The Review is published under the auspices of the International Society for Military Law and the Law of War. It features original and challenging articles, case notes, commentaries of the latest legal developments, as well as book reviews. As a distinct trait, it accepts contributions in six languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch. For its coming issue, the Review’s editorial board welcomes submissions from scholars and practitioners that come within the broader scope of the Review (including military law, law of armed conflict, law on the use of force, as well as international criminal law and human rights law (inasmuch as related to situations of armed conflict)). The deadline for submission is 31 October 2018. Submissions should be sent by e-mail to brussels {at} ismllw(.)org.

4. 2019 Harvard IGLP Scholars Workshop. Harvard Law School’s Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) is pleased to announce the 2019 Harvard IGLP Scholars Workshop, organized in collaboration with and hosted by the Thailand Institute of Justice. Held in Bangkok, Thailand from 6 – 10 January 2019, the Workshop is an intensive, regionally-focused residential program for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty of law and policy from around the world. The 2019 IGLP Scholars Workshop will focus on the important legal and political choices embedded in policy debate on issues facing Asia and the world, while offering unparalleled opportunities to strengthen participants’ writing and research. The IGLP Workshop offers a unique scholarly format. The week features a stimulating series of plenaries, lectures, and networking opportunities, alongside innovative mini-courses on contemporary issues of law and policy. We encourage applications from young scholars across Asia and worldwide who would benefit from intensive collaboration with colleagues from across Asia and IGLP’s junior and senior faculty. Interested scholars for the IGLP Scholars Workshop are encouraged to apply via the IGLP website. Applications are due 21 September 2018. During the 2018 IGLP Scholars Workshop, The Thailand Institute of Justice & the IGLP will once again convene a concurrent workshop for selected emerging policy professionals, which offers a unique opportunity for policy practitioners from different sectors to engage with their global peers in dialogue facilitated by the faculty from the IGLP and TIJ network.
