mission The Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) at Harvard Law School is a collaborative faculty effort to nurture innovative approaches to global policy in the face of a legal and institutional architecture manifestly ill-equipped to address our most urgent global challenges. Global poverty, conflict, injustice and inequality are also legal and institutional regimes. The IGLP explores the ways in which they are reproduced and what might be done in response. Scholars associated with the Institute are working to understand and map the levers of political, economic and legal authority in the world today.
The Institute focuses on young scholars and policy makers who bring new ideas and perspectives to comparative and international legal research and policy. The IGLP aims to facilitate the emergence of a creative dialog among young experts from around the world, strengthening our global capacity for innovation and cooperative research. We provide a platform at Harvard for new thinking about international legal and institutional arrangements, with particular emphasis on ideas and issues of importance to the global South.
research agenda The Institute is an international collaborative project to foster research and policy dialog about the structure and potential for global governance and international law affecting pressing issues of global regulation and policy. The Institute aims to foster innovative approaches to global policy and political economy, and new thinking about international legal and institutional arrangements. At the IGLP, we are convinced that governance is not only rules, institutions and procedures. Ideas also matter. If for a generation everyone thinks an â€œeconomyâ€? is an input output mechanism to be managed, and then suddenly everyone thinks an economy is a market for allocating resources to their most efficient use in the shadow of a price system, a great deal has changed. That is also governance. We encourage research into the genealogy of governance ideas as they have played out in the fields of international law, international economic law, regulatory policy, human rights and development policy. All of our academic programming is designed to support our research agenda, allowing IGLP scholars to build collaborative teams, deepen their thinking and develop research for publication through multiyear participation in our various conferences and other program formats. We also aim to provide a framework at Harvard for students and faculty interested in pursuing innovative and heterodox research on foundational questions of theory and history as well as pressing issues of global policy. We seek to engage the policy community and to sponsor important transnational dialog. In recent years, we have convened policy-makers and scholars in Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Thailand, Russia and China, as well as in the United States, to engage with our ongoing research activities. We regularly convene international research teams for onâ€?site investigations of policy directions and experience, through site visits and discussions with policy makers, often followed by an academic conference reflecting a first cut on the findings of the research inquiry.
challenging expertise 2
the network The IGLP encourages academic collaboration and progressive research to nurture alternative ideas about international law, society, and political economy. We have developed an expansive global network of scholars and policy makers who share our belief that ideas matter, and our commitment to new voices and viewpoints for thinking about global governance, social justice and economic policy. Our common goal is to better understand how power is exercised in the world today, and how original and critical thinking can transform the ways in which policy experts, intellectual leaders and citizens understand our common global situation.
With more than 150 collaborating faculty at universities across the world, the IGLP global network may be the world’s largest collaborative research network of its kind. More than 600 young scholars from more than 60 countries are alumni of our intensive Workshop. Well over 1,000 young scholars have joined our online network and participate in our research activities. The IGLP network portal on our website is designed to assist all those who share our critical impulse and concerns to share new ideas, events, research, and experiences with others in the field, sharing their work, syllabi and their ideas. The IGLP research community stays in touch by posting on IGLP’s Facebook, following us on Twitter, becoming a member of our LinkedIn group and by signing up to join our mailing list.
scholarly resources Fellowship Program The Fellowship Program offers full or partial student and post‐doctoral fellowship support to a small number of scholars pursuing research in areas related to the IGLP’s ongoing work. Applicants considered for Fellowships are those whose work is challenging, original and focused on progressive and alternative ideas about global law and policy. Often, work of this nature is not supported by mainstream institutional resources, and the IGLP strives to give opportunities for diverse ideas to flourish. IGLP Fellows are integral members of the Institute and provide valuable programming insight and assistance with the execution of our conferences and workshops. The number of Fellowships awarded each year depends upon the available funding.
Visiting Researchers Program The IGLP accommodates a small number of Visiting Researchers and Visiting Scholars each academic year, funded by outside sources. Visiting Researchers and Scholars apply to do research at the Law School for periods of three months to one year. In making selections, the Institute considers the applicant’s background, field of interest, scholarly achievements, availability of Harvard Law School faculty for consultation in the proposed research area, and English language proficiency. Applicants should have completed their basic legal studies with high academic standing.
Applicants at a relatively senior stage of their professional career may be designated Visiting Scholars. This designation is made on the basis of the nature of the applicantâ€™s proposal, the expected duration of their research and prior academic experience. Visiting Scholar applicants are required to be affiliated with a university, research institute or governmental program in their home country.
Individual and Collaborative Research Grants Our Collaborative Research Grant Program provides modest funding to small groups of young scholars who are seeking to carry out substantive research on projects related to the core research mission of the Institute. The IGLP encourages the development of progressive and alternative ideas about international law, society and political economy by supporting provocative and challenging intellectual work that might not otherwise find support from mainstream institutional resources. When funds are available, we are also occasionally able to offer modest research grant support to individual scholars within our network.
Travel Grants The IGLP provides modest travel support to a small number of scholars conducting research in areas closely related to the IGLPâ€™s ongoing work. Applications are open to current Harvard Law School students and alumni. We hope to encourage focus on the life of the mind, on interdisciplinary reading, and on developing the intellectual background to understand and contribute to critical analyses of global law and social justice. Preference is given to current doctoral students and awards are limited to students who have been invited to present their scholarly work at academic conferences.

