About the Asser workshop series on ‘Method, methodology and critique in international law’

This Asser lecture and workshop series explores various new ways of ‘doing’ international legal scholarship. This includes a focus on the opportunities, pitfalls and politics of varying methodological approaches, their embedded epistemological, sociological or philosophical commitments as well as the particular technical crafts they demand.

Researchers participating in the workshops will not only gain a better grasp of how to position themselves in an increasingly complex methodological landscape. They will also enhance their understanding of what is at stake in the various ‘turns’ that are continuously performed in international law (such as the ‘turn’ to practice, history, discourse, political economy, critical sociology, materiality, geography or aesthetics to name but a few).
