judicial interaction? To what extent do courts succeed in achieving their goals, and under what conditions?
ICON-S welcomes proposals for fully-formed panels as well as individual papers dealing with any aspect of the Annual Meeting’s theme. However, paper and panel proposals need not be limited to that theme, and may focus on any theoretical, historical, comparative, empirical, jurisprudential, ethical, behavioral, ethnographic, philosophical or practical, policy-oriented perspective related to public law, including administrative law, constitutional law, criminal law, immigration and citizenship law, human rights, and/or international law in their entire varieties, and may address domestic, subnational, national, regional, transnational, supranational, international and global aspects of public law.
All submissions must be made through the ICON-S website (here) by February 15, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by April 1, 2017.