Visa International, Inc. Visa is a global payments technology company that connects consumers, businesses, banks and governments in more than 200 countries and territories, enabling them to use digital currency instead of cash and checks. Visa has built one of the world’s most advanced processing networks, capable of handling more than 20,000 transactions per second, with reliability, convenience and security, including fraud protection for consumers and guaranteed payment for merchants. Visa does not issue cards, extend credit or set rates and fees for consumers. Visa’s innovations, however, enable its bank customers to offer consumers more choices: pay now with debit, ahead of time with prepaid or later with credit products. In fact, approximately 70 percent of Visa payment transactions in the United States are debit and prepaid, not credit. Governments here and abroad have switched to digital currency instead of checks for benefits payments and purchasing in order to increase efficiency and lower costs, saving taxpayers money. From the world’s major cities to remote areas without banks, people are increasingly relying on digital currency along with mobile technology to use their money any time, make purchases online, transfer funds across borders and access basic financial services — all of which makes their lives easier and grows economies.

IGLP working formats The Workshop
The IGLP Workshop is an intensive residential program designed for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty. Each global Workshop brings together more than 100 young scholars along with more than 50 senior and junior faculty from around the world for serious research collaboration and debate. While in residence, participants review current scholarly developments, reconsider canonical texts and network with colleagues from across the world. Our aim is to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers as they develop innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy, social justice and governance. Intensive writing workshops offer participants the opportunity to receive valuable feedback on their own research from their peers and more senior colleagues in small group settings. Beginning in 2015, the IGLP inaugurated a series of smaller regionally focused workshops. Our first Latin American Regional Workshop was convened in August 2015 with our friends at Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia. We plan to convene our first African Regional Workshop in January 2016 at the University of Cape Town.
The Pro-Seminars Pro-seminars are designed for small groups of scholars engaged in collaboration aimed towards publication. They bring together between ten and fifteen scholars, by invitation and application, working on a common topic. They meet periodically to brainstorm their evolving scholarly writing and advance their work towards publication. Pro-seminars are typically convened by regular Harvard Law School or senior IGLP faculty.
The Colloquium We routinely convene an invitation only Colloquium at Harvard for IGLP Core faculty and guests to strengthen our own work through intensive discussion and engagement with leading scholars from other disciplines. The 2015 IGLP Colloquium took place June 3-4, co-chaired by Sundhya Pahuja of Melbourne Law School and Luis Eslava of Kent Law School and included an interdisciplinary discussion and an advanced Writing Workshop for IGLP faculty and alumni. Earlier Colloquia pursued a range of common themes across research fields. In 2012, the Colloquium focused on the political economy of the modern global order. In 2013, we focused on questions of method raised by the effort to think vertically about the relationship between global and local, macro and micro; and to think horizontally about comparison and differentiation among local or national arrangements. The 2014 Colloquium explored the history and contemporary potential for heterodox and critical approaches to scholarly work in the social sciences. To explore these themes, we invite interested intellectuals from a range of disciplines to join us in Cambridge.
The Conference In 2015 we convened our second international conference at Harvard bringing together over 425 scholars working on innovative approaches to global governance, social justice and economic policy for two days of scholarly exchange. The IGLP global Conference is held every other June at Harvard Law School and is open to all those who are interested in pursuing new thinking about law and global policy, including those who are new to our network as well as IGLP alumni and friends. The conference provides an ongoing opportunity for IGLP scholars to return to Cambridge to present their research, reconnect with peers from across the globe and find new opportunities for collaborative research with other innovative scholars.
Conferences and Workshops The IGLP regularly sponsors conferences and workshops, ranging from informal events at the Harvard Faculty Club to large meetings convening over 150 scholars in Cambridge for intensive discussion. Our most important annual events typically take place in January and June.
Policy Roundtables The IGLP periodically sponsors policy roundtables, ranging in duration from one to three days, concerning specific issues important to one or more of the IGLPâ€™s constituencies, in which participants from industry, the practicing profession, government, and academia discuss topics of common interest in a relaxed setting. In recent years, we have held Policy Roundtables in China, Spain and Russia as well as Harvard on topics ranging from new approaches to regulation in developing economies to financial inclusion and new conceptions of international law.
Student Initiatives The IGLP supports activities organized and led by doctoral students as well as Visiting Researchers at Harvard Law School. Students may prepare presentations based on their current research and invite smaller groups of students to informal discussions. These formats facilitate ongoing debate about a selection of themes of interest to both IGLP and students, and scholars associated with our ongoing work. We regularly provide support for student groups at the school pursuing projects related to our research mandate.
Lectures and Informal Seminars During the academic year, the IGLP sponsors a variety of lectures and informal seminars in which scholars share ongoing research in the areas of global law and policy. These events, which are generally open to all members of the Harvard community, aim to bring the best new thinking about global law and policy to the community for discussion and debate.
the workshop 2015
the workshop 2015 Since 2010, we have convened young scholars each year for intensive collaboration and interdisciplinary debate with senior IGLP faculty from around the world. Participants share their research with one another in small group discussions, review current scholarly developments, reconsider canonical texts and network with colleagues from around the world. Our aim is to strengthen the next generation of scholars by placing them in collaboration with their global peers and introducing them to cutting edge research. Intensive writing workshops provide participants the opportunity to receive feedback on their own research from peers and more senior colleagues in small group settings. Hosted by Hamad bin Khalifa University, a member of the Qatar Foundation, The 2015 IGLP Workshop in Doha was an intensive residential program designed for junior faculty, doctoral and post-doctoral scholars developing innovative ideas and alternative approaches to issues of global law, economic policy and social justice.
