Calls for Papers
- A call for papers has been issued for a workshop and publication on “Natural resources grabbing: erosion or legitimate exercise of State sovereignty?” 4th and 5th October 2013 at the University of Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy). Deadline for submissions of abstracts is 15 June 2013. The growing demand for natural resources has triggered a “race” to their exploitation and possession, especially in developing countries. This research project aims at addressing, from an international law perspective, this very complex challenge for the international community. More information can be found here.
