The UNYB is a peer-reviewed academic publication, produced by the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and Rule of Law (Foundation) and published by Brill. Founded in 1997, the UNYB was the first scholarly periodical to focus on activities of the United Nations in the field of international law.
In light of the 75th anniversary of the ICJ, we issue this special call for papers in an attempt to curate and feature submissions that critically engage with and examine the work of the ICJ throughout these years. The deadline for receipt of abstract proposals is 15 April 2022. The full call for papers and submission guidelines can be found here.
