16 Aug Events and Announcements: August 16, 2015
- NALSAR International Law Society (affiliated to I.L.S.A) and NALSAR University of Law, one of the premier law schools in India, are glad to announce the launch of NALSAR International Law Journal. NALSAR International Law Journal, a biannual peer-review e- journal, seeks to provide a platform for highest quality debate on International Law, both on levels of theoretical abstraction and on the level of contemporary international legal issues. In this issue of the Journal, we have incorporated a wide range of articles, some dealing in policy questions, some doing normative analysis of a contemporary international legal issues. Prof. James Nedumpara’s article highlights the issue of widening of international law beyond traditional confines of “law of nations” and illustrates the role of networking societies in WTO engagements. Articles by Himanil Raina and Pratik Ranjan Das engage in a debate about a very contemporary issue of great significance—that is scope of Article 2 (4) of UN Charter and prohibition of use of force in light of modern issues like attacks by non-state actors and cyber-attacks. On a similar vein, Abhik Chakraborty’s paper deals with questions of attributability that has become especially important in this age of irregular warfare. Edrine Wanyama’s article examines the theoretical and normative underpinnings of the Calvo Doctrine and its importance especially for the Third World nations. Others have done analysis of issues such as Odious Debts, Immunity of International organisations and so on. Readers can access the Journal here. You can write to the editors at: nalsar [dot] ils [at] gmail [dot] com.
