1. Call for Papers: Special Issue of the Canadian Journal of Development Studies on Law, Governance and Development: Critical and Heterodox Approaches. The myriad legal and policy instruments in the governance of development have shifted and evolved in significant ways in recent years, posing challenges to scholars, policy-makers and practitioners on how to effectively map, analyse and critique their nature and effects. Contributions are being sought (in French and English) for a bilingual Special Issue of the Canadian Journal of Development Studies, co-edited by Mark Toufayan and Siobhan Airey, to explore these questions from heterodox and critical perspectives. The aim of this Special Issue is to critically examine the role of law and the nature of legality in specific initiatives focused on ‘development’, and its implications for the evolving nature and governance of the relationship between states, markets, peoples, communities and the natural environment at levels and scales that transcend that of the nation state. We invite submissions on engagements between law, governance and development from a wide range of critical perspectives, including feminism, TWAIL and postcolonial scholarship, history and ethnography, critical geography, critical IR and political economy, Marxist and materialist perspectives, etc., and that focus on developments both within and between the Global North and South, and on particular scales and sites of governance. Proposals of 500-750 words, as well as a short CV, should be sent to mark.toufayan {at} uqo(.)ca and siobhan.airey {at} ucd(.)ie by 20 July 2018. For the full text of the call, please see here.

2. Call for Submissions: International Law and Conflict at Sea. The Stockton Center for International Law at the U.S. Naval War College invites submissions for its upcoming legal workshop, International Law and Conflict at Sea, at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island on 27­ – 28 November 2018. This workshop will feature leading scholars on the law of the sea, international humanitarian law, and maritime security and include a keynote address from Professor Wolff Heintschel von Heinegg, Chair of Public Law at the Europa-Universität Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany. This workshop will focus on conflict at sea, both at the high end of gray zone operations and at the low end of naval warfare. Thus, in addition to law of naval warfare and law of the sea considerations, scholars will also draw upon maritime security and other relevant bodies of law. Those interested in presenting a paper should submit a proposal to John Hursh, Director of Research at the Stockton Center at john.hursh.ctr {at} usnwc(.)edu. Proposals should include a title, an abstract of no more than 500 words, and a current CV or resume. The deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday 31 August, although earlier submissions are strongly encouraged. Those selected to present will receive notification by 15 September. The Stockton Center anticipates that it will be able to provide travel and lodging for selected presenters. All questions should be addressed to john.hursh.ctr {at} usnwc(.)edu.
