EUI Doctoral Forum on International Law
European University Institute (Florence, Italy), Villa Salviati, 10 June 2019

The Law Department of the European University Institute (EUI) is delighted to share this call for papers for an intensive one-day Doctoral Forum on international law, taking place in Florence on 10 June 2019, and sponsored by the European Society of International Law (ESIL). 

The Forum allows PhD candidates to present their research and receive feedback from peers and EUI faculty members. The Forum welcomes submissions on any sub-field of international law, especially human rights, international economic law, and international dispute settlement. Researchers performing multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary analysis are in particular encouraged to apply. 

To apply, please send an abstract of maximum 600 words and your CV to by 15 February 2019. 

If selected, we will ask you to submit a short paper of maximum 6000 words by 15 May 2019. The paper may be a partial draft of the final paper. Please note that failure to share a short paper with the Forum organisers may result in exclusion from the Forum. All participants will receive the papers in advance and will be expected to have read them prior to the start of the Forum. 

Unfortunately, the Forum cannot cover expenses related to travel and accommodation for all participants. However, the Forum will offer a limited number of scholarships to contribute to the travel expenses of participants who do not have access to sufficient funding. An important objective of these scholarships is to ensure a balanced group of participants in terms of nationalities and home institutions. To apply for a scholarship, please include in your application, in addition to your abstract and CV, a short motivational letter stating why you are not able to cover your travel expenses, how much funding you would need, and how participation in the Forum fits your research plans. 

A presentation on the post-doc opportunities offered by the Max Weber Programme of the EUI will take place on 10 June 2019. 

The Forum will provide lunch and coffee breaks on the day of the conference; social activities will be organized on the evenings of 9 and 10 June. 

Please take note of the following timeline: 
15 February – deadline for submission of abstracts and scholarship applications
1 March – applicants will be informed of the results of the selection process
15 May – deadline for submission of short papers
10 June – forum event 

Confirmed EUI faculty participants: Prof. Jürgen Kurtz and Prof. Martin Scheinin.

Organisers: Martin Christensen, Margherita Melillo, and Mike Videler (researchers at the EUI Law Department).
