3. Call for Papers: Glasginburgh (Glasgow-Edinburgh) 2020. Announcing the second conference in this collaboration, which will be held at the University of Glasgow on Monday 8 – Tuesday 9 of June 2020. The aim is to explore the relationship between international law and questions of “distribution” – broadly conceived. The two-day event will promote a dialogue about the myriad of ways in which current ‘distributions’ inform or even determine the development of international law, and how, in turn, the practices of international legal institutions may impact upon distributions of income, resources, and power in the world. Applications are welcomed from the critical, doctrinal and visionary traditions of international law enabling a serious scholarly reflection on this topic. Abstracts of 500 words should be sent to glasginburgh {at} gmail(.)com by 30 November 2019. For more information see the full call for papers. Read the rest of this entry…

Published on July 21, 2019        Author: 

1. Conference: ‘What Room for Military Assistance on Request in the International Legal Order?’ On Thursday 5 and Friday 6 December 2019, the Journal on the Use of Force and International Law (JUFIL, Routledge) and the Ghent Rolin-Jaequemyns International Law Institute (GRILI) will host an international conference focusing on ‘military assistance on request’. Having regard to recent third-State interventions in Yemen, Syria and elsewhere, the conference seeks to explore the legal framework governing such interventions, including relevant uncertainties and shortcomings as well as proposals de lege ferenda. Separate expert panels will be devoted to the ‘authority’ to invite outside intervention on the one hand, and the permissibility of third-State intervention in situations of civil war on the other hand. Confirmed panelists include inter alia Prof. Anne Orford (University of Melbourne), Prof. Eliav Lieblich (University of Tel Aviv), Prof. Gregory Fox (Wayne State University), Prof. Raphaël Van Steenberghe (Université catholique de Louvain-la-neuve), Prof. Karine Bannelier-Christakis (Université Grenoble-Alpes), Prof. Erika De Wet (University of Pretoria and University of Bonn), Prof. Alonso Gurmendi-Dunkelberg (Universidad del Pacifico), and Prof. Christian Henderson (University of Sussex). The conference programme and registration link are available here.

2. BISA Working Group on Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding. The BISA Working Group on Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding, with funding from the BISA Postgraduate Network, is organising an interdisciplinary PGR workshop entitled ‘Militarisation and the Local in Peacekeeping: Ambition, Pragmatism and Adaptability’ to be held at City, University of London on 20 September 2019. The workshop is the first of a four part series incorporating practitioners as well as academics and will explore challenges to peacekeeping through the lens of the local. Approaches to peacekeeping operations are increasingly in tension between pragmatic approaches which seek realistically achievable outcomes and ambitious approaches rooted in humanitarian commitments and human rights. We have seen increasingly complex mandates, robust and militarised missions which may negatively affect the local. Topics of interest include how best to pursue human rights and to incorporate local needs, the effect of militarisation and counter-terrorism in peacekeeping mandates, and how these challenges impact human security and building peace. Please send abstracts (of no more than 250 words) to Alexander.Gilder {at} city.ac(.)uk and ss17sw {at} leeds.ac(.)uk no later than 31 July 2019. Further information, including travel bursaries and attendance, can be found here.
