3. ILaW Discussion on ICC Decision in the Al-Bashir Case. ILaW (International Law at Westminster), in co-operation with the ILSA at Westminster Chapter, is organising a rapid response event to discuss the recent decision of the International Criminal Court on head of state immunity in the Al-Bashir case. The event will take place on Wednesday 19 June 2019, 17.30 – 19.30 at the University of Westminster (4-12 Little Titchfield Street, Room 2.05C). It will gather scholars and practitioners to address the many contentious issues that are at the centre of the decision, taking into account customary international law, the mandate of the International Criminal Court in the fight against impunity, and the relationship between the Court and the UN. Register interest here.
4. Call for Papers: Exploratory Workshop on Constitutions of Value. This workshop, which will take place 12 – 13 December 2019 at the University of Würzburg, has been convened by Isabel Feichtner (Würzburg) and Geoff Gordon (The Hague). This symposium intends to take a view of value not as exogenous to law and society, not merely something to be identified, promoted and protected by law. Rather, it will begin from a view of value, value production and measurement as endogenous. It is proposed to engage in a constitutional study of value that not only looks to the role of law, but also to the material dimensions of value production. The organisers seek to examine the ways in which value is (co-)constituted, structured and shaped by law, politics, science and technology, and thus hope to advance understanding of the foundational role of value in political economy as well as the law like effects of values and value measurements so constituted.