Through The Workshop we have brought together 444 young scholars representing more than 80 countries and over 230 universities to work alongside 108 convening faculty from some of the worldâ€™s foremost universities. Over the three years that we have convened the Workshop in Doha, we have convened 251 young scholars from 65 countries to Education City, along with 56 Senior and 68 Junior faculty members from 39 countries and more than 75 universities. At the 2015 Workshop (January 2-11) we continued to seek ways to deepen the network of collaboration among our Workshop alumni as well as continue to strengthen and renew our core program with new themes and new participants. We built on the momentum of our first five Workshops as we strive to develop the premier site for networked innovation in the fields of global governance and economic policy among young scholars and policymakers from across the world.

june 2015 at the IGLP
june 2015 at IGLP In June 2015, the Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) convened its 6th annual residential program at Harvard Law School. IGLPâ€™s June 2015 events exhibited the span of scholarship developed by members of the IGLP network and featured ongoing and new research projects by IGLP alumni and faculty. The 2015 June events offered scholars and thought leaders from across the globe the opportunity to connect with colleagues, to present their research to a global audience, to meet others who share similar intellectual passions, and to engage with innovative scholars from around the world. Together, the June 2015 events brought together over 425 scholars from more than 78 countries at Harvard Law School to share their work over the course of the week. Over the course of the two days of the conference, 80 panels convened to share research, engage in discussion, and collaborate on prominent issues of international Law.
Our biennial global Conference, entitled Heterodox Traditions: Global Law and Policy, was held June 1-2, alongside four mini-conferences showcasing areas of IGLP sponsored research: The Corporation in Global Society; Critical Thinking About Sex, Sexuality, Gender, and Family; Monetary Design in Global Perspective; and Islamic Law and Empire. More than 300 papers were selected for presentation during the 80 panels. Two "streams" running through the Conference celebrated Jerry Frug's work in local government law and focused attention on contemporary legal thought. June 3-4 we convened our annual Colloquium, co-chaired by Sundhya Pahuja of Melbourne Law School and Luis Eslava of Kent Law School, which included an interdisciplinary discussion and an Advanced Writing Workshop for IGLP faculty and alumni. The mini-conferences offered the opportunity to reflect together on collaborative research projects ongoing within the IGLP network. They were: The Corporation in Global Society research group pursues interdisciplinary research and dialogue among scholars, policymakers and advocates interested in the corporation as an institutional form with social, political and economic significance on par the state and the family. Much of the research explores the legal structure and distributional effects of law within global value chains.
Critical Thinking About Sex, Sexuality, Gender and the Family is a scholarly and activist network that brings together critically oriented legal scholars to study a range of human experience that is typically framed out of mainstream accounts of private and public law. It embraces interdisciplinary approaches from the economic to the ethnographic to the aesthetic. This conference drew on deep resources in the critical legal studies tradition for cutting-edge work, and facilitates conversations, mentorship, and scholarly production for all participants. Monetary Design in Global Perspective focuses on money as a matter of design, an institution that societies engineer and transform over time. Papers explored money, monetary systems, and monetary design at any level from theorizing elemental constructions like the unit of account, medium of exchange, and store of value to mapping modern money creation, central banks and shadow banking, and the reconceptualization of sovereign authority that may accompany the proliferation of liquidity at the global level. Islamic Law and Empire explored theoretical approaches to law and empire relating to the Islamic legal tradition and both historical and contemporary Muslim societies. This mini-conference generated a range of stimulating and interdisciplinary discussions on imperial reformulations of Islamic legality and their lasting legacies in local, regional and global legal domains.

june 2015 at IGLP The June 2015 Pro-Seminar
IGLP Pro-Seminars are designed for small groups of scholars engaged in collaboration aimed towards publication. On June 1-2, 2015 the IGLP convened a Pro-seminar on The Role of Law in Structures of Global Production. Over the course of two days the group met to explore the role of law in the construction, operation and governance of global value chains and production networks: structures that have been theorized by sociologists and political economists to map the disaggregated modes of production that comprise much of modern global capitalism. Participants examined how diverse local, national, regional, international and transnational legal regimes, together with cultural norms and business practices, shape the expectations, background entitlements, institutional forms and bargaining positions of various players in global production networks. The group considered how those legal entitlements and normative expectations interact with material factors of production to produce particular forms of commercial relations as well as particular attributions of power and value creation. Finally, the group explored how those legal rules and norms come to shape value chain governance, including the allocation of economic surplus and power, as well as the perceived limits of possible regulatory interventions to distribute rents more equitably or to reduce adverse externalities that result from a networked organization of production. The Pro-Seminar was organized by: Grietje Baars (The Netherlands) The City Law School, City University London, Dan Danielsen (United States) Northeastern University School of Law, Dennis Davis (South Africa) Judge, High Court of Cape Town, Jason Jackson (The Bahamas) Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and Brishen Rogers (United States) Temple University Beasley School of Law.

