1. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Law Lecture. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is hosting its 2022 FAO Law Lecture: Legal reflections on “Leave no one behind. Better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life”. It will be delivered by Professor Philippe Sands on Monday 31 October 2022, from 14:00 to 15:30 CET. This is the inaugural event of a new series of annual Law Lectures the FAO is launching, celebrating the annual World Food Day, which commemorates the establishment of FAO. The aim is to provide a forum in which experts can reflect and share their thoughts on legal aspects of FAO’s mandate, including from a general public international law perspective. The Lecture will be delivered virtually, with interpretation in all official FAO languages (Arabic, English, Spanish, French, Russian and Chinese) and will conclude with a  Q&A session.  For further information and to register see here

3. EJIL Podcast: Episode 17. What’s wrong with the international law on jurisdiction? What conduct occurring where are states allowed to regulate? The international law on jurisdiction provides part of the answer. But international lawyers use different images when conceptualising the geographical reach of states’ jurisdiction to prescribe their laws. In this podcast, the two contenders in a debate in issue 33(2) of the European Journal of International Law engage with each other’s images and their ensuing conclusions as to the international law of jurisdiction. Nico Krisch posits that the traditional image is inappropriate, that in practice jurisdiction – at least when it relates to global markets – has come “unbound” and that this unbound jurisdiction has allowed  economically powerful states to exercise global governance in a hierarchical fashion, triggering fresh demands for public accountabilityRoger O’Keefe replies that this supposedly traditional image was never his understanding, argues that the current law of jurisdiction is fit for purpose and cautions against blaming this law for the perpetuation of the world’s economic inequalities. EJIL Editor in Chief Sarah Nouwen hosts the debate.
