4. Call for Papers: The New U.S. Recognition Policy – What the Golan and Western Sahara Mean for the Law. In the past couple of years, the United States took several major actions to recognize states’ de jure sovereignty over contested territories, including Israel’s in the Golan Heights and Morocco in Western Sahara. While adopted under the Trump Administration, these recognitions now constitute part of the official policy of the United States. The aim of this symposium is to explore what this means for U.S. foreign affairs law and public international law. This Symposium – conducted by Zoom on 16 December 2021 –  is organized jointly by the George Mason University International Law Journal and the new Center for the Middle East and International Law. They are seeking proposals for papers, especially but not exclusively from young scholars, graduate students, etc. Authors whose papers are selected for presentation/publication will also receive a modest honorarium from the Centre. For further information and the full Call for Papers, see here
