Fifth Annual ASIL Research Forum
October 23-24, 2015, Washington, DC
The American Society of International Law calls for submissions of scholarly paper proposals for the ASIL Research Forum to be held in Washington, DC
The Research Forum, a Society initiative introduced in 2011, aims to provide a setting for the presentation and focused discussion of works-in-progress. All ASIL members are invited to attend the Forum, whether presenting a paper or not.
Papers may be on any topic related to international and transnational law and should be unpublished (for purposes of the call, publication to an electronic database such as SSRN is not considered publication). Interdisciplinary projects, empirical studies, and jointly authored papers are welcome.
Proposals should be submitted online using the form below. Interested paper-givers should submit an abstract (no more than 500 words in length) summarizing the scholarly paper to be presented at the Forum. Abstracts must be submitted in MS Word and include 1) cover page with the name, institutional affiliation, professional position, and contact information for the author(s) and 2) a separate abstract that does not include the author's name. Review of the abstracts will be blind. Papers that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered. Notifications of acceptance will go out in mid-July.
Submission deadline is June 22, 2015
Papers accepted for presentation will be assembled into panels. The organizers welcome volunteers to serve as discussants who will comment on the papers. All authors of accepted papers will be required to submit a draft paper four weeks before the Research Forum. Accepted authors must commit to being present on both Friday, October 23 and Saturday, October 24, 2015. Draft papers will be posted in advance of the Forum on an asil.org website accessible only by participants in the Forum.
