Call for Papers
Call for papers on “The Potential of Public Interest Litigation in International Law”: As there is growing interest in using international courts in the public interest, this project, funded by the University of Exeter and the University of Geneva, aims at analysing what challenges lie ahead and how to overcome them. In order to tackle these questions, the organisers invite abstract submissions that address the potential of public interest litigation in international law. All selected authors will be invited to present their paper at a two-day workshop to be held at the University of Exeter, United Kingdom on the 11 and 12 November 2021. We are delighted to announce that a keynote speech will be delivered by Professor Makane Moïse Mbengue (University of Geneva) at the opening of the workshop. The desired output is the publication of an edited collection of the best papers presented at the workshop. Further details and the full call for papers can be found here. The deadline for abstracts is 30 April 2021. For questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at pilitigation[dot]genex[at]gmail[dot]com.
Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law Call for Papers on “Cultures of International Humanitarian Law”: Academic debates about “universalism versus particularism”, which have dominated much of the critical scholarship in international law, remain relatively underexplored in the field of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). This call for papers is an invitation to investigate IHL’s universalism, either to deconstruct the processes through which IHL is produced, interpreted and applied – be it from doctrinal, theoretical, empirical or historical perspectives – or to question the idea that IHL needs critical deconstruction. Authors are encouraged to identify diverging cultures and the epistemic and interpretive communities – whether academic or institutional – that shape IHL. Interested authors should send an abstract of 500 words to the Managing Editor of the Yearbook, Dr. Rebecca Mignot-Mahdavi (R[dot]Mignot-Mahdavi[at]asser[dot]nl) by 1 June 2021. The complete CfP is below:
