2. Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop 2017: Oceans and Space: New Frontiers in Investment Protection? For many years, the Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop – jointly organized by Rainer Hofmann (Frankfurt), Stephan W. Schill (Amsterdam), and Christian J. Tams (Glasgow) – has been a forum for the discussion of foundational issues of international investment law. With activities ranging from energy production at sea via deep seabed mining to space mining, spacefaring and space tourism, areas beyond territorial sovereignty increasingly attract foreign investment. These investments raise questions that go to the core of investment law, but have so far hardly been explored, such as: How are commercial activities on the oceans or in space protected against political risk? What law, if any, protects them, and how does it balance commercial interests against regulatory concerns? How can disputes be settled in an effective and balanced manner? The 2017 Frankfurt Investment Law Workshop will offer a systematic analysis of these issues by inquiring into traditional sources of investment protection, and by addressing the interaction of the law of the sea, space law and international investment law. The Workshop will bring together academics and practitioners. The Workshop program is available here; for edited collections that have grown out of earlier Frankfurt Investment Law Workshops see here, here, here and here. If you are interested in attending, please contact Sabine Schimpf, Merton Centre for European Integration and International Economic Order, University of Frankfurt at S.Schimpf {at} jur.uni-frankfurt(.)de by 28 February 2017.

A Call for Papers has been announced for the 25th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law,  which is on the subject of “Sustaining the International Legal Order in an Era of Rising Nationalism.” The Conference will take place from Thursday 29 June to Saturday 1 July 2017 at Hotel QT Canberra, 1 London Circuit, Canberra, Australia.

4. UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence Call for Submissions. The UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence is a law journal run by postgraduate students of the UCL Faculty of Laws. The Editorial Board is pleased to call for submissions for the second issue of 2017 on the theme of ‘Crisis and the Law’. The topic is broadly conceived, covering a range of political, economic, social, environmental and cultural issues, and leaves scope for any area of law or jurisprudence (domestic, regional or international) that is deemed to be crisis-related. The Journal seeks to publish pieces that either articulate the concept of crisis within the law or how the law deals with current crises. Articles which challenge existing boundaries in law or jurisprudence or how legal institutions work and are shaped by crises are also welcome. We accept articles of 8,000-12,000 words, case notes of 6,000-8,000 words and book reviews of 1,000-2,000 words. All submissions must comply with OSCOLA. Contributions that have already been published or that are under consideration for publication in other journals will not be considered. The deadline for submissions is 14 April 2017. For further information and guidelines for authors please see our website or contact the Academic Editors (ucljlj {at} ucl.ac(.)uk).
