Berlin Colloquium on Global and Comparative Public Law

Rasmus von Schwerdtner
This Colloquium will discuss work in progress by leading contemporary scholars of global and comparative public law, who will discuss their work in person with participants. The focus of most contributions will involve central concepts and ideas relating to public law (such as sovereignty, democracy, rule of law, human rights) generally or as as they play out in specific institutional and doctrinal contexts.
During the summer semester 2017, the Berlin Colloquium will take place:
Tuesdays, 6:15 - 7:45 pm
Texts will be distributed in advance and participants are expected to read and prepare each session to enable them to engage in discussions with the author. The majority of presenting scholars will present in English language, the lingua franca of global public law scholarship. The colloquium is likely to be of particular interest to persons seriously considering writing a dissertation in either legal or political philosophy or public, European or international law.
Papers will be available below closer to the presentations.
