Announcements: Conferences at Oxford and Cambridge; Position at Durham.

Published on March 31, 2013        Author: 

1) BB_LogoThe 2013 Annual Conference of the British Branch of International Law Association takes OxfordImageplace in Oxford on April 12 & 13. The theme is “The Changing Face of Global Governance: International Institutions and the International Legal Order“. Registration for the conference is through the conference website. The Keynote Lecture and the Inaugural Oxford Global Justice Lecture will be delivered by Patricia O’Brien, UN Under-Secretary General for Legal Affairs. Accommodation  at Pembroke College Oxford can be booked here with code “ILA2013”.

2) Durham University seeks to make an appointment in Climate Change Law and Governance. Details of the post are available here. This appointment is part of a major investment in climate change at Durham, represented by the imminent founding of the Climate Impact Research Centre (CIRC), bringing together experts across multiple disciplines. The holder of this post will primarily be based in Durham Law School.

3) Abstract submissions are sought for a conference on Interpretation and International Law, to be held at the University of Cambridge on August 27 2013, with the support of the Faculty of Law and the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law. The relevance of interpretation to the academic study and professional practice of international law is inescapable. Yet interpretation in international law has not traditionally been examined as a distinct field. Given that international law is constituted, in practical terms, by acts of interpretation, there is a need for greater methodological awareness of interpretive theory and practice in international law.

Proposed panels include: interpretation and legal doctrine; interpretation and the sources of international law; interpretation and the interpreters; interpretation and the international legal order; interpretation and cultural contingency; and interpretation and indeterminacy.

Keynote presentations include: Judge Sir David Baragwanath (President, Special Tribunal for Lebanon); Professor Andrea Bianchi (The Graduate Institute, Geneva) and Ingo Venzke (University of Amsterdam).

Abstract submissions must be between 300-500 words in length and should be accompanied by a short resume. Please submit applications to cambridgeinterpretation {at} gmail(.)com by 1 May 2013. Please address all other enquiries to Daniel Peat (dcp31 {at} cam.ac(.)uk) or Matthew Windsor (mrw48 {at} cam.ac(.)uk). Successful applicants will be notified by late May 2013.
