Call for Papers
Cambridge International Law Journal: A Tribute to Judge James Crawford: The Editorial Board of the Cambridge International Law Journal is pleased to invite submissions for Volume 11 (issues to be published in June and December 2022). The Board welcomes long articles, short articles and case notes that engage with current themes in international law. In tribute to Judge James Crawford, who served as the Journal’s inaugural Honorary Editor-in-Chief from 2011 until his appointment to the International Court of Justice, Issue 1 will include a special section that reflects upon the responsibility of States and other subjects of international law. Judge Crawford’s peerless contribution to the field is evident not only in the 2001 Articles on Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts, but also his work as scholar, counsel, judge and arbitrator. The Board is particularly interested in contributions on this theme, which will be published as part of the special section. Other contributions will be published as part of the general section of Issue 1. All submissions are subject to double-blind peer review by the Journal’s Editorial Board. In addition, long articles are sent to the Academic Review Board, which consists of distinguished international law scholars and practitioners. Submissions can be made at any time. Articles submitted by 24 October 2021 will be considered for Volume 11 Issue 1. For full submission instructions, please go here. Submissions can be made for Volume 11 here. Alternatively, blog articles can be submitted here. Further information can be obtained from the Editors-in-Chief at editors[at]cilj[dot]co[dot]uk.
2022 Human Rights Essay Award Competition Call for Papers: The Human Rights Essay Award, sponsored by the Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at American University Washington College of Law, seeks to stimulate the production of scholarly work in international human rights law. The topic of the 2022 Award is “Climate Change and Human Rights: Impacts, Responsibilities, and Opportunities.” Participants have the flexibility to choose any subject related to this topic, however, the scope of the essay must directly relate to this year’s topic, or it will be disqualified. In addition, we would like to note we believe that international human rights law can be understood to include international humanitarian law and international criminal law. We will award two winners—one for submissions in English and one for submissions in Spanish—with a full scholarship (including lodging and transportation to and from Washington, D.C.) to complete the Certificate of Attendance or Diploma in the 2022 Program of Advanced Studies on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law which will take place from May 30 to June 17, 2022. The deadline to enter your submission to the Human Rights Essay Award is January 31, 2022. Please note that this competition is open to lawyers around the world. However, ONLY participants with a law degree are eligible to enter the competition. We look forward to receiving your submission!
