Write On! Collective redress across borders

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers)

Organizers of a workshop entitled Collective Redress in the Cross-Border Context: Arbitration, Litigation, Settlement and Beyond seek proposals for the works in progress portion of the conference, to be held June 20-22, 2012, in Wassenaar, the Netherlands. Convener is the Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law, along with the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Here's the theme statement we received via e-mail:
'Large-scale international legal injuries are becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s globalized economy, whether they arise in the context of consumer, commercial, contract, tort or securities law, and countries are struggling to find appropriate means of providing collective redress, particularly in the cross-border context.'
'All works-in-progress submissions should explore one or more of the various means of resolving collective injuries, including class and collective arbitration, mass arbitration and mass claims processes, class and collective litigation, and large-scale settlement and mediation, preferably in a cross-border context.'
Send abstracts of no more than 500 words to Missouri Law Professor Stacie I. Strong (right), the 2012 Henry G. Schermers Fellow, at
Deadline is May 1, 2012; details here.
