Applications are invited from suitably qualified doctoral and early career scholars to participate in the Laureate Program in International Law at Melbourne Law School during 2017.
The Laureate Program in International Law is funded by the Australian Research Council from 2015 to 2020, and led by Professor Anne Orford. The Program establishes a new interdisciplinary research team, working on a major project entitled Civil War, Intervention, and International Law. That project addresses one of the most pressing questions in contemporary international law and politics: whether, and if so when, it is lawful for external actors to recruit, train, arm, equip, finance, or intervene militarily in support of parties engaged in a civil war. The Program brings together leading scholars in law and the humanities, world-class early career researchers, and innovative practitioners to develop new methods for evaluating the rapidly changing international law on intervention and to enhance the capacity of international law to respond to major social and political transformations.
The Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships are offered annually, and are designed to enable outstanding female doctoral and early career researchers to visit Melbourne Law School and work with the Laureate Program for up to two months. Funding of up to $3000 is available for Kathleen Fitzpatrick Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellows towards the costs of travel to, and accommodation in, Melbourne. Further details about the Laureate Program in International Law and the application process for Kathleen Fitzpatrick Fellowships are available at www.lpil.org
The closing date for applications is 1 July 2016.
