About the workshop

An in-person only workshop held on Tuesday 9 July 2024 at Bristol Law School, Frenchay Campus, UWE Bristol, organised by the Research in Public International Law (RIPIL) research group.

The aim of the event is to provide a platform for PhD candidates to present and discuss their work in progress with their peers, and network.

The focus is on the PhD candidates and is, therefore, run for and by them. Some senior academics will, however, attend to provide additional feedback.


The workshop accepts two types of participants: presenters and attendees.

A presenter must be currently

  • undertaking a PhD or an equivalent research degree at the time of application
  • working on ius ad bellum or ius in bello issues.

An attendee must be

  • a PhD candidate or an early career researcher (i.e., a person awarded their PhD in 2021 or since) who has a particular interest in ius ad bellum or ius in bello issues.


Attendance at the workshop – whether as a selected presenter or registered attendee – will be free for everyone.

No funding is available for the participants, including presenters, but refreshments and lunch will be offered at the venue.

Event format

To facilitate discussion between the PhD candidates, this event will be in-person only. The event will be based on presentations by successful applicants.

Work in progress being presented should be in a relatively advanced research stage. It could be part of a thesis with a clear argument or a separate piece of research.

Each presentation will be followed by the review and feedback by an allocated PhD candidate, acting as a discussant, who will be agreed in advance from amongst the pool of all participants, after presenters have been selected. The initial discussion between the presenter and the discussant then will be followed by a more general discussion 

Application process and registration

Applications to present will be evaluated based on a 500-word abstract. Applications, including the abstract, must be submitted via this form by Sunday 9 June 2024. Applicants will be informed if they are successful by Thursday 20 June 2024.

Attendees must register using the same link by Sunday 30 June 2024.

All participants (presenters and attendees) will be asked to provide a short biography when applying/registering to be circuited just ahead of the workshop to facilitate the networking aspect of the event. Note that unsuccessful presentation applicants can still subsequently register as attendees if they wish.
