CfP: ICON•S 2015 “Public Law in an Uncertain World” in New York City

ICON-S-logoThe International Society of Public Law (ICON•S) invites submissions for papers and fully-formed panels for its 2015 Conference on “Public Law in an Uncertain World”. The Conference will take place in New York City, on July 1-3, 2015, at the New York University School of Law.

The purpose of this conference is to explore and evaluate the function and limits of public law in our uncertain world in relation to war and peace, human rights, religion, state-building, constitution-making, formal and informal institutional change, revolutionary movements, national security as well as but not limited to the economy, the environment and the challenge of new technologies.

ICON•S welcomes both individual papers as well as proposals for fully-formed panels, from both senior and junior scholars (including advanced Ph.D. students) as well as practitioners. Proposals may focus on any theoretical, historical, comparative, empirical, doctrinal, philosophical or practical perspective related broadly to public law, including administrative law, constitutional law, criminal law, or international law in all of their possible domestic, transnational, supranational, international and global variants related to the 2015 Conference theme.

All submissions must be made on the ICON•S website by April 10, 2015. More information is available at
