10. Call for Submissions: The Polish Review of International and European Law. The Polish Review of International and European Law invites submissions for an issue on self-determination of peoples in the context of contemporary international developments (expected publication date: second half of 2024) Although the principle of self-determination has been enshrined in several international instruments, most notably the United Nations Charter, it has been defined in a rather imprecise manner. As a result, there exists some tension between the principle of self-determination of peoples and the other fundamental principles, in particular territorial integrity and the non-intervention. Furthermore, the current practice suggest the need to evaluate the application of the principle of self-determination in connection with other issues such as self-determination supported by third states and international organizations; self-determination and occupation and secession; self-determination and racial discrimination; use and abuse of the right of self-determination by peoples and states; right of self-determination as an ius cogens norm and generating erga omnes obligations;  right to self-determination and the obligation not to recognise an illegal situation resulting from that right and not to render aid or assistance in maintaining that situation; and, right to self-determination and economic development including disposal of wealth and natural resources of the occupied territory.
