Call for Papers–European Junior Faculty Forum–WZB Berlin Social Science Center

Richard Albert, Boston College Law School

We are pleased to share this Call for Papers for a program co-organized by Professor Mattias Kumm, a member of the ICON-S Governing Council.

The WZB Berlin Social Science Center, the European University Institute and the London School for Economics and Political Science invite submissions for the Inaugural Annual European Junior Faculty Forum for Public Law and Jurisprudence to be held at WZB Berlin Social Science Center on June 28-29, 2017.

The forum intends to address public law scholarship from a theoretically informed doctrinal, interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, contribute to the research of junior scholars, and create an intellectual community of European public law scholars. Public Law focused scholarship from other disciplines (philosophy, political science, history, sociology) is explicitly welcome.

The forum brings together a selected group of early career scholars for what promises to be an intellectually rewarding academic exchange. The papers, selected based upon blind peer-review, will be commented on by two senior scholars.

The author must be based in an academic institution in the European Union or in an Associated Country and have obtained the doctoral degree no longer than seven years prior to the application deadline.

For details see the Call for Papers.

Questions about the European Junior Faculty Forum for Public Law and Jurisprudence as well as submissions should be sent to Professor Mattias Kumm’s office via

Deadline for Submissions: April 15, 2017

Decisions will be sent by May 15, 2017. The workshop will be held on June 28-29, 2017 in Berlin at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center.
