Calls for Papers
Call for Submissions – American Review of International Arbitration: The American Review of International Arbitration at Columbia Law School, a leading international dispute resolution journal, is soliciting manuscripts of Articles and Notes for possible publication in Volume 34, no. 2 (winter 2023) – Special Issue: The Russian-Ukraine War. We welcome Articles by scholars, practitioners, and other professionals, as well as Notes by law students, with especial encouragement for authors from communities traditionally underrepresented in international arbitration scholarship and practice. While submissions related to the Russian-Ukraine war are especially encouraged, we welcome manuscripts on other topics. Please submit manuscripts as an email attachment in Microsoft Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Submission for Review [last name]” as the subject line, by January 15, 2023. ARIA also accepts manuscripts of Blog Posts relating to recent developments in international arbitration for potential online publication on a year-round basis. Please direct any questions to ARIA’s Student Editor-in-Chief, Olivia Lu, who can be reached at email@example.com.
Call for Papers – The “global south” and liberal values in the historiography of human rights: As part of the Cluster of Excellence “Contestations of the Liberal Script” (SCRIPTS), Tobias Berger (Freie Universität Berlin), Anna Holzscheiter (Technische Universität Dresden), and Thomas Risse (Freie Universität Berlin) are organising a workshop to be held in Berlin on 4-5 May 2023. The workshop aims to discuss the place of liberal values in twentieth-century contestations over human rights, and it is intended as a first step towards a joint publication. Scholars working in the social sciences – including but not limited to IR and legal scholars, historians, and political scientists – are invited to submit a 300/500-word abstract and a short bio as a single file by 6 January 2023 to Prof. Tobias Berger (firstname.lastname@example.org). Expenses for attending the workshop will be covered by the organisation. Please find the full call for papers here.
