Call for Papers

Call for Submissions – Trade, Law and Development: The Board of Editors of Trade, Law and Development is pleased to invite original, unpublished manuscripts for publication in the Winter ’22 Issue of the Journal (Vol. 14, No. 2) in the form of ‘Articles’, ‘Notes’, ‘Comments’ and ‘Book Reviews’. Founded in 2009, the philosophy of Trade, Law and Development has been to generate and sustain a constructive and democratic debate on emergent issues in world trade, international economic law, cross-border investment, and development, among other inter-related aspects of international law, and to serve as a forum for the discussion and distribution of ideas. Towards these ends, we have published works by noted scholars such as WTO DDG Yonov F. Agah, Dr. Prof. Ernst Ulrich Petersmann, Prof. Steve Charnovitz, Prof. Petros Mavroidis, Prof. Mitsuo Matsuhita, Prof. Raj Bhala, Prof. Joel Trachtman, Gabrielle Marceau, Simon Lester, Prof. Bryan Mercurio, and Prof. M. Sornarajah among others. TL&D also has the distinction of being ranked the best journal in India across all fields of law and the 10th best journal in the field of world trade for seven consecutive years by Washington and Lee University, School of Law. Manuscripts received by August 15, 2022, pertaining to any area within the purview of international economic law will be reviewed for publication in the Winter ’22 issue. Manuscripts may be submitted via e-mail. For further information about the Journal, please click here. For submission guidelines, please click here.

Contributions that focus on requirements for packaging and labelling, restrictions on marketing and advertisement, the regulation of school environments and/or establishment of smoke-free spaces, the regulation of corporate social responsibility, the relationship between food, alcohol, and tobacco and the environment, and lessons learned from COVID-19 on the relationship between food, alcohol, and tobacco regulation and the law will be prioritized. Note, however, that contributions may focus on any relevant area of law, including, but not limited to, international human rights law, other legal human rights frameworks, regional law, constitutional law, administrative law, consumer law, intellectual property law, corporate law, tax law, trade law, anti-trust law, and environmental law. While this special issue targets the Caribbean region, we welcome comparative contributions that review the progress (or lack thereof) in other regions that experience similar challenges.