current research projects Rethinking Law and Finance in the Global Economy This project, organized by Christine Desan of our Advisory Council, focuses on the lessons of heterodox and institutionalist traditions in both economic and legal science for global political economy in the aftermath of crisis. We are particularly interested in the relationships among private law, private ordering, national regulation and opportunities for multilateral governance or coordination. We are exploring the significance of disarticulation and intended inefficiencies in global systems in avoiding systemic risk – when introduced both within the transnational governance of private financial institutions and through regulation. The project focuses on the legal structure of money, credit and financial liquidity. It considers capital dynamics as a matter engineered over time by different government, non‐governmental organizations and private actors, paying particular attention to the ways in which capital dynamics cross borders, studying the domestic and global dimensions of capital dynamics in tandem. During the 2012-2013 academic year, we co-sponsored a graduate student-faculty research seminar on Financial Capitalism, which focused on the structures of finance and money, with an eye towards the financial crisis.
Expertise and Governance
This project aims to strengthen research linking efforts to understand the role of expertise in global governance among IGLP scholars with parallel work undertaken in the Science and Technology Studies field. The focal point for collaboration has been a series of lectures, research workshops and an inter-faculty reading group organized by IGLP Director David Kennedy and Sheila Jasanoff of the Kennedy School. Questions under discussion include: Who are experts, whom do they represent, what are the sources of their authority, and how can expertise be held accountable? What kinds of institutions employ expertise, and what are the organizational characteristics of such institutions? How does the growing global reliance on experts affect the quality, effectiveness, and accountability of public policy and governance? Through readings and/or presentations from several fields—including law, anthropology, history, sociology, and science and technology studies—the reading group considers the ways expertise is defined, constituted, challenged, defended, or defeated in contemporary societies. The research initiative is supported by a seminar jointly taught by Jasanoff and Kennedy at HLS and KSG each spring.
Global Genealogy of Family Laws The rise of colonialism, capitalism, liberalism, modernity and nationalism across much of the world was strongly inflected by the idea that legal and social life divides naturally into two opposite orders – the market and the family. The idea was that the market was or should be governed by contract law that would ideally be uniform across the world and that would enable contracts giving effect to the will of the parties; while the family was or should be governed by family law that gave effect to the spirit of each national people and that enforced interpersonal duties. The idea is so pervasive that it seems inevitable that commercial law will be uniform and western everywhere and that family life, gender and sexuality will be local and “different.” It also is so structural that it helps to explain how political economy imagines itself to encompass everything crucial about global governance while chronically “forgetting” the family, gender and sexuality. This IGLP project, led by HLS professor Janet Halley, seeks to compare the spread of this idea and its various implementations across the world, both in the formation of colonial relations and in the breakdown of the colonial system. We believe that by understanding it genealogically and comparatively, we can better pry away the glue fixing us to it even today.
Global Poverty and Heterodox Development Pathways: Mapping, Method and Critique This project, led by Harvard Law Professor Lucie White and Sciences Po Law Professor Jeremy Perelman, is a collaborative effort among critical law and development scholars to present, map and critique alternative development pathways that are emerging in the confused phase of the post-Washington Consensus. The initiative was launched as a Pro-Seminar in 2012 where members of the group presented short papers that tease out the methodological features of their respective approaches, as well as the distributional effects of the developmental pathways that they identify. This project has explored emerging ideas about organizing political economies that push back against global inequalities. Participants have examined such emerging ideas in sectors of contemporary global political economies, such as finance, agriculture, industrial organization, supranational governance, political movement, and critique.
Bandung and the Global South: 60 Years of Transformative International Law The Bandung Conference of April 1955 brought together twenty-five countries to oppose colonialism and neocolonialism and develop forms of political, economic and cultural cooperation across the Third World. The legacies of the Bandung Conference have long reach within critical traditions in international law. This project brings together scholars who have been influenced by the Bandung Conference and seeks to provide an opportunity for them to reflect on the legacies of the conference that animate their work today and the ways they can think about alternative futures going forward. There are many intersecting and overlapping conversations that Bandung inspires amongst critical international law scholars. Some contributions will provide more historical analysis on the conference and its milieu; others will focus on more contemporary themes that resonate with Bandungâ€™s legacies of South-South cooperation and anti-imperialism. Some ground their interventions in Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL); others may locate it within the many spaces after nationalism in their countries. The project has been defined quite broadly to enable a range of different kinds of contributions with the goal of producing a scholarly volume for publication. This project has been organized by Vasuki Nesiah of our Academic Council with the support of IGLP Docents Luis Eslava (University of Melbourne Law School) and Michael Fakhiri (University of Oregon School of Law). The members of this project convened a series of meeting at Harvard Law School in June 2014 and 2015, which they anticipate leading to a published volume of essays.
Corporate Power in Global Society: Explication, Critique, Engagement, and Resistance This project, convened by Dan Danielsen (Northeastern University School of Law), Dennis Davis (High Court of Cape Town), Griejte Baars (The City Law School, City University London) and Jason Jackson (Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania), explores the role of law in the construction, operation and governance of global value chains and production networks: structures that have been theorized by sociologists and political economists to map the disaggregated modes of production that comprise much of modern global capitalism. Research examines how diverse local, national, regional, international and transnational legal regimes, together with cultural norms and business practices, shape the expectations, background entitlements, institutional forms and bargaining positions of various players in global production networks. The organizers of this project convened a Pro-Seminar at Harvard Law School in June 2015.
individual and collaborative research grants The IGLP Collaborative Research Grant Program is designed to provide modest funding to small groups of young scholars seeking to carry out substantive research on projects related to the core research mission of the IGLP. Through the Research Grants Program, we seek to facilitate innovative group research and writing projects in these fields, and to deepen collaboration among our network of HLS graduate students, IGLP Workshop alumni, and IGLP faculty. IGLP Collaborative Research Grants are designed for small teams of two or more scholars. Preference is given to groups whose ideas or projects emerged out of the IGLPâ€™s Annual Workshop. As funding permits, we have also occasionally be able to support individual research initiatives by members of the IGLP scholarly network with modest grants.
