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.
