4th Young European Law Scholars Conference

Back to Beginnings: Revisiting the Preambles of European Treaties Call for Papers

The 4th annual Young European Law Scholars Conference (YELS) will be held on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 May, 2021, at the University of Zurich. The conference is organised in cooperation with the University of Zurich and the Liechtenstein Institute, and sponsored by the European Society of International Law. We invite young European law scholars (i.e. scholars who have not yet secured a full professorship) to contribute to an academic debate on the topic ‘Back to Beginnings: Revisiting the Preambles of European Treaties’. All scholars whose papers have been selected will be given the opportunity to present their work, and to receive feedback from a distinguished senior European law scholar.

Topic

In recent years, discussions about the crises in, and the future of, Europe have been at the centre of European legal studies. Instead of revisiting these well-researched topics, it seems appropriate to take a step back and focus on the beginnings of European treaties — namely on their preambles. International treaties are commonly preceded by a preamble. European treaties, such as the Treaty on European Union (‘TEU’), the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (‘TFEU’), the EEA Agreement, the bilateral agreements between Switzerland and the EU, as well as the European Convention on Human Rights (‘ECHR’), and the European Social Charter are no exception in this regard. The planned framework agreement between the EU and Switzerland and the future agreement between the EU and UK will, too, most likely be preceded by a preamble. Preambles are usually highly indeterminate, refer to a range of values and ideals, and do not establish concrete rights and obligations. Nevertheless, according to Article 31(2) of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, the preamble forms an integral part of the treaty and must be used in the interpretation of its provisions. The recitals of the preamble reveal both the telos of the treaty and the historical motives of the contracting parties. They set out intentions which have led the parties to conclude the respective treaty, and they provide information on the context out of which the treaty arose. In short, the preamble at the beginning of a treaty defines its purpose and must therefore be given due consideration in legal practice and legal scholarship. In light of the above, we invite young European law scholars to revisit the preambles of European treaties: Which missions do the preambles contain? Have the treaties lived up to what they promise in their preambles? Are Member States and international/supranational organizations on the right track to achieve the set objectives? Are preambles largely aspirational – and potentially empty – phrases? What is the significance of the changes that have been made to the preambles over time, e.g. to the Treaties of the European Union (or before the European Community) or to the ECHR? Do the preambles have to be changed to meet the new challenges of our time?

These questions can be answered in light of all European treaties and the wide range of objectives their preambles set out for their signatories, such as (but not limited to):

⎯ “confirming their attachment to the principles of liberty, democracy and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and of the rule of law” [TEU];

⎯ “affirming as the essential objective of their efforts the constant improvements of the living and working conditions of their peoples” [TFEU];

⎯ “considering the objective of establishing a dynamic and homogeneous European Economic Area, based on common rules and equal conditions of competition and providing for the adequate means of enforcement including at the judicial level” [EEA Agreement];

⎯ “affirming that the High Contracting Parties, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, have the primary responsibility to secure the rights and freedoms defined in this Convention and the Protocols thereto, and that in doing so they enjoy a margin of appreciation, subject to the supervisory jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights established by this Convention” [new recital of the ECHR according to Protocol No 15];

⎯ “being resolved to make every effort in common to improve the standard of living and to promote the social well-being of both their urban and rural populations by means of appropriate institutions and action” [European Social Charter].

Submission

We invite young European law scholars to submit (1) an anonymised abstract (max. 600 words) and (2) a short CV by 15 October 2020 to yels2021@rwi.uzh.ch on any aspect of the overall topic. Contributions shall be submitted and presented in English. Applicants will be informed about the outcome of the selection process no later than 15 November 2020. If successfully selected, full papers (8,000-10,000 words, including footnotes) must then be submitted by 31 March 2021 for circulation among commentators and registered conference members. After the conference, we propose to publish a revised version of the papers, adequately taking into account the feedback received from the commentators and participants.

