ICL Journal Conference 2016


The Vienna Journal on International Constitutional Law is dedicated to a wide range of subjects including in particular European Constitutional Law, Public International Law, the Constitutionalization of International Law, the Internationalization of Constitutional Law, the Migration of Constitutional Ideas, Legal Theory, and Comparative Constitutional Law. By linking these select perspectives, the Journal endorses an approach towards a coherent understanding of International Constitutional Law, thus preparing the ground for novel answers to the challenges of a changing global legal framework.

For its 10 year anniversary the Journal will host a conference dedicated to its very scope: The one day event to be held on

23 September 2016


Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU)

will focus on the concept of

International Constitutional Law.


We are grateful that Frederick Schauer (David and Mary Harrison Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law) and Alexander Somek (Professor of Legal Philosophy, University of Vienna) agreed to share their thoughts on the topic in two Keynote Lectures. Additionally, we encourage academics from around the globe to participate in this event and to introduce us to their ideas on the concept of ‘International Constitutional Law’, its origin, its meaning, its scope, and overall its heuristic and doctrinal value.

We are looking forward to receiving abstracts of no more than 300 words accompanied by your CV until May 15 and, of course, to meeting you soon in Vienna. Accepted papers will be included in ICL Journal Vol 11. All applicants will be notified by May 31. Please be advised that travel expenses cannot be covered.
