Call for Papers: After the Economic Crisis: The Small State as a Problem or Solution? – Dublin, Ireland

The UCD Constitutional Studies Group, in association with the Young Comparativists Committee of the American Society of Comparative Law, invites submissions for a workshop on ‘After the economic crisis: the small state as a problem or solution?” to be held in Dublin on September 5-6, 2014.

The workshop will bring together a mixture of junior and senior scholars from several disciplines to discuss how the economic, social and civic difficulties of recent years have manifested themselves in pressure for constitutional reform in smaller states – from constitutional reforms in Ireland and Iceland to independence campaigns in Scotland and Catalonia. A number of bursaries are available to cover travel and accommodation expenses associated with participation in the event. A selection of the best papers presented will also be considered by the Boston College International & Comparative Law Review for publication as a special symposium edition in Spring 2015.

Abstracts or proposals for panels must be submitted to constitutional[@] by Monday May 26th, 2014. Full details of the call for papers are available here. im
