1. Ghandhi Research Seminar Series. Global Law at Reading (GLAR) is delighted to unveil the programme for the 2019/20 Ghandhi Research Seminar Series. The series showcases the work of experts in global law fields.

3. Palestine Yearbook of International Law – Call for Papers.  The Palestine Yearbook of International Law (PYBIL) has opened an invitation for an additional round of submissions for Volume XXII. We welcome general submissions related to public international law. We are interested in particular in critical approaches to international law, and welcome submissions in relation to Palestine.

4. Good For all: Towards a Paradigm Shift – Blockchain, Law and Governance Conference. This conference will take place on 25 – 26 October 2019 at Milan, Università degli Studi, Sala Napoleonica, Via Sant’Antonio 12. The overall topic discussed throughout the conference is blockchain in a legal perspective. As never before, this new technology requires us to take a multidisciplinary approach. Indeed, enactment of new laws cannot ignore an understanding of how the technology works. Accordingly, workshops and parallel practical sessions will be offered to allow those who are interested to gain knowledge of what there is behind a blockchain node. The common thread throughout the conference will be a look at technology without fear and with the aim to understand it and to better grasp positive effects that can derive from it. For this reason, some sessions will be devoted to blockchain sustainable projects in application. For further information, see here