In 2015, the IGLP awarded Collaborative Research Grants to the following projects:
Criminal Legal Structures Convener: Diane Bernard (Belgium) Associate Research & Visiting Professor, UniversitĂŠ St-Louis (Brussels), 2014 Workshop Participant Contributors: Ioannis Kalpouzos (Greece) Lecturer in Law, The City Law School, City University, 2014 Workshop Participant; Itamar Mann (Israel) Adjunct Professor, Georgetown Law, 2014 Workshop Participant; Anne-Charlotte Martineau (France), Senior Research Fellow, Max Planck Institute, 2015 Conference Participant; Immi Tallgren (Finland), Post Doctoral Fellow, University of Helsinki, Faculty of Law; Damien Scalia (Switzerland), Research Fellow, Geneva University Description: This research project questions the priority of criminal law and its perception as the best, unavoidable, automatic reaction to mass violence at a collective and institutional level. The project explores: why is law, and criminal law in particular, perceived as an automatic, legitimate, and exclusive answer to violence? Why is law intrinsically, or factually, better as a reaction to violence than the promotion of economic development?
Food and Finance Convener: Tomaso Ferrando (Italy), Resident Fellow, Harvard IGLP & PhD Student, Sciences Po Law School, 2012 Workshop Participant, 2015 Workshop Participant, 2015 Conference Participant Contributors: Luigi Russi (Italy), Senior Lecturer in Sociology, Azim Premji University; Tania Salerno (Canada), PhD researcher and lecturer at the Anthropology and Sociology Department, University of Amsterdam; Anne Saab (The Netherlands), PhD researcher and part-time teacher, LSE, 2015 Workshop Participant; Anna Chadwick (UK), PhD researcher, LSE, 2015 Workshop Participant, 2015 Conference Participant Description: The Food and Finance collaborative research group was created to connect individuals, academics, institutions, organizations, movements and practitioners whose research is directly or indirectly engages with food and the financialization of the food chain. This group investigates the use of financial intermediaries to finance agricultural development in peripheral countries, the intervention of financial actors in the process of research, production and distribution of genetically modified seeds, and the increasing financialization of food producers.
The Co-production of Weapons and Law Convener: Ioannis Kalpouzos (Greece) Lecturer in Law, The City Law School, City University, 2014 Workshop Participant Contributors: Gearoid O’Cuinn (Ireland), Academic Fellow, Lancaster University School of Law, 2014 Workshop Participant; Itamar Mann (Israel) Adjunct Professor, Georgetown Law, 2014 Workshop Participant; Heidi Matthews (Canada), Residential Fellow, Institute for Global Law & Policy, Harvard Law School, 2011 Pro-Seminar Participant, 2012 IGLP Docent, 2013 IGLP Docent, 2015 Conference Participant; Delphine Dogot (Belgium) Ph.D Candidate, Sciences Po Law School, 2012 Workshop Participant Description: This research project investigates the “cultural lag” argument introduced by sociologist William Ogburn, which claims that developments in technology precede cultural developments which create periods of crisis in which culture must adjust or “catch up” with faster material developments. This group approached this idea from the context of the laws of war, examining historically and theoretically the implicit assumptions of this “legal lag” argument, and the types of political agendas it advances.
Towards an Interruptive History of Islamic Law Grant Recipient: Vanja Hamzić (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Lecturer, SOAS, University of London | 2014 IGLP Workshop Docent, June 2015 Participant Description: This research project identifies factors shaping the Islamic legal tradition that have been overlooked in much Islamic law historiography, including cyclical globalization, vernacular knowledge systems, cultural revolutions, crude periodizations and modernist re-configurations. The project assesses the major sources of Islamic legal historiography, and then focuses on issues befalling scripturalist and new historian works and their authors, including those of early Muslim imperialism and European colonialism. Earlier phases of the project, also supported by IGLP Santander/Doha grants, focused on archival and ethnographic work in Pakistan (2011), Egypt (2012), and Palestine (2013). This latest grant supported a third phase of research: a case study of newly emerging literature on the Mamluk historians of Islamic law and society undertaken through archival work in the United Kingdom, including translation and acquisition of research materials. This grant was generously supported by IGLP’s Leading Sponsor, Santander Universities, as a part of the Doha-Santander Grants Initiative.
Shadowboxing Neoliberal Development – The Governance Role of International Law on Overseas Development Aid Grant Recipient: Karen Rhone (United States), Ph.D Candidate University of Chicago , 2014 IGLP Docent, 2015 Conference Participant, Description: This research project investigates how the emerging body of international development co-operation law (IDCL) act as an instrument of global governance by shaping the role of the state internally within its borders and externally in its relations with other states and international organizations, and its approach to law and development. It investigates whether this resonates with the tasks of law in neoliberal approaches to government. This grant was generously supported by IGLP’s Leading Sponsor, Santander Universities, as a part of the Doha-Santander Grants Initiative.
individual and collaborative research grants Re-thinking Public-Private Engagement in International Security Market and Governance Grant Recipient: Richa Kumar, (India) Ph.D Candidate, Brussels School of International Studies, University of Kent, 2014 Workshop Participant
Description: This research project outlines a new approach for studying the public-private engagement in international security market, driven by the observation that the ongoing transformations in the field elude currently established frames of conceptualization. Existing conceptual frames in this regard – primary example being the concept of ‘industrial complex’ – are built on a presupposition of a clear distinction between the public and the private, and between market and governance processes. This research project identifies the erosion of these distinctions as a significant contemporary transformation in the field of international security and proposes a more nuanced conceptualiation of the relationship between the various actors. The focus of such new conceptualization is on accounting for the complexity and intertwinement of market and governance processes in contemporary international security against the backdrop of which the interaction between actors takes place. This grant was generously supported by IGLP’s Leading Sponsor, Santander Universities, as a part of the Doha-Santander Grants Initiative.
