Call for Papers
In 2020, an ESIL Symposium on ‘Exploring the Frontiers of International Law in Cyberspace’ will be co-organized by the Chair of Public International Law, Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, and the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, Leiden University, The Netherlands. The symposium will consist of two one-day events, one organized on 15 May 2020 in Kraków, the other in November 2020 in Leiden. The idea is to consider the challenges posed by cyberspace to traditional notions and areas of international law in light of the interconnectedness of global networks, our growing dependency on information and communication technologies, and malicious behaviour by States and non-State actors. The Kraków event will focus on issues relating to responsible State behaviour in cyberspace and State measures to ensure the resilience of national networks. The Leiden event will focus on ensuring the protection of and respect for human rights online and consider the role technology can play in promoting sustainable development and environmental protection. Papers for the Kraków event may adopt both a theoretical or more policy-oriented approach. The organizers for this event particularly welcome papers addressing one of the following sets of issues: rules and norms of responsible State behaviour in cyberspace, in particular in the context of the new OEWG and GGE proceedings; Western and non-Western approaches to international law in cyberspace; the application of international humanitarian law to cyber armed conflicts; sovereignty in cyberspace; aspects of “digital sovereignty”; State responsibility in cyberspace; individual and collective reactions to cyberattacks, cyber restrictive measures, countermeasures etc.; supply chain security and international trade law (vide 5G, Huawei, etc.); and extraterritorial jurisdiction (U.S. CLOUD Act, EU draft e-evidence regulation, etc.). Abstracts of not more than 800 words should be submitted to esil-symposium-krakow [at] outlook [dot] com by 15 December 2019.
