Calls for papers
- In case you haven’t seen it yet, we have launched our own call for papers aimed at LL.M, Ph.D and S.J.D. students as well as those practitioners/academics within the first five years post-degree to participate in our New Voices symposium starting in July. The deadline for 200-word abstract submissions is May 1, 2013.
- Vermont Law School will host the fourth-annual Colloquium on Environmental Scholarship October 11, 2013, and has issued a call for abstracts. From the website: “If you are interested in presenting a paper at the Colloquium, please submit a working title and short abstract, using our online form, no later than June 1, 2013. For an abstract to be eligible for submission, the author must anticipate that the paper will still be at a revisable stage (neither published nor so close to publication that significant changes are not feasible) by the date of the Colloquium. We will do our best to include all interested presenters, and will notify authors about acceptances no later than July 2013.”
- The International Review of Law invites submissions for its next editions to be published in July and January. Papers may be in English or Arabic. Submissions are considered on a rolling basis. Selected authors will be invited to Qatar University College of Law in Doha to conduct a guest lecture on their area of research.
- The 22nd annual Society of Legal Scholars’ International Law section/British Institute of International and Comparative Law conference on theory and international law will be held April 29 in London. This year’s topic is Sanctions and Embargoes: International Law and Contemporary Practice?, and more information can be found here.
- The international conference on NON-STATE ACTOR RESPONSIBILITIES: EMPIRICAL FINDINGS AND THEORETICAL CONSIDERATIONS, co-chaired by the Institute for Transborder Studies and the Non-State Actor Committee of the International Law association, will take place in Richmond (Vancouver), BC, Canada, on June 26-28, 2013. The conference will address the obligations and responsibilities of non-state actors with a view to understanding the complexity of non-state actors’ international legal personality, their responsibility and compliance with international law, and the associated legal consequences. Focus is placed on the following five categories of non-state actors: non-governmental organizations (NGOs), multinational/transnational corporations (MNCs), certain organized armed opposition groups, sui generis entities such the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and organised indigenous peoples’ groups. For further information and registration, please see this link.
