About the Berlin Colloquium

The Berlin Colloquium focuses on work in progress by leading contemporary scholars of global and comparative public law. The invited guest speakers discuss their work in person with participants. Most contributions concentrate on central concepts and ideas relating to public law (such as sovereignty, democracy, rule of law, human rights) generally or as as they play out in specific institutional and doctrinal contexts.

Texts are distributed in advance and participants are expected to read and prepare each session to enable them to engage in discussions with the author. The majority of presenting scholars present in the English language, the lingua franca of global public law scholarship. The colloquium is likely to be of particular interest to persons seriously considering writing a dissertation in either legal or political philosophy or public, European or international law.
