IACL World Congress: have you got an idea for another workshop?

2017CongressLogoPrevious blogposts have featured the 19 topic-specific workshops in the 10th IACL World Congress 2018 related to the general theme of “VIOLENT CONFLICTS, PEACE-BUILDING AND CONSTITUTIONAL LAW”,  being held in Seoul, Republic of Korea on 18-22 June 2018. Full details are on the congress website, in English and French, along with information on how to submit a paper. Papers may be in either French or English.

In addition to these workshops already designed by the organising committee, the Congress will feature several “open workshops” on the program, which have been proposed and led by by delegates. Further details in English and French are on the Congress website.

Open Workshops are subject to the same guidelines as govern other workshops with respect to the selection of papers and the organization of discussion in the Workshops. Open workshops can be on any topic of constitutional law.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please send it to Your proposal must include

  • your name, country and affiliation
  • a statement of maximum 500 words outlining the topic of the workshop and its themes
  •  a list of at least three participants who have agreed to present papers.

Once you send a proposal, the Open Workshop Sub-Committee in consultation with the Organizing Committee, will select workshop proposals for inclusion on the programme taking into account the following:

  •  the interests of the Organizing Committee;
  •  the need to incorporate Research Groups of the IACL;
  •  the desirability of intellectual, regional and other forms of diversity (including the representation of the global south and gender diversity among workshop chairs); and
  •  the academic merit of the proposals.

 Submission deadline is 15 October 2017We hope the open workshops will be a great opportunity for delegates to help shape the Congress programme.
