The Women in International Law Network (WILNET) is holding a hybrid Emerging Voices Workshop in Manchester, UK. The aim of the Workshop is to provide a platform to new voices in the field and showcase the important research being undertaken that seeks to rethink international legal imaginaries.

Law is a particularly powerful imaginary and we encourage submissions that unsettle orthodox thinking(/s) about international law, including thinkings that might present themselves as unconventional. Papers may adopt a variety of approaches, from doctrinal, theoretical, critical, empirical to historical perspectives. Applicants are invited to propose new imaginaries and go beyond well-established beliefs, languages, assumptions, or ways of thinking in international law, or else to critically reflect upon this call to think beyond current imaginaries.
