PhD Seminar: ‘IR and Reflexive Sociology: The Case of International Law’

February 27, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

PhD Seminar: “IR and Reflexive Sociology: The Case of International Law”

Organised to complement the PhD seminar series on IPS, in February 2019 there will be a PhD seminar on “IR and Reflexive Sociology: The Case of International Law”. The seminar will begin with a short talk by Professor Madsen on his research in reflexivity and law, presenting some of his strategies. We will then open the seminar up for a more interactive part based on questions arising from the students’ own research, from the two articles that will be circulated in advance, and his presentation. 
Mikael Rask Madsen’s research is focused on globalization and the role of legal institutions and professionals in these processes, including: International Courts and their evolutions and challenges, the role of legal elites in the globalization, the development of the legal profession and legal knowledge and power. His current research concerns the special interaction between law and global integration, the role and power of lawyers in globalization, the increased importance of supranational legal institutions and more generally, the international transformation of law and authority towards networked expertise. He is currently the Director and PI of iCourts – the Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre of Excellence for International Courts.
