Report My research trip to the United States this November/December was twofold. I used the chance to meet up with my Law and Economics Professor (Peter Rosendorff) from the New York University to speak about my PhD project. Afterwards I attanted the 2015 Doctoral Scholarship Conference and presented a paper on the “The Unexpected Flexibility of Public International Law” together with my colleague Tobias Ackermann. We participated in very vivid discussions and benefited from the interdisciplinary atmosphere and the scientific vibe at Yale. Now, we will include the advice and hints that were given to us during the conference in our paper.
