Professor Sundhya Pahuja has recently launched a major, multi-year collaborative research program on Global Corporations and International Law. This program is designed to rethink how we understand the company-state-international law relationship.  It has historical and contemporary dimensions, as well as empirical and conceptual dimensions.

The purpose of this workshop is to begin to think together about how the research questions international lawyers ask might change if we started with the company/corporation. We invite participants to give a short, exploratory presentation which takes your current research, locates a company or corporation within it, and tells the story from that point.

This is a local workshop designed to focus on scholars based in the UK, alongside scholars from the Melbourne Law School.  We plan to host future  workshops in other regions of the world .  There is no registration fee, and food over the two days will be provided, but there is no general travel support available. There is no online/hybrid element at this workshop, though future events may be online .

The workshop, Professor Pahuja’s visit, and the participation of MLS Faculty and PhD students are supported by the ARC Laureate Program in Global Corporations and International Law, the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, a Cambridge Law Faculty - Melbourne Law School Partnership Grant, the Institute for International Law and the Humanities, and the Leverhulme Foundation.
