Call for Papers SELE Annual Conference 2013

Dear Colleagues:

The fifth annual meeting of the Society for Environmental Law and Economics will be held on 22-23 May 2013, at the Faculty of Law, University of Bar Ilan, Ramat Gan, Israel. The meeting is sponsored by the Faculty of Law, University of Bar Ilan (

We hope to build upon the great success of past meetings, and continue to build a community of environmental scholars interested in working in the intersection of law, economics, and environmental or natural resource issues. This year, we hope to put further emphasis on the interdisciplinary study of problems in environmental regulation and natural resource management. We would welcome both theoretical and empirical papers, as well studies looking at problems at the local and international domains.

In the spirit of collegiality, the meeting will take place in a workshop format, in which all sessions will be plenary. We strongly encourage all attendees to attend all presentations. Our goal is to create a program that includes a variety of disciplinary perspectives, ideally consisting of 20-30 papers over the two-day period.

No funding will be available for travel or lodging expenses, but the Bar Ilan Faculty of Law will provide food and drink during the workshop for the speakers and will host a dinner for the participants on the first day of the conference.

Further information regarding accommodation, the conference program and other logistic matters will be posted on this blog ( Inquiries can also be sent to Prof. Oren Perez (at
