1. Call for Papers: Practising Reflexivity in International Law. The Law Department of the European University Institute (EUI) has issued a call for papers inviting emerging scholars to think about the constraints and opportunities they face when making interventions in international law. International lawyers entering the field today are met with challenges such as the rise of populism, growing economic inequality, climate change, and unraveling global cooperation. In addressing these challenges, the situation of international lawyers ⎯ e.g. their race, gender, or position in the field ⎯ and its influence on how they think and address these challenges has been seldom considered overtly. Building on this reflexive attitude, this Forum invites emerging scholars to explore practising reflexivity in their own work and in the field of international law. Abstracts of around 500 words are due by 13 September 2020. See full details here

2. Covid-19 and International Law – Science and Disinformation, Exceptions and Emergencies: A Joint Online Event of ESIL and Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice (SCILJ). While the 16th ESIL Conference in Stockholm has been postponed until 2021, the traditional “current events” discussion will be held online on 10 September 2020 at 15.00 -17.00 (CEST). Links will be sent to all who have registered by sending an email to scilj {at} (please write “Covid-19 and IL” in the subject line). The event will include two panels: (1)  Science, Tech, Trolls and the Role of Information; and (2) Covid-19 and International Law: Emergencies, Exceptions and Regime Contestation.

3. Climate:Red Summit Virtual Event: Using Law and Policy to Reduce Risk, Enhance Coherence and Protect People. This event will take place on 9 September at 17:00-18:30 Geneva time. Access the session (259) here.