The Role of Ethnicity in the Political Organization of Nation-States Grant Recipient: Mohammad Shahabuddin (Bangladesh) Assistant Professor, Jahangrinagar University, 2010 Workshop Participant, 2011 Pro-Seminar Participant, 2013 IGLP Docent, 2014 IGLP Docent, 2015 Workshop Junior Faculty, June 2015 Participant Description: This research is a part of a broad project that critically examines the role of ethnicity in the political organization of nation-states, and the repercussions such treatment of ethnicity engenders for minorities. It also examines the legal framework – both national and international – within which the dynamic process of construction and reconstruction of identities of both the minority and the dominant groups takes place. The research critically examines the work of the protagonists of Indian nationalism to demonstrate how the liberal nationalism hailed in nineteenth-century Europe was borrowed through a complex process by the nationalist elites in India in the early twentieth century. The project also explore how the centrality of religion in identity formation that led to the partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947 into India and Pakistan co-existed with the emergence of liberal individualism as the most dominant vocabulary of international law around the same time that too informed the construction of nationhood in post- colonial India and Pakistan. This grant was generously supported by IGLP’s Leading Sponsor, Santander Universities, as a part of the Doha-Santander Grants Initiative.
Global Art Law and Cultural Property: Productions of Value Convener: Vivek Kanwar (United States) Associate Professor of Law, Jindal Global Law School, 2014 IGLP Workshop Docent, 2015 Conference Participant Contributors: Deval Desai (United Kingdom) S.J.D. Candidate, Harvard Law School, 2010, 2012 & 2013 IGLP Workshop Participant; Yugank Goyal (India) Ph.D. Candidate, University of Hamburg, 2012 IGLP Workshop Participant, 2014 IGLP Docent, 2015 Conference Participant; Priya Gupta (United States) Associate Professor of Law, Southwestern Law School, 2011 IGLP Workshop Participant, 2012 IGLP Docent, 2015 Conference Participant; Richard Lehun (Canada) Teaching Fellow, McGill University, 2011 IGLP Workshop Participant, 2014 IGLP Docent, 2015 Conference Participant; Lucas Lixinski (Brazil) Lecturer in Law, University of New South Wales, 2011 IGLP Workshop Participant, 2012 & 2013 IGLP Docent, 2015 Conference Participant; James Parker (United Kingdom) Lecturer in Law, Melbourne Law School, 2014 IGLP Workshop Participant, 2015 Conference Participant; Jonathan Walz (United States) Research Associate, The Field Museum, Rollins College, Department of Anthropology Description: This research project explores the potential for new methodologies to contribute to art law: from critical legal studies, science and technology studies, law and economics, archaeology, legal aesthetics, and value-chain analyses. On January 6, 2015, the recipients of this CRG Convened an Art Law event in New Delhi.

fellowship profiles Inaugurated in 2006, the Fellowship Program offers full or partial student and post-doctoral fellowship support to a small number of scholars pursuing research in areas related to the IGLPâ€™s ongoing work. The IGLP encourages the development of progressive and alternative ideas about international law, society and political economy by supporting original, provocative and challenging intellectual work that might not otherwise find support from mainstream institutional resources and which contributes to the emergence of new approaches to international law and global social justice. Scholars appointed as Institute Fellows also assist in the management and direction of the academic programs of the Institute: The Institute is pleased to welcome Mostafa Haider, Onur Ozgode and Mai Taha as 2015-2016 Residential Institute Fellows.
Mostafa Haider (Bangladesh, Sydney University Law School) Enacting Equality and Inequality: The Politics of Global Anti-Poverty Programs
Mostafa Haider is currently a doctoral candidate at Sydney University Law School. Before commencing his PhD, Mostafa taught as a Lecturer at BRAC University Law School. He is an Advocate of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh and has worked on constitutional matters at Dhaka-based law firm Dr Kamal Hossain and Associates. Mostafa holds an LLM from SOAS, University of London, and LLB (Hons) and LLM in international law from Chittagong University. Mostafaâ€™s doctoral thesis is a critical legal intervention into interdisciplinary debates surrounding global poverty. It argues that poverty is understood in these debates through a certain anti-poverty logic. This logic renders conditions of poverty clearly identifiable, manageable and removable by way of a discourse of global poverty eradication. Underlying this interdisciplinary discourse is a politics of law and normativity that authorizes a particular distribution of equality and inequality. Against the logic so identified, this thesis contends that existing legal methodologies are insufficient to understand the juridical politics of global anti-poverty programs or the implications of that politics for the reproduction of global inequality. Combining ethnographic fieldwork on microcredit operations in rural Bangladesh with a theory of politics informed by the work of Jacques RanciĂ¨re, this thesis offers a new conceptualization of the rationality common to global anti-poverty programs.
