Call for Papers
- On Thursday 5 and Friday 6 December 2019, the Journal on the Use of Force and International Law (JUFIL) and the Ghent Rolin-Jaequemyns International Law Institute (GRILI) will host an international conference focusing on ‘military assistance on request’. Having regard to recent third-State interventions in Yemen, Syria and elsewhere, the conference seeks to explore the legal framework governing such interventions, including relevant uncertainties and shortcomings as well as proposals de lege ferenda. Separate expert panels will be devoted to the ‘authority’ to invite outside intervention, on the one hand, and the permissibility of third-State intervention in situations of civil war, on the other hand. In addition, the organizers are inviting promising scholars in an earlier stage of their academic career to submit an abstract for a dedicated ‘emerging voices’ panel. Abstracts are due by 15 March 2019, and you can find all information here. The conference is co-organized by Tom Ruys (Ghent University), Chris Henderson (University of Sussex), James Green (University of Reading) and Frederik Dhondt (Free University of Brussels). More information will be forthcoming, so stay tuned!
