Announcements: New Journal, Calls for Papers, Conferences

Written by

1) The Third Annual Junior Faculty Forum for International Law will be convened at the University of Melbourne on July 7, 8 and 9, 2014. The Forum is led by Anne Orford of the University of Melbourne Law School, JHH Weiler of the NYU School of Law, and Dino Kritsiotis of the University of Nottingham School of Law. The Forum is designed to assist junior faculty, i.e. those within the first six years of their academic careers, with their research by staging an annual competition in which six to nine individuals will be selected and asked to make presentations to the Forum in a given year. These presentations will then be paired with senior international legal scholars, who will comment on each of the presentations given to the Forum, so that the papers are eventually worked up and prepared for publication in the European Journal of International Law. The deadline for submission of applications is December 1, 2013.

2) Hart Publishing has announced that the  Journal on the Use of Force and International Law – the first peer-reviewed journal covering all aspects of the law governing the use of force, as distinct from other areas of international law relating to security issues, such as International Humanitarian Law or International Criminal Law – will be launched in 2014. In addition to publishing research of the highest quality and impact, of both a theoretical and more practical nature, the Journal will support the conducting of research, through a digest of state practice on the use of force which will act as a key means of assessing the development of customary international law in the area.  For information on how to submit articles to the Journal, see here.

3) The British Institute of International and Comparative Law will be running a new four day programme (23-26 September 2013), called International Law in Practice. Led by many of the Institute’s leading researchers and practitioners, the course will provide a broad introduction to key issues in international and comparative law – from public to private and from commercial to human rights.

4) The Georg-August-University of Goettingen Institute for International Law and European Law announces the conference, “Judgments of the European Court of Human Rights – Effects and Implementation,” to be held in Goettingen, Germany on 20-21 September 2013.
