Works-in-Progress Workshop

Call for Papers: Constitutional Works-in-Progress Workshop

The UCD Centre for Constitutional Studies invites submissions for its second annual Constitutional Work-in-Progress workshop, which will be held in Dublin, Ireland and online on Friday, December 4th next.

The workshop is open to papers in the areas of constitutional law, constitutional politics or constitutional theory from any jurisdiction. Comparative papers are also welcome.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for intensive reflection on the papers selected, as well as more general dialogue and discussion between scholars across these fields.

"Work in progress" means scholarship that has reached a stage at which it is substantial enough to merit serious discussion and critique but that has not yet appeared in print (and can still be revised after the workshop, if it has already been accepted for publication).

Submissions are limited to one paper per author and should be no more than 15,000 words in length. If the paper is longer than 15,000 words, please identify which portion of the paper you would like to be considered for discussion at the workshop. Submissions should include the subject line: “Constitutional Work-in-Progress workshop submission”.

Interested authors should submit a paper to Eoin Carolan at (opens in a new window)eoin.carolan@ucd.ie by not later than Friday, October 16th.

While the event was held in person last year, it is intended that the 2020 workshop will include an online component for participants who are unable to attend. The event will be held in accordance with the public health guidance in place at the time. Prospective participants should note that this guidance is subject to change.
