2. International Law and Human Rights Unit of the University of Liverpool School of Law and Social Justice Workshop. The International Law and Human Rights Unit of the University of Liverpool School of Law and Social Justice is organising a two-day workshop on loyal co-operation with the system of the European Convention on Human Rights and the means of reaction by the European Court of Human Rights when its judgments trigger discontent. The conference is open to both established and early-career scholars and practitioners, including PhD students. Interested participants should provide an abstract of no more than 500 words by 20 December 2018. The call for papers is available online here.  

3. The ICJ Advisory Proceedings on the Chagos Archipelago and International Law – Westminster Law School. What are the legal issues arising from the ICJ Advisory Proceedings on the Chagos Archipelago and its separation from Mauritius? What is the legal position of the UK in relation to this territory? This panel event discusses these questions in light of the principle of self-determination of peoples, the rules on the protection of minorities, the ICJ Statute, and other applicable rules of international law. The event is organised under the auspices of ILaW (International Law at Westminster research cluster) and of the ILSA at Westminster Chapter, and is from 5pm – 7pm on 3 December 2018. Attendance is free, but prior registration is required. Further information and registration is here
4. Call for Papers: Workshop on “The Paths of Change in International Law”. The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies has launched a call for papers for an interdisciplinary workshop on “The Paths of Change in International Law”, to be held in Geneva on 6 – 7 June 2019. The workshop, convened by Nico Krisch and Ezgi Yildiz, is part of an ERC-funded research project on processes of informal change in the international legal order. The project asks how international law changes, how this change is registered among participants in legal discourses and how the pathways of change differ across issue areas and sites of international legal practice. The workshop will bring together leading and rising scholars from different disciplines – law, international relations, and political sociology – to explore these issues in a small and interactive format. We are particularly interested in sharpening the contrasts between different theoretical and methodological approaches, and invite participants to develop distinctive arguments rather than ecumenical accounts. Interested scholars should submit an abstract of no more than 300 words by 10 January 2019 at paths {at} graduateinstitute(.)ch. More information is available here
5. Call for Papers: ARTIJ and iCourts Workshop ‘Art and International Courts’. Art and International Justice Initiative (ARTIJ) and iCourts (Centre of Excellence for International Courts) are launching a call for papers for a workshop ‘Art and International Courts’ to be held in Copenhagen on 25 – 26 April 2019. The workshop will explore areas of intersection between art and the activity of international courts. Please see the call for papers here
