The Role of Courts and Tribunals in Global Governance
The Carlos Chagas Filho Foundation for Research Support of the State of Rio de Janeiro - FAPERJ, linked to the State Secretariat of Science, Technology and Innovation - SECTI, informed, through the Announcement Nº 15/2022, the selection of proposals coordinated by 1) researchers linked to Education and Research Institutions; 2) Representatives of entities of the entrepreneurship and innovation sector; 3) Companies headquartered in the State of Rio de Janeiro; 4) Civil Society Organizations (OSCs), under the program "Support to the Organization of Scientific, Technological and Innovation Events in the State of Rio de Janeiro", Process No. SEI-260003/001841/2022. The Centre was contemplated in the FAPERJ's call for proposals.
The International Conference "The role of Courts and Tribunals in Global Governance" will bring together international and national experts in the field of International Law to discuss the topic from different perspectives in January 2023 in Rio de Janeiro. The event is organized by the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School as part of the activities of the FGV Centre of Excellence on EU-South America Global Governance, under the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.
For this conference, the choice of a hybrid format allows for a wide reach and diverse objectives. On one hand, the participation of international speakers promotes the dissemination of research currently being conducted in European and Canadian institutions to Brazil. On the other hand, Brazilian professors and researchers - from various regions of the State of Rio de Janeiro - will have the opportunity to share their research on the topic with the Brazilian and international academic community who will follow the event virtually. It is expected that this exchange will foster academic research and promote postgraduate activities in Brazil.
The proposal for a conference with the participation of twelve international speakers and fourteen speakers from other regions of Brazil aims to foster connections in the field of International Law and encourage studies and reflections on International Courts and Tribunals. In particular, the conference will stimulate academic debate on current perspectives of International Litigation, its theoretical and practical challenges, including empirical research on large databases. The invited professors can enrich the event by comparing the practices of different forums.
In order to involve postgraduate students in the discussions, the event will also open a call for papers for a PhD workshop on international dispute settlement. Undergraduate students will also be encouraged to participate in the debates.
One of the project's objectives is to promote dialogue between the academic world and society, including policymakers, public officials, and civil society actors involved in international litigation.
Furthermore, the preparation and subsequent publication of conference proceedings in English and Portuguese are planned based on the contributions of the speakers, to be published by FGV Publishing.
