1. Organizational Unit: UNU Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies. The United Nations University (UNU) is searching for an entrepreneurial director for its Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS) in Bruges, Belgium. The Institute undertakes solution-oriented, policy-relevant research on the impact of regional integration in policymaking across all levels of political organisation.

2. Journal of International Criminal Justice Call for Submissions. To mark 15 years since the coming into force of the Statute of the ICC on 1 July 2002, the Journal of International Criminal Justice is pleased to announce a forthcoming symposium on The International Criminal Court’s Policies and Strategies’ to be published in July 2017. The Court and its various organs have continually issued a number of documents explaining the Court’s policies on numerous distinct issues as well as its strategies for the future. The Journal’s Editorial Committee believes that the time has come to take a closer and systematic look at these documents, looking at the choices made thus far, the level of transparency and consistency, as well as suggesting avenues to strengthen the overall effectiveness and credibility of ICC investigative and prosecutorial strategies. The Journal calls for submission of abstracts not exceeding 500 words by no later than 15 November 2016. The Editorial Committee will invite a number of contributors to submit full papers of no more than 8000 words (including an abstract and footnotes) by 28 February 2016. For more information about the call, see here or contact the Executive Editor at jicj {at} geneva-academy(.)ch.

3. Cambridge International Law Journal Call for Submissions. The Editors of the Cambridge International Law Journal (CILJ) and Conference Convenors welcome submissions for the Cambridge International and European Law Conference 2017, which will be held in the Faculty of Law, the University of Cambridge on 23 – 24 March 2017. The theme of the conference is ‘Transforming Institutions.’ This is intended to stimulate the exploration of interactions between law and institutions in transformative contexts. Broadly conceived, transformation may refer to: (1) the manner in which the functions of institutions may change over time; (2) how institutions may act as agents of transformation; and (3) how institutions themselves can be subjected to transformation. The organisers invite submissions to consider how structures and norms under European and International Legal systems relate to, influence and are affected by ‘transforming institutions’. Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted by 25 November 2016. The authors of selected papers will be required to submit a 2000 word extended abstract by 24 February 2017. Authors who present at the Conference will also be invited to submit their papers for publication in Volume 6(2) of the CILJ, to be published in the summer of 2017. For more information see here. For further information please contact conference {at}

4. International Network on Transnational Legal and Political Theory Call for Papers. International Network on Transnational Legal and Political Theory has issued its Call for Papers for its 4th Annual Conference. The conference will be hosted by Bar-Ilan Faculty of Law, Israel, 7-8 May 2017. For more information on the conference, see here. The conference aims to provide scholars with an opportunity to present and discuss work in progress on key questions faced by transnational legal and political theory. The field of transnational and political theory is undergoing major changes. As trends of globalization intensify, cross-border legal, political, economic, social (and other) links increase, scholarship in the field is rapidly expanding and diversifying. Such times invite a reflection on the state of the field – mapping the main topics of discussion, assessing its major contributions thus far, identifying existing gaps, and critically thinking about possible trajectories to be pursued in the future. Prospective participants are invited to submit their applications by 15 November 2016 to the conference conveners at oren.perez {at} {at} and ziv.bohrer {at} Submissions should include an abstract of 500 – 750 words (in English), your name(s), affiliation(s) and contact information and a brief bio. Any questions about the conference may be directed by email to the conference conveners in the email addresses indicated above.
