1. Call for Papers: Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law: Special forum on The International Court of Justice at 75: an Assessment. The Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law (UNYB) invites interested authors to submit abstract proposals for an open call for papers for their forthcoming volume which is thematically focused on the International Court of Justice (ICJ). In light of the 75th anniversary of the ICJ, this special call for papers is an attempt to curate and feature submissions that critically engage with and examine the work of the ICJ throughout these years. The deadline for receipt of abstract proposals is 15 April 2022. The full call for papers and submission guidelines can be found here. In case of any queries, email Sai Venkatesh, Managing Editor at unyb {at} mpfpr(.)de.    

2. Call for Papers: European Yearbook of Constitutional Law. The European Yearbook of Constitutional Law (EYCL) invites scholars from around the world to submit proposals for its 2023 issue on “Constitutional law and the algorithmic state”. The deadline for proposals is 1 June, 2022.

3. Call for Papers: Young Researchers’ Workshop European Human Rights Protection. Twenty years from now. On 16 of September 2022, the Academy for European Human Rights Protection at the University of Cologne will be opened officially. This will be marked with a colloquy bringing together judges from the European Court of Human Rights, the European Court, the German Constitutional Court and the British Supreme Court as well as researchers from different countries. The colloquy will be preceded by a two-day workshop for post-doctoral and doctoral researchers on 14-15 September 2022. The focus of both events lies on the expected and unexpected turns that human rights protection in Europe might or should take in the next twenty years and what the role of judicial bodies will or ought to be in these expected evolutions.  Submissions are invited on future-oriented research questions such as the impact of technological developments on human rights, the idea of developing “non-human” human rights in connection with harm to the environment and climate change, human rights as a remedy against populism, potential further human-rights problems in the area of communication, potential East-West or North-South cleavages as well as questions about the future of the protection mechanisms that are currently in place. Abstract submissions should be made by Thursday 31 March 2022 to abstract-humanrights {at} uni-koeln(.)de.
