5. 3rd Hamburg Young Scholars’ Workshop in International Law. The 3rd Hamburg Young Scholars’ Workshop in International Law will be held from 20 – 21 September 2019 in the Warburg Haus in Hamburg, bringing together promising doctoral students and postdocs with a background in public international law and neighboring disciplines. During the workshop, research projects (e.g. a chapter of a dissertation, a draft of an article, case comments etc.) will be discussed among peers. Public international law and common sense serve as a shared basis that will allow discovery of parallel developments and similar issues in different fields of international law. We have limited places for spectators, who are cordially invited to take part in the discussions on the individual presentations and have the opportunity to talk to international PhDs and Post Docs through the workshop. Students are especially invited! Interested persons are requested to register at workshop-pil {at} uni-hamburg(.)de. More information concerning the program are to be found here
