International Interdisciplinary Seminar, Surrey, 21 June 2011


The Surrey International Law Centre (SILC) announces a call for papers for an international interdisciplinary seminar on cultural legitimacy and the international law and policy on climate change that will take place on 21 June 2011 at the School of Law, University of Surrey.

The seminar seeks to contribute to research on the international law and policy of climate change by focusing on the issue of cultural legitimacy.  Beginning from the premise that legitimacy critiques of international climate change regulation have the capacity to positively influence policy trends and legal choices, we seek a range of papers, from across all the disciplines that investigate the link between the efficacy of international legal and policy mechanisms on climate change and cultural legitimacy or local acceptance.

Abstracts for poster presentations, short papers (10 minutes) and research papers (20 minutes) on these themes will be accepted until 15 February 2011. They should be a maximum of 300 words, in English, sent either by fax or by email. Selected papers from the conference will be published in an edited book.