Conference program

The conference will take place on Thursday afternoon, 20 May 2021, and the full day on Friday, 21 May 2021. Participants will present their papers in thematic panels and receive individual feedback by senior European law scholars, followed by a plenary discussion. We are also happy to announce that on Thursday evening, Professor Juliane Kokott, Advocate General at the European Court of Justice, will give a keynote speech on the overall topic of the conference. The conference organizers plan to reimburse the travel and accommodation expenses incurred by the conference participants presenting a paper, although no guarantee can yet be provided at this stage.

Call for Papers: Migration and Culture: Implementation of Cultural Rights of Migrants

Deadline: 

10/15/20

Deadline for the submission of abstracts: 15 October 2020 

Deadline for the submission of accepted papers: 15 February 2021 

Publication of the Volume: June-July 2021 

edited by Giovanni Carlo Bruno (National Research Council of Italy), Fulvio Maria Palombino (University of Naples “Federico II”), Adriana Di Stefano (University of Catania), Gianpaolo Maria Ruotolo (University of Foggia) 

The volume aims at contributing to the reflection on global cooperation in the promotion of cultural rights of migrants, including the right to participate in cultural life and to enjoy the arts, in the context of the post- COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. 

Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights provide a basic legal framework for their protection and guarantee. As affirmed repeatedly, cultural diversity is a source of mutual enrichment for the cultural life of humankind. The full realization and recognition of cultural rights should be based on the prin- ciples of equality and non-discrimination. But the challenge to ensure cultural rights as being appli- cable to everyone is far from being won, notably when cultural rights of migrants are involved. 

The volume aims at exploring questions connected to international cultural rights and human migra- tion. Legal and judicial practice on the application of internationally recognized cultural rights, and both institutional and civil society activities on the promotion and protection of migrants’ cultural rights may contribute to the ‘mainstreaming’ of cultural rights and of their implementation in the society in change, even in the social and legal context emerging from the consequences of the COVID-10 pandemic. 

Contributions can cover, inter alia, the following areas: 

– The use of cultural rights for enhancing the integration of migrant communities; – The building of an inclusive society, through the promotion of cultural rights of migrants; – Equality and non-discrimination in the enjoyment of cultural rights; – The protection of the cultural identities of migrants; – Gender perspectives in the promotion of cultural rights; – The use of public spaces for the promotion of cultural rights; – The right of migrant communities to hold cultural, artistic and intercultural events; – Cultural components in the protection of the freedom of expression; – Inter-cultural practices within International Organizations. 

The call for papers aims to offer an opportunity for experts, scholars and policy makers, for a critical review of the national and international practice on cultural rights of migrants. 

The Institute for Research on Innovation and Services for Development of the National Research Council of Italy, the Department of Law of the University of Naples “Federico II”, the Department of Law of the University of Catania, and the Department of Law of the University of Foggia are working jointly on migration issues. 

Abstracts of no more than 500 words, written in English or French and including the author’s name and an e-mail address, should be submitted to: migrationandevelopment@gmail.com . 

A one-page curriculum vitae should be attached to the abstract. 

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 October 2020. 

Successful applicants will be notified via e-mail by 30 October 2020 and are expected to produce the final paper (8000-10000 words approx.) by 15 February 2021. 

Papers will be peer-reviewed before final acceptance for publication in an open-access volume, to be published by June-July 2021.

The journey from the first to the ninth edition has been worth cherishing and every passing year has been better and colossal. Hosting it’s 10th edition is like moving to the next orbit. We are one decade down and have forever to go! With this event we level up from National to International level and from traditional mooting to online mooting. This moot will provide a stage for converging to the Indian diversity & the global diversity. Students from across continents will hone their mooting skills during this 3-day program and will have a cross cultural exposure.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to contribute in organising the competition.

