The European Central Bank (ECB) is seeking applications from established or promising younger researchers for up to four legal research scholarships to be awarded in 2017. The Legal Research Programme was launched in 2008 to foster analysis of areas of law relevant to the ECB’s statutory tasks, and to establish closer contacts with scholars. Each scholarship is endowed with a grant of EUR 10 000, which is not compatible with any other fellowships or grants received from third parties in relation to the research project for which it is awarded, unless the ECB has expressly provided its consent.
The research topics are: (1) Dealing with set-off risk in financial collateral arrangements and securities; (2) Liability and accountability for policies announced to the public and for press releases; (3) Relationship between supervision / resolution and monetary policy / supervision (issues of separation, overlapping, conflict of competence and complementarity); (4) The mandate of national state auditors vis-à-vis national supervisory authorities (evaluation of the relevance of the so-called audit gap; (5) Securities ownership rules in the EU: national regimes, transnational investments? (6) Inviolability of the ECB’s archives under the Protocol of the Privileges and Immunities of the European Union; (7) Judicial review of central bank policies and decisions, including in the area of monetary policy, payment systems, financial stability, resolution and supervision, in a comparative perspective; and (8) Scope for financial stability considerations in the fulfilment of the mandate of the ECB/ Eurosystem.

CALL FOR PAPERS REMINDER: DEADLINE 30 JUNE 2015
The International Economic Law Interest Groups American and European Societies of International Law of the together with the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law are pleased to announce a joint 2015 Works-in-Progress Workshop on: The Future of Transatlantic Economic Governance in the Age of the BRICS, 11-12 December 2015, to be held at the Max Planck Institute Heidelberg, Germany.
Workshop theme: As the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership negotiations have revealed, in some ways the developed economies of North America and Europe have never been more interested in creating a cooperative system of economic governance. In other ways, however, the relationship between these countries has never faced more challenges, as new economies disinclined to accept the trade rules and regulatory cooperation efforts of the developed world have ascended to new economic rights and have asserted new legal authority. Moreover, some of the traditional strengths of incumbency, such as a powerful currency and traditionally strong representation in international organizations, have come to look more like liabilities. This emerging economic order has presented challenges for Transatlantic cooperation efforts in trade law, investment law, financial regulation, monetary policy, and law and development – to say nothing of the longstanding conundrums raised by differences in competition law, complexities inherent in the supervision of multinational corporations and financial institutions, and problems posed by the need for sustained regulatory cooperation.
The International Economic Law Interest Groups of the American Society of International Law and the European Society of International Law, in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, will hold a joint workshop in which progress in new research on these issues may be made. The working language of the workshop will be English.
Call for previously unpublished papers: We encourage IEL scholars, practitioners, and advanced doctoral students to submit proposals for paper presentations on any topic related to the workshop’s theme, broadly conceived. Proposals should be no more than one single-spaced page in length and should include the paper’s working title and an abstract describing its main thesis, methods, and contribution. All papers should be works-in-progress, that is unpublished at the time of the workshop.
Authors should also submit a separate, one-page bio or short curriculum vitae (CV) (max two pages) along with the abstract.
Proposals should be emailed to: ASIL.ESIL.IntEcLIG.Workshop@gmail.com and must be received no later than June 30, 2015.
Selection process: Submissions will be reviewed by a joint selection committee convened by the organizers. Selection decisions will take into account the proposals’ originality, diversity, and relevance to the workshop’s theme and will aim to achieve a well-rounded representation of European, North American, and non-transatlantic perspectives. We plan to inform the selected participants by August 15, 2015, with papers due for circulation to all workshop participants no later than November 15, 2015.
Workshop Format: In order to ensure a high level of discussion and useful feedback for all authors, the workshop will take place over 1.5 days in a roundtable format. Presenters will be thematically grouped into four to five panels of three papers each, with a senior commentator moderating the discussion for each panel. Due to space limitations, early submission of proposals is highly encouraged.
Publication Possibility: Depending upon the topics of the final submissions, a number of workshop participants may be invited to submit their papers for publication within a special issue of the Journal of World Investment and Trade. Any such invitations will be extended in accordance with that Journal’s usual peer review and editorial policy.
Workshop Costs: We are in the process of applying for funding to help offset the costs of the workshop. Subject to final availability of funds, we hope to be able to cover reasonable economy class travel and accommodation costs to assist most participants with the journey to Heidelberg, which is particularly lovely during the holiday season. Final confirmation of funding availability will be communicated along with selection decisions.
Any further questions may be directed to the organizers at: ASIL.ESIL.IntEcLIG.Workshop@gmail.com.
We look forward to receiving your proposals!
