Under the direction of Professor Eduardo Oteiza (La Plata National University, Argentina) and Professor Burkhard Hess (Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law), the 4th edition of the IAPL–MPI Summer School will take place at the MPI Luxembourg on 27-30 July 2020.
The Summer School aims at bringing together outstanding young post-Doc researchers dealing with international and comparative procedural law as well as with other relevant dispute mechanisms for civil disputes. By way of exception, researchers at the very final stage of their Ph.D. project may also be admitted.
In 2020, the Summer School will focus on the interplay of global tendencies with local traditions in procedural law. This interplay may be analyzed from different perspectives, such as the cross-fertilization in lawmaking processes and between regulatory concepts or the impact of innovative methods and tools in procedural law. The Summer School also intends to reflect on the cultural dimension of litigation and dispute resolution mechanisms and on the role of local culture in shaping the approach to procedural law.
The application form and further information on the Summer School’s research focus are available here.
The deadline for applications is 31 January 2020.
