This conference via Zoom will take place on 6 April 2022, 9:30 AM-11:30 AM EST, hosted by the Center for the Middle East & International Law at George Mason University Scalia Law School. Registration & information here. Turkey’s 2018 incursion into Syria garnered international attention, but what has occurred since hasn’t. Not only does Turkey continue to occupy large swaths of Syrian territory, but it also has resettled many thousands of people there, in ways that significantly affect the ethnic demographics of the region – yet garnered almost no reaction from the international community.

10. Call for Papers: Online Workshop for Scholars Working on the Arms Trade and the Law. Every year, weapons are transferred in transactions valued at billions of dollars, involving not only major powers such as the USA, Russia, and China but almost every country in the Global North and South. Small arms and light weapons have caused the death of millions of individuals in civil wars in the last two decades, while new cyber products provide rulers with the means to surveil their populations and concentrate power. With the objective of establishing an international network of scholars studying the relationship between law and the arms trade broadly defined, researchers are invited to present works in progress in an online workshop to be held regularly during the 2022-23 academic year. Topics could include: the international regulation of arms trade, including formal rules, soft law arrangements, and transnational tort litigation; domestic arms export control regimes; the human rights obligations and corporate social responsibility of defense and cyber companies; the human rights obligations of arms exporting states; legal consciousness among actors in the arms trade; law and the environmental impact of the arms trade; and, regulating international trade in spyware. Deadline is 30 April 2022. More information  here
