Theory and Practice of Legislation, in cooperation with the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) and the International Association of Legislation are pleased to announce their forthcoming conference on Legislation and Legislatures in War and Recovery.

The conference will be a hybrid one, held in person in Stockholm and online.

The conference will be held in June 2023 (precise date to be confirmed). Expenses for speakers and discussants will be covered. Papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of Theory and Practice of Legislation (TPLeg), subject to peer review.

The war in Ukraine has brought these questions ever more into the public sphere.  But this is sadly not the only place in the world where we have conflict.  Many countries, in all continents, have struggled with these questions on how legislation and legislatures ought to respond to war or other violent conflict and its aftermath.

We welcome contributions from all over the world, and would welcome in particular contributions from the global South.

We invite those who wish to propose a paper or a panel of papers to send us an abstract of no more than 300 words per paper setting out their proposal.  Please also include a brief CV.  Abstracts should be sent to by the end of October 2022.
