The International Congress



The International Conferences of the Chair Innocent III constitute a channel of specialised scientific communication that, together with the Journal Vergentis and the Law and Theology Days, allow the exchange of information and ideas between the researchers who study important issues related to the History of Law, the Ius Commune and the Canon Law.

The Catholic University of Murcia (UCAM)

They take place annually, in the headquarters of the Chair, in the Catholic University of Murcia (UCAM). The articles selected by the main scientific committee are published in the next monographic issue of the Journal Vergentis (ISSN: 2445-2394).



The fruitful collaboration between the Catholic University of Murcia and the Pontifical Lateran University allowed the celebration of high level International Conferences, with the participation of well-known academics from all continents. The good results reached until this moment motivate us to keep following the same direction that we chose ever since the first edition of the Conferences: the historical-juridical research with a multidisciplinary approach and a careful eye on the current law, especially canon law. The selection of the topics that constitute the object of the Conferences aims to grant to the historical-juridical studies their authentic functionality, in order to avoid that they become an exercise of juridical analysis of the past as an end in itself, so that they can effectively contribute, instead, to a better comprehension of the current law and they can provide to the jurists new ideas to solve the current problems and new argumentation in the debates de iure condendo.



Call for Papers 2018:


MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES IN THE LAW

Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions

Murcia (Spain), December 12 -13 -14, 2018



The Fourth International Conference is organized by the Editors-In-Chiefs of the Cátedra Internacional conjunta Inocencio III, Dr. D. Javier Belda Iniesta [Universidad Católica de Murcia], and Prof. Matteo Nacci [Pontificia Università Lateranense].

The overall theme of the Conference is “Migrants and Refugees in the Law. Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions”. The current situation invites us to analyse and comprehend the phenomenon of the “Human mobility”, with a serious and intense interdisciplinary approach, that always has to recognize the central and essential importance of the person. By investigating on the historic evolution and the current situation, this Conference aims to understand whether the Migration has to be contemplated as a mere emergency, or as a possibility for the community.


This International Conference will be divided in three different sessions; each of them will correspond to three distinct periods: the ancient and medieval period [The migration in the ancient and the medieval history. Historical approach to human mobility]; the modern period [Nation, State, Revolution. The situation of the migrants and the refugees from the origin of the modern State] the post-modern period [Between emergency and ordinariness. Proposals for the enhancement of a constant phenomenon in the contemporary age].


December 12: session 1. THE MIGRATION IN THE ANCIENT AND MEDIEVAL HISTORY. Historical approach to human mobility.

December 13: session 2. NATION, STATE, REVOLUTION. The situation of the migrants and the refugees from the origin of the modern State.

December 14: session 3. BETWEEN EMERGENCY AND ORDINARINESS: Proposals for the enhancement of a constant phenomenon in the contemporary age.

The working languages of the Conference will be: English, Italian, German, French and Spanish.

We look forward to a positive confirmation, an honor for us indeed. We believe that your contribution to this field is unparalleled and of great benefit.

The deadline to send us your proposal is September 15, 2018.The Scientific Committee will respond before September 30, 2018.

The proposal must be send to catedrainocencio@gmail.com.

The papers selected by the Scientific Committee will be published in the special issue of the journal

Vergentis (ISSN: 2445-2394) in the first half of 2019.
