Sustainable and Global Economic Law Summer School

Jul 18, 2022

Sustainable and Global Economic Law is holding a Summer School in Amsterdam this summer. Applications due by June 4th (extended from May 31).

The Sustainable Global Economic Law (SGEL) summer school provides a unique space for interdisciplinary conversations on global economic law and sustainability, in the context of accelerating climate change, and the persistence of socio-economic inequalities. The goal of the summer school is to provide a space for PhD researchers & early career scholars (up to 5 years post-PhD) working on law and globalization, to receive feedback on their works-in-progress from peers and UvA faculty members, create a collaborative space around issues of economic law, and ecological and human sustainabilities, connecting local and global contexts.

It will feature thematic sessions, roundtables and reading groups, exploring the links between global economic law, sustainability and environmental justice and various forms of inequalities and exclusions, and the meanings of ‘just transitions’ in law, small writing workshops, and sessions on career development, as well as activities in Amsterdam connecting the city to global dynamics, such as colonization, international trade, the fossil fuel economy and counter-hegemonic dynamics.
