Calls for Papers
- The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) is making a worldwide Call for Papers on British Influences on International Law 1915-2015. The Institute is publishing a series of books to commemorate the centenary of the establishment in London of the Grotius Society (a forerunner of BIICL) in 1915. One of these books is on British Influences on International Law in the period from 1915 until today. They invite anyone who has an interest in writing a chapter on an aspect of this topic to submit an abstract for consideration. This invitation extends to established academics, early career researchers, doctoral researchers, those with experience in government and other practice, and anyone else with relevant expertise, whether based in the UK or elsewhere. The authors of the selected papers may be chosen for presentation as part of a seminar series which is likely to be held in the first half of 2015. For further information, please visit their website or contact the project co-ordinator Dr Jean-Pierre Gauci on j [dot] gauci [at] biicl [dot] org.
- The Refugee Law Initiative (RLI) invites submissions to its Working Paper Series. The series provides for the rapid dissemination of preliminary research results and other work in progress, reflecting cross and inter-disciplinary interests within refugee law and policy, broadly defined. Recent papers have considered integration, detention and smuggling of asylum-seekers, gender-related asylum claims and long-term encampment. RLI Working Papers are prominently displayed on the RLI website as a resource for scholars and practitioners worldwide. Papers must be based on original research, conform to the usual standard of academic publishing, be fully referenced and presented in the standard technical format employed by the series. Papers will be evaluated based on their contemporary relevance, contribution to the field, structure and analytical rigour (submission guide). Papers published in the series may subsequently be published in journals or books provided that an acknowledgement is given to the RLI Working Paper Series. Submissions are considered on a rolling basis. For further information, and to submit a paper please contact the Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Ruvi Ziegler, at r [dot] ziegler [at] reading [dot] ac [dot] uk or ruvi [dot] ziegler [at] law [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk.
