1. Chatham House Meeting on Investment Treaties. The International Law Programme at Chatham House will be hosting a meeting on ‘Investment Treaties: A Debate over Sovereignty, Trade, Development and Human Rights’ on 11 October 2017. For further details and to enquire about registering see here.

2. GoJIL Special Call on the One Belt – One Road Initiative. The One Belt – One Road Initiative (OBOR), also known as China’s New Silk Road, includes a large variety of infrastructure programs in numerous Eurasian and African States, proposed by the People’s Republic of China. It aims to enhance connectivity and cooperation across the Eurasian continent mainly through the construction of railways, highways, ports, airports, pipelines, etc., with China in a central role. This project could massively increase Chinese influence over Eurasia, as well as provide a chance for developing countries to benefit from its economic impact. To shed light on the diverse aspects of the One Belt – One Road Initiative, we call for authors to submit papers on this topic. Submissions from an international law background as well as other disciplines such as international relations, economics, geography, etc. are welcome. Papers should not exceed 15,000 words including footnotes. Selected contributions will be published in Issue 2 of Vol. 8. Our article guidelines and further information can be found on our website. All articles must be submitted by 15 January 2018. In case of any questions feel free to contact the editors via email at info {at} gojil(.)eu.
