This is a reminder that we invite international law women scholars and advanced PhD candidates to the second conference on the Creation of International Law, to be hosted by the University of Wisconsin on April 4-5, 2014 as part of its Wisconsin International Law Journal annual symposium. The intention is to continue and expand the network of women scholars and practitioners that was launched in 2009 in Norway to support their engagement in public international law. We invite creative thinkers and engaged practitioners to partake in a contemplative exchange of ideas and reflections on the current state of affairs and possible directions for the future. The theme of the second conference is: Exploring the International Law Components of Peace.
The pursuit of peace remains a global challenge and there is a need for reflection as to how the current international public law institutional and normative structure functions and what are the gaps? Papers from all the sub-fields of International Law are welcome. Papers may pursue normative, empirical, or theoretical perspectives.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is *October 1, 2013.* Please send abstracts to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Scholars whose abstracts are selected for the symposium will be notified by *November 1, 2013*. Complete papers from those selected are due on *March 1, 2014*.
