On Tuesday, 16 May 2017, the Centre for Law, Regulation and Governance of the Global Economy (GLOBE) at the University of Warwick, as part of the International Economic Law in Context Seminar Series, will host a public event on Socio-Legal Methodologies. The event will consist of a panel discussion followed by a workshop for early career researchers to discuss their own research ideas with the panellists.
Dr Lorenzo Cotula, Principal Researcher in Law and Sustainable Development from the International Institute for Environment and Development, and visiting academic at the Law School will discuss insights from empirical research on international investment law. He will explore how socio-legal methodologies enabled him to interrogate the assumptions that typically underpin investment treaty making, particularly the connections that are often drawn between investment protection, investment promotion and economic development.
Dr James Harrison, Associate Professor at the Law School will discuss his ESRC-funded research into labour standards provisions in EU trade agreements. He will reflect on how the empirical nature of this project has allowed him to interrogate questions about the impact of such provisions within national legal systems and political economies, as well as the relative prioritisation of different international trade law commitments by key actors.

Dr Celine Tan, Associate Professor at the Law School will discuss how socio-legal methodologies have enabled her to explore the complex web of law, policy and power which underpin international relationships in the global financial architecture.
