On February 18, 2016, the Animal Law & Policy Program and the Islamic Legal Studies Program will host a workshop on Animals in Comparative Constitutional Law. The workshop call for papers invites scholarly submissions on any theme relevant to this topic, including pieces addressing constitutional theory, institutional design, and case studies grounded in the constitutional experiences of particular jurisdictions or regions. Also of interest are topics that involve issues of religious law, such as the relevance of the halal and kosher debates to constitutional developments regarding animals (e.g., in Europe), and the religious dimensions of the constitutional protections for animals (e.g., in India).

Applicants should submit an abstract (between 500 and 1,000 words) to cgreen@law.harvard.edu, along with a C.V., by October 15, 2015. All submissions must be in English. Decisions on workshop participation will be communicated to applicants by October 29, 2015. 

All selected participants will be expected to produce a working draft of their paper (approximately 10,000 words) by December 15, 2015, and to participate in person at the workshop, to be held at Harvard Law School on Thursday, February 18, 2016.

Harvard Law School will cover the travel costs and local accommodations of participants. The workshop is sponsored by the Animal Law & Policy Program and the Islamic Legal Studies Program.
