Call for Papers: International Law Workshop in Honour of Judge Theodor Meron

The Oxford University Faculty of Law, All Souls College, and Trinity College will host a one-day, in-person, workshop on 21 June 2024 in honour of Judge Theodor Meron, Visiting Professor of International Law at the University of Oxford and Honorary Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford.

Public International Law

The workshop is for early career researchers, including doctoral students and independent researchers, working on topics and themes addressed by Judge Meron in his career as a lawyer, academic, and judge. These topics and themes may include, amongst others, issues relating to sources of international law, notably treaties and custom, international humanitarian law and international criminal law, human rights law, international institutional law, and literature and law, as well as questions relating to the international judicial function. The idea is to create a space where early career researchers working on these topics enjoy close, substantive engagement with their work in progress. Nine presenters will be selected, each of whom will be paired with a respondent for the workshop. We encourage submissions from researchers with identities and from backgrounds under-represented in international law.

Abstracts of no more than 400 words together with a short resumé should be submitted by 17 April 2024 to (please indicate ‘Meron workshop abstract’ in the subject line). If selected, participants will then be asked to circulate a draft of the paper, which can still be rough/in progress, by 1 June 2024. We should be able to assist with accommodation and travel costs up to £250.
