Call for papers: Measuring judicial responses to legitimacy crises

Professor Ole Kristian Fauchald and Postdoctoral Fellow Daniel Behn of PluriCourts invite scholars to submit paper proposals papers for a roundtable discussion on measuring judicial responses to legitimacy crises that a number of international courts and tribunals have experienced in recent years, at the ESIL Conference, 10-12 September. The deadline for submitting a paper proposal is 25 January.

Can we identify trends whereby judicial actors (international judges and arbitrators) attempt to manage (strategically or not) their legitimacy in response to discontent from stakeholders and citizens at large? Fauchald and Behn are particularly interested in papers that identify new or diverse methodologies (quantitative, qualitative and interpretive) for measuring the extent of such judicial responses, their casual pathways, and that are rooted in theories of judicial behavior.

Depending on the results of this call, and its acceptance to the conference, this agora will be presented at the Eleventh Annual ESIL Conference in Oslo, Norway from 10-12 September 2015.
