Call for papers – The IEL Collective Inaugural Conference: Disrupting Narratives and Pluralising Engagement in International Economic Law Scholarship, Teaching and Practice | University of Warwick, UK | 6 – 7 November 2019

The International Economic Law (IEL) Collective will host its inaugural conference at Warwick University, UK, on 6 – 7 November 2019.

The IEL Collective was launched to provide a space for critical reflection in the growing field of international economic law. It aims to explore how epistemological and methodological diversity can contribute towards the development of a more holistic landscape of scholarship on law and the governance of the global economy. The IEL Collective aims to stimulate conversations about plurality, representation and criticality in researching, teaching and practising international economic law and spark new conversations about the future of the discipline.

The conference aims to bring together scholars as well as other stakeholders, including policymakers, campaigners and practitioners, to contribute towards the development of The IEL Collective and to springboard and further new and existing conversations about the past, present and future of the discipline.

The IEL Collective welcomes papers and contributions that speak to the themes of the Collective and invite critical and contextual reflections of teaching, research and practical engagement with the broad sphere of international economic law. This can include explorations of thematic or substantive areas of international economic law, broadly conceived; contributions towards or challenges of methodological diversity within the discipline; engagements with the policy and practice of international economic law; and issues relating to the engagement of a broader community of scholars, students and stakeholders in the field of international economic law.