The multi-faceted crises sparked by COVID-19 – and its resultant measures on maintaining social distances – seem likely to have profound, potentially long-term implications for workplace learning methodologies within Higher Education (HE) and beyond it. Arguably, a near-dystopian landscape now exists, in terms of defining both essential spaces and ‘the workplace’ (Savvides et al, 2004), exacerbating the various challenges (Nicholls and Walsh, 2007) that already existed in relation to ‘bringing the workplace in’ to HE, learning in the service of others, and in creative and collaborative methodologies.

 

Remote working and blended learning are now backdropped by widespread societal fears and anxieties, economic uncertainties, and physical and mental health concerns. Already-fluid concepts such as ‘learning gain’ (Gossman et al, 2018) and enhanced employability (Wilton, 2014; Pinto and Ramelheira, 2017; Suleman, 2018) seem set to be further modified by circumstances beyond everyone’s control. The implications for tutors, managers, mentors, and learners are yet to be fully predicted or analysed, and will perhaps only gradually be understood or addressed, as they unfold. 

 

For managers keen to take action-oriented, collaborative or participatory approaches however, work-based and service learning has long offered valuable opportunities for meaningful types of ‘experiential learning’ (Washbourne, 1996; Garrick, 1998; Brennan, 2005; Tomlinson, 2008). Internships and work placements represent a key means of improving academic performance (Mansfield, 2011; Knight and Yorke, 2003; Jones et al, 2017) and providing transformative pathways – and pragmatic ‘industrial’ links – with wider, professional ‘communities of practice’ beyond those that might exist within HE (Wenger, 1998; Boud and Middleton, 2003; Eraut, 2011). 

 

At the same time, the massification of HE has increased the numbers of students who are mature-age, first-in-family, international or studying in a second language, from low socio-economic backgrounds or living with a disability. These students compete with typically higher socio-economic, young adult peers for graduate-level work. And yet there is growing evidence that labour market precarity, the influence of capitals and increased competition for work exacerbate social and other disadvantage.  These impacts are likely to be intensified by the longer-term economic impacts of COVID-19, the scale of which “has underlined the precarity of employment, food insecurity, and widespread poverty that already confronted many students” (Harvey 2020).

 

Although the concept of ‘the workplace’ differs across industries, professions, and countries, the task of ‘bringing workplace learning in’ is one that presents common challenges: our landscapes may differ but the issues associated with effecting socially distanced learning and working are, arguably, likely to be not too dissimilar. This multi-disciplinary call for papers is aimed therefore at collecting and collating a wide range of arguments, analyses, essays, and strategies aimed at addressing how we, as HE educators, might best support learners, tutors, and employers during and after the current crisis. We are particularly interested in perspectives from The Middle and Far East and The Global South.

 

Possible themes/questions might include (but are not limited to) the following:

 

  • The management of student fragilities, fears and emotions (Morris and Feldman, 1997; Shapiro, 2009)
  • Lessons for managers, learners, teachers and employers from before/during/after the Lockdown 
  • Supporting and/or shielding essential/key worker HE placement students in times of crisis 
  • New learning and teaching strategies for ‘bringing the workplace in,’ post-COVID-19 
  • Implications for law and policy e.g. human rights, dignity, preventing discrimination
  • (Re) Defining ‘work’ and ‘place(ment)’ in a time of pandemic

National Seminar on ‘Exploring Contours of India’s Foreign Policy in the Era of Globalisation 4.0’ at Amity Institute of International Studies, Amity University, Noida-125

CONCEPT NOTE
Foreign Policy of any nation follows the guiding principle of change and continuity to sustain its existence in the anarchic world system. A better world in terms of development, peace and order corresponds whereas to the ‘continuity’ part of a foreign policy, the portions of timely malleability in its orientation to meet the current asking of global politics denotes the ‘change’ part.

Highlighted roles of India as an important country at all the three levels demand a very robust yet flexible policy orientation from the south block.

In the world of complex interdependence, this is a high time that people of myriad expertise and of foreign policy domain would gather, share and trade their ideas on India’s foreign policy in the era of Globalisation 4.0. to further the contemplation of its challenges and prospects.