Onur Ozgode (Turkey / United States, Columbia University) Policymaking-In-The-Wild: Economic Expertise at the Limits of Neoliberalism Onur Ozgode completed his Ph.D in Sociology at Columbia University in February 2015. He specializes in the areas of sociology of expertise, historical, political and economic sociology, and critical social theory. Originally from Turkey, he studied Operations Research, Economics, and Middle Eastern Studies at the undergraduate level at Columbia. Since 2007, he has been a member of the Vital Systems Security research group, a multidisciplinary research collaborator that focuses on emergent forms of expertise concerned with the security of infrastructure systems vital to the economy, such as the financial, energy and telecommunication systems.
Onur’s research traces the emergence of techno-political and -economic problems at the intersection of expertise and governance. As part of this agenda, he investigates the transformation of liberal forms of economic governance as experts problematize and subsequently solve emergent governmental problems. He is currently working on a book manuscript, Governing the Economy at the Limits of Neo-Liberalism: The Genealogy of Systemic Risk Regulation in the United States, 1922-2010. This work examines how systemic (financial) risk was assembled as a monetary pathology of the economy between the 1970s and the 1980s, and how the new systemic risk regulation regime, instituted under the Dodd-Frank Act, rearticulates monetary government with the systemic tools developed for resource and mobilization planning during the New Deal and the Cold War. At IGLP, Onur will be launching a new project that will investigate the connection between neoliberalism and systemic risk at the global scale. Focusing on the formulation of structural adjustment reforms and macro-prudential regulation policies at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, this project will examine the transformation of international economic governance in response to the collapse of the Bretton Woods monetary system in the 1970s, and the subsequent emergence of the global financial system as a governmental entity.
Mai Taha (Egypt, Osgood Hall Law School, York University) ‘A Court of Exception’: International Law, Foreign Capital, and the Mixed Courts of Egypt (1919-1949) Mai Taha was a Visiting Assistant Professor and Catalyst Fellow at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University (2014-2015) before joining IGLP. She recently completed her doctoral degree at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law. Her dissertation was on nation and class subjectivity in international law and its institutions in the interwar Middle East. Her research broadly explores the historical relationship between international law, empire and capital. She received her LLM from the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law, and her M.A. in International Human Rights Law from the American University in Cairo. She worked briefly in international criminal law at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, and as a legal adviser for refugees at Africa and Middle East Refugee Assistance (AMERA) in Cairo. At IGLP, she is working on a new research project on extraterritorial colonial legal institutions, specifically the Capitulations and the Mixed Courts of Egypt from 1875 to 1949. It is a socio-legal history of colonial legal regimes that studies the context of these specifically modern and liberal legal experiments as signposts for a parallel transformation in the political economy of the country. Her project addresses a specific moment in the life of the Mixed Courts, specifically when their jurisdiction expanded radically from cases that involved foreign nationals to include cases involving any foreign interest. This meant, among other things, that foreign companies became legally protected from domestic legislation and judicial scrutiny. Through archival-based research and the decisions of the Mixed Courts, Mai studies how the transformation into capitalism was reflected in law through this modern, yet colonial and capital-driven legal regime. The project shows how extraterritoriality through a colonial legal system created a novel juridical universe to accommodate the expansion of foreign capital coming into Egypt from the metropolis.

IGLP 2014-2015 fellows The IGLP was pleased to host four terrific Fellows in 2014-2015. The IGLP is grateful for their hard work, creativity and dedication in assisting with the planning of the Institute’s academic programs and initiatives, and wishes them the best of luck in their next endeavors! Lina M. Céspedes-Baez (Colombia), Julia Dehm (Australia), Tomaso Ferrando (Italy) and Maja Savevska (Macedonia).
Lina M. Céspedes-Baez (Colombia), Temple University Idealized Women, Idealized Harms: Governance Feminism and the Narrowing of Women’s Experiences in Colombia’s Armed Conflict
Lina M. Céspedes-Baez is a Colombian lawyer, currently pursuing her S.J.D. degree at the James E. Beasley School of Law, Temple University as a Fulbright Scholar. Her research has focused on the interactions between private law, international law, human rights and gender. Lina received her law degree from Universidad del Rosario (Colombia). She has a specialized degree in tax law from Universidad del Rosario, a Masters in Gender Studies from Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and an LL.M. with a concentration in international law from Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University. She has been a law professor at Universidad del Rosario since 2005, where she teaches Obligations (Obligaciones), Sources of Obligations (Fuentes de las Obligaciones), and Legal Theory, and where she has been a member of the university’s Democracy and Justice Research Group since 2011. She is currently part of the Colombian Observatory of Rural Real Property Restitution and Regulation (Observatorio de Restitución y Regulación de Derechos de Propiedad Agraria), an academic initiative among Colombian universities and scholars to monitor and conduct research about the implementation of land restitution measures approved by the Colombian government in 2011 to redress harms to victims of Colombia’s internal armed conflict. Lina’s research explores the impact the theoretical body of radical feminist scholarship has had on the identification, understanding and management of harms women face in the Colombian armed conflict and in transitional justice initiatives in Colombia and other post-conflict settings. She is interested in how radical feminism has narrowed the scope for understanding what constitutes gender-based violence in conflict. Her work explores how radical feminism has limited this understanding to sexual violence and related offenses, and how the overarching employment of the sexual domination matrix is used to explain the full range of harm women experience in this setting. In particular, Lina’s project focuses on how the radical feminist narrative has been deployed in the context of women’s land deprivation and massive displacement in the Colombian conflict, and advances alternative explanations to comprehend this phenomenon through the exploration of the intersection between feminism, theories of property and transitional justice.

