3. ICTY Legacy Dialogues Call for Papers. As the Tribunal prepares to close in December 2017, ensuring that the work and achievements of the ICTY are accessible and impactful for stakeholders in the region of the former Yugoslavia – and abroad – is more important than ever. In order to best utilise this crucial remaining time, the ICTY is seeking to hold high-profile events, including a Legacy Conference in Sarajevo during the week of 19 June 2017.  The deadline for Submission of abstracts is 15 December 2016, with papers due by 15 April 2017See here to learn more. 
4. Brexit and the Future of European Criminal Law Workshop. This Workshop will be hosted on 17 January 2017 at the Technologie & Tagungszentrum Marburg, Software Center 3, 35037 Marburg, Germany (Room Pascal I). After the Brexit vote, the relationship between the EU and the UK must be radically redefined. This holds also true for the broad field of (European) Criminal Law. What will be the legal and practical effects of the Brexit on EU-derived criminal laws? Will, can and should the UK continue to participate in the European system of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters? How will Brexit impact on European Institutions like Europol and Eurojust? This international workshop does not pretend to give definitive answer to these questions, but will bring scholars and students from various countries together for a brainstorming exercise, hoping for a fruitful dialectical exchange which might produce some ideas on a possible future after Brexit. For more information please see here or contact Stefanie Bock (stefanie.bock {at} jura.uni-marburg(.)de).

5. Maastricht Panel on Brexit. This panel will be hosted on 25 November 2016. The panel convener is Prof Jure Vidmar (Maastricht). The speakers are Prof Christina Eckes (Amsterdam), Dr Josephine van Zeben (Oxford) and Ines Willemyns (KU Leuven). The panel will be held on 25 November 2016 at 2 pm, at the Hotel Van der Valk, Maastricht. More information is available here.

6. Harvard Law School Human Rights Program Visiting Fellowships for 2017-2018. Harvard Law School’s Human Rights Program invites applications for its Visiting Fellows Program in the 2017-2018 academic year. The Visiting Fellows Program gives individuals with a demonstrated commitment to human rights an opportunity to step back and conduct a serious inquiry in the human rights field. Visiting Fellows are usually scholars with a substantial background in human rights, experienced activists, or members of the judiciary or other branches of government. More information is available here. Typically, fellows come from outside the U.S., and spend from one semester to a full academic year in residence at Harvard Law School, where they devote the majority of their time to research and writing on a human rights topic. The Program currently has a preference for fellows working on the UN Treaty Bodies in their research, though applications are not limited in this regard. The Human Rights Program does not generally fund fellows. However, applicants who are nationals of low or middle income countries are eligible for the Eleanor Roosevelt Fellowship, which offers a stipend to help defray the cost of living. Fluent spoken English is essential. The deadline to submit applications is 1 February 2017. See here for more information on how to apply.
