International Law Workshop - Call for Abstracts

The Oxford University Faculty of Law and All Souls College will host a one-day, in-person, workshop on 10 June 2022 to mark Judge Giorgio Gaja’s retirement from the International Court of Justice and his long personal and professional association with Oxford.

The workshop is for early career researchers, including doctoral students and independent researchers, working on topics and themes addressed by Judge Gaja in his career as an academic and judge. These topics and themes may include, amongst others, the law of treaties, international institutional law, the protection of community interests, international responsibility, jurisdictional immunities, and international dispute settlement. The idea is to create a space where 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 1 April 2022 to (please indicate ‘Gaja workshop abstract’ in the subject line). If selected, participants will then be asked to circulate a draft of the paper by 27 May 2022. We are able to assist with travel and accommodation up to £200.
