CALL FOR PAPERS 

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF INTERNATIONAL LAW 

INTERNATIONAL COURTS AND TRIBUNALS INTEREST GROUP 

2022 WORKS-IN-PROGRESS CONFERENCE 

Friday, February 4, 2022 

The International Courts and Tribunals Interest Group (ICTIG) of the American Society of  International Law (ASIL) is pleased to announce a call for papers. ICTIG will be holding a  Works-in-Progress Conference on Friday, February 4, 2021. The conference will be entirely  virtual and will be hosted by the UIC Law School in Chicago, Illinois. 

We are accepting submissions on any topic related to international courts or tribunals. 

Deadline and Submission 

Please email an abstract (of 500 words or less) in Word or PDF format to fords@uic.edu. The  deadline to submit an abstract is January 7, 2022. Decisions will be made by January 14,  2022. If your paper is selected for presentation, please be prepared to submit a draft of your  paper on January 21, 2022. We anticipate selecting between six and eight papers for  presentation. 

Works-in-Progress 

“Work-in-progress” means scholarship that has reached a stage at which it is substantial enough  to merit serious discussion and critique but that has not yet appeared in print (and can still be  revised after the workshop, if it has already been accepted for publication.) 

The Conference 

The accepted papers will not be presented by their authors at the workshop. Rather, each paper  will be introduced and discussed first by a commentator before opening the discussion to the  other participants. Each of the participants is expected to have read and to be prepared to discuss  all the papers. Participants will be asked to serve as the commentator for one of the other papers.  The author of each paper will be given an opportunity to respond and ask questions at the end. 

Virtual Conference 

This will be an entirely virtual conference. All presentations and discussion will take place via  Zoom meeting (or some similar system). Participants will be provided more details before the  conference. There is no registration fee. 

For any questions or inquiries please contact Professor Stuart Ford at fords@uic.edu
