Call for Papers - Courts and Politics Research Group 2020 Spring Workshop


Due Date: Friday, March 27, 2020


The Courts and Politics Research Group invites the submission of abstracts for its fifth annual Spring Workshop, to be held at the University of Guelph on Thursday, May 7, 2020.


The goal of the workshop is to bring together faculty and graduate students who study in the field of courts and politics to present scholarship or works-in-progress, (including MRP/thesis chapters) to a group of individuals with shared interests and expertise, in a relaxed and friendly setting. There is no specific theme for the workshop; instead we invite scholars to present work that falls into the broad field of courts and politics, constitutionalism, and law and politics. We encourage the submission of scholarship that is in early stages or is unpublished.


This year’s workshop will feature a keynote address by Dr. Paul Daly, Chair in Administrative Law and Governance at University of Ottawa Law: “The Vavilov Framework for Canadian Administrative Law: Institutional Design and the Rule of Law.”

Those interested in presenting work are asked to send paper titles and short abstracts (200 words or less) to Danielle McNabb (dmcnabb@uoguelph.ca), Kate Puddister (kpuddist@uoguelph.ca), and Emmett Macfarlane (courtsandpolitics@gmail.com), workshop organizers.


Scholars that wish to attend, but do not want to present a paper are asked to RSVP to Danielle McNabb (dmcnabb@uoguelph.ca).


The Courts and Politics Research Group is composed of scholars who study courts, constitutions and the law from a political science perspective. It is designed to connect political scientists in the region of Southern Ontario: http://www.courtsandpolitics.org/


We hope you can join us in Guelph for what promises to be an interesting and productive workshop.