Julia’s most recent publication is ‘REDD faces all around’: Implementing reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in Indonesia (Local-Global Journal, 2012). Julia’s research engages with dominant international legal and policy responses to the climate crisis and presents the climate crisis as a critical challenge for the global community. Where collective failure to respond to climate change with effective and equitable policy will accentuate already existing structural inequalities the ecological crisis simultaneously presents an opportunity for rethinking and reimagining global planetary co-habitation. The climate crisis is not simply a scientific or a technical challenge but ultimately a political and ethical social problem in which law and legal responses have the capacity to play a critical role. Julia’s research examines legal responses to the climate crisis through the United Nations Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and other transnational forums in order to ask pertinent questions about the adequacy and equity of these approaches. A fundamental concern of her research is the increased marketization of transnational environmental governance and the centrality of carbon emission trading schemes to international mitigation and adaptation measures and how such responses may foreclose possibilities for ‘environmental justice.’ Her doctoral thesis examines the social implications of a specific carbon offset scheme under the UNFCCC umbrella called Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+) in order to investigate contemporary reconfigurations of imperial control by the global North over forested land and biological resources in the global South.
Tomaso Ferrando (Italy) Sciences Po The Financialization of Global Agricultural Production: How Private Equity Funds, Private Development Funds and Pension Funds are changing the Global Food Chain Tomaso Ferrando is a Ph.D. Candidate at Sciences Po Law School and has been an Italian barrister since 2011. He was also a 2012 IGLP Workshop Participant. During the last two years he has been a visiting researcher at Universidade de São Paulo (Commerce Law Department) and the University of Cape Town (Public Law Department). Tomaso holds a Master of Science in Comparative Law, Economics and Finance from the International University College of Turin, and has been a visiting researcher at both the law and anthropology departments of UC Berkeley. In 2010 he worked as a pro bono lawyer for Racimos de Ungurahui, a Peruvian NGO specialized in providing legal support to local communities affected by development projects and resources extraction. Since that time he has cooperated with local and international NGOs dealing with resource-related large-scale investments, including Greenpeace and Action Aid. When he wears the academic hat, Tomaso takes advantage of his multidisciplinary background to refuse the rigid separation between legal areas, in particular the public-private distinction that occupies Western legal thought and teaching. Tomaso’s doctoral research project starts from the assumption that any critical analysis of global value chains must reckon with the “increasing role of financial motives, financial markets, financial actors and financial institutions in the operation of the domestic and international economies.” As such, legal scholars should analyze the interplay of neo-liberalism, legal globalization and financialization both in terms of their interconnection and in terms of the use of law as a privileged proxy through which the expansion of finance, the internationalization of capital, and the globalization of markets are achieved. During his time as an IGLP Fellow, Tomaso plans to study the increasing financialization of the food regime as an ongoing process with multiple socio-economic implications. In particular, his research aims to determine the role of law in both favoring and constraining the consolidation and worldwide reach of finance within the food Global Production Network. He will focus on three different manifestations of the financialization of the food regime, each characterized by peculiar legal aspects, and relatively underestimated by the general debate: the financialization of agricultural development; the direct involvement of private funds in the food production system; and the role of institutional investors in the global food regime.

IGLP 2014-2015 fellows Maja Savevska (Macedonia) University of Warwick and Universite Libré de Bruxelles A Polanyian Critique of the Political Economy of the European Union Maja Savevska is a Ph.D. Candidate at the GEM PhD School, Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate on Globalization, EU and Multilateralism, where she was awarded a full scholarship by the European Commission. She was also a 2014 IGLP Workshop Participant. Her mobility program includes holding simultaneous registrations at the University of Warwick and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). She received her undergraduate training in political science from Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje. Maja received a full scholarship from the Open Society Institute to participate in an exchange program at the University of Washington Seattle, where she completed a minor in International Relations. She completed an M.Sc. in Global Governance and Diplomacy at the University of Oxford, where she was awarded the Open Society Institute/Foreign and Commonwealth Office Chevening scholarship. Her experience includes TA work at the Univerité Libre de Bruxelles and Humboldt University and extensive NGO work in Macedonia.
Maja’s research interests fall within the remit of critical and heterodox political economy. Her project offers an interdisciplinary intervention that draws on the canonical texts of Karl Polanyi and the burgeoning Polanyian literature. Maja’s main object of inquiry is the morphology of the contradictions that underpin the socio-economic transformation of the European Union. She seeks to juxtapose the disembedding and embedding tendencies of this transformation. First, she is concerned with excavating the self-regulating market logic inscribed in the EU edifice by looking at historical development across three policy fields: competition, financial integration and education, and also by appraising the postcrisis macroeconomic reforms instigated by the Six-Pack, the Two-Pack, the Fiscal Treaty and the Euro-Plus Pact. She argues that the latter represent a missed opportunity for a U-turn in the course of competitive austerity, i.e. a lost kairos. This part of her research aims to problematize the policy solutions implemented in the aftermath of the Great Recession, which are predicated on a crisis narrative that entrenches the monetary orthodoxy. Second, Maja endeavors to examine emerging socio-environmental legislation that, despite its protective invocation, falls short of embedding the economy because it is predicated on deepened commodification. In doing so, she recuperates a critical Polanyian reading that highlights the unresolved ambiguities within these supposedly protective dynamics.
