Call For Submissions at “Asia Blogs” For Symposium On Development Aid

About Asia Blogs

‘Asia blogs’ is a multidisciplinary legal blog run by an international editorial team. ‘Asia blogs’ is an initiative from Ideas Nepal Inc, that aims to advance participation of students and academicians in ensuring originality and creativity assessing the intersectionality while exploring the interdisciplinary research and work.

The need for a multidisciplinary legal blog comes as the result of serious reflection towards the evolving relationship between traditional and digital forms of scholarship and publishing. While the practice of publishing in a journal is important and pertinent, it is imperative in an evolving society to adapt to technological advancements and the evolving ways of content consumption. This blog, as a platform, offers students and academicians all over the world to engage in multidimensional discourse assessing the intersectionality in today’s world.

About the Opportunity

‘Asia blogs’ calls for submission for the Symposium on ‘Development Aid: Charity, or an Oppressive Tool of Inequality?’. This Symposium invites papers from scholars from the Global South and elsewhere who are interested in critical international law scholarship on development aid, with the ultimate goal of finding reformative solutions that will ensure self-reliance of the Global South. Interested scholars can contribute to the Symposium within the extended deadline of 5th April 2021.

Research Questions:

  1. Why does mainstream scholarship eschew interdisciplinary issues of Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL) and Critical Race Theory (CRT)? How can TWAIL and CRT scholarship remedy this educational gap?
  2. Can a system of global administrative law hold solutions for power imbalances in decision making present in international organizations and development policies?
  3. In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, what are the international legal implications of possible reduction in foreign aid spending?   
  4. Can development aid work in the international architecture of cooperation without repeating and perpetuating post-colonial and racist hegemony? To this end, what will be the role of international law? 

Formatting guidelines and details for contribution to the blog can be found here.
