Call for Proposals | ICON•S Committee on New Directions in Scholarship

The International Society of Public Law (ICON·S) has established a Committee on “New Directions in Scholarship”. Its main objective is to facilitate the dissemination of works that have advanced the knowledge of Public Law and to launch inclusive initiatives in public law research.

Following the success of ICON·S Live, the Committee is already organizing a series of monthly virtual events dedicated to new books in public law titled “New Scholarship Showcase”.

The Committee invites book proposals to be considered for the “New Scholarship Showcase” book discussion panels. We welcome books from scholars of all ranks around the world, on any topic in Public Law widely conceived especially in public international and administrative law. 

We are especially committed to advance diversity and inclusiveness. We particularly welcome book proposal from early-career scholars and from underrepresented groups in academia, especially people of color and women.


To propose books for the committee to feature in its “New Scholarship Showcase” events, please email: Proposals should include the book title, author’s name, and a short (3-5 sentence) explanation of the book’s contribution to the field. Self-nominations are welcome, as are proposals for edited volumes. The committe will consider books published in 2020 or later that are published in English or Spanish.

Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis, but preference will be given to those submitted by 28 February 2022.
