1. Call for Papers: Transforming Evidence and Proof in International Criminal Trials. On 1 July 2022, the International Criminal Court (ICC) will mark the 20th anniversary of the entry into force of the Rome Statute, its constitutive treaty. To mark this coming event iCourts are hosting a virtual conference focusing on fact-finding and proof in international criminal trials. The conference intends to bring together researchers, academics, and practitioners across the fields of law, the forensic sciences, political science, and psychology, and allied disciplines. This conference will serve to generate dialogue, and to facilitate engagement, with the latest theoretical and empirical work: research which advances the study of evidence and proof in international criminal trials, shaping our current understandings, and laying the foundations for future innovations. See here for more information. 

2. Call for Papers: The Rights to Privacy and Data Protection in Times of Armed Conflict. In cooperation with the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE), Russell Buchan and Asaf Lubin are coordinating a project examining the extent to which international law protects the right to data privacy during times of armed conflict. The project will involve a conference in September 2021 and culminate in an edited book published by the CCDCOE, which will contain chapters from leading scholars and practitioners. The project’s coordinators have issued a Call for Papers and more details can be found here.

6. Brexit Webinar. This webinar will take place on 26 March and will look at the most relevant legal profiles following Brexit. The end of the transitional period on 31 December 2020 led to the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (“TCA”) of 24 December 2020 which avoided a “No Deal” scenario. Since 1 January 2021, the United Kingdom is no longer part of the EU’s customs and tax territory. The TCA creates a free trade area for goods without extra duties or quotas for products, but introduces new rules on rules of origin and labelling of Italian products exported to the UK as well as new rules for online international sales contracts. The TCA does not clearly regulate the area of financial services, nor it provides detailed regulation for automatic mutual recognition of professional qualifications. All in all, Brexit and TCA require an assessment of current and future international commercial contracts between EU and British companies as well as an evaluation of civil and commercial dispute resolution tools, including arbitration. The working languages of the webinar will be English and Italian. Enroll by sending an email to Ms. Giovanna Tello at, Further information can be found here
