    IISL - Call for Nominations
    for the position of Scientific Director



The International Institute for the Sociology of Law, IISL, Onati, is issuing a call through the Research Committee for the Sociology of Law for nominations for the position of Scientific Director of IISL.

The IISL in Onati is a leading institution for the sociology of law, with an international reputation. IISL will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a Conference in Onati in June, 2019. IISL receives students and faculty from around the world to Onati for a master program, and has created a worldwide network of socio legal scholars and researchers based in Onati through hosting a number of international workshops each year, as well as individual visitors. IISL Onati has one of the leading libraries for sociology of law, can offer grants to support visitors, and publishes a highly regarded series of books and journals.

The 2 year term of the present Scientific Director (SD)at IISL Onati will end in August 2020.

The RCSL will now begin its customary procedures to identify and recommend a candidate for the position to the IISL Board for approval. All RCSL members are invited to take part in this process and nominate a candidate for the term 2020 to 2022. If you wish to do so, and have identified a scholar who both meets the qualifications for excellence of the Ikerbasque Foundation for Scientific Research in the Basque Country, and is willing to be nominated and serve, please send your letter of recommendation with reasons for the nomination and a copy of the candidate’s CV and a list of publications by 1 July 2019 to the chair of the RCSL Nominating Committee , Mavis Maclean at mavis.maclean(at)spi.ox.ac.uk. She will be working with Susanne Karstedt (IISL Board Member) and Masayuki Murayama (past President of the RCSL) as the independent Nominating Committee appointed by RCSL President Ulrike Schultz to consider and stimulate nominations for this key position.

The Nominating Committee will review all applications and present a short list to the RCSL Executive Committee and the RCSL President who will forward one or two names through the Administrative Director of the Onati Institute to the Ikerbasque Foundation for Review. The final candidate will be selected by the IISL Board.

You can find a detailed and interesting description of the role of the SD in organising and promoting the academic work of IISL written by former SDs Manolo Calvo and Carlos Lista, and a profile of the SD by Adam Czarnota, on this website. For details of the administrative status of the SD please contact the Administrative Director Maite Elorza Plazaola (m.elorza@iisj.es). We are most grateful for the interest and support of the IkerBasque Foundation and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). The Oñati Scientific Director becomes an Ikerbasque fellow for two years and a distinguished professor of the University of the Basque Country. The SD will have an office in the Institute, and family accommodation is provided in the Antia College Residence in Onati at a moderate cost. If you have any questions about the current SD role or about the Basque scientific environment, please contact Noe Cornago the current SD (noecornago(at)iisj.es).

The IISL in Onati makes an important contribution to the reputation of the Basque Country for academic research and professional training, and plays an important part in the life of the ISA RCSL. We hope that as many members as possible will take part in this process, which will be open to all members. We would be grateful if you would take some time to think about a candidate to take IISL forward into its next decade in the Basque Country.
