The Institute for Global Law & Policy (IGLP) at Harvard Law School announces its first biannual international conference, "New Directions in Global Thought," to be held in Boston on June 3-4, 2013. According to its website, IGLP "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." Panel and paper proposals on governance, inequality, conflict, and the rule of law are invited. More information is available here.
(The conference is scheduled to occur immediately after the 2013 Law & Society meeting in Boston, which I blogged about here.)
