Society for International Public Law (ICON-S) Annual Conference,
A panel on judicial reasoning and technique: Navigating its Ins and Outs, with Parvathi Menon, Medhi Belkhala, Matina Papadaki and Gleider Hernández
This workshop was designed to facilitate academic exchange amongst the authors contributing to the edited collection under the project. It brought together those scholars who work on the systemic nature of international law and individual actors within it, but also, on how law operates as a social practice and is both constituted by and constitutive of certain social practices. Building on recent scholarship on the notion of international public authority this workshop tried to discern how as a matter of fact, authority is claimed, legitimated and contested within the international legal space. In this respect, part of the workshop engaged with ongoing scholarship on the practices of international lawyers and the roles they discharge within the international legal system, whilst another part focused on how the legal form itself can be instrumentalised so as to confer authority on certain claims.
