1. Conference: ‘What Room for Military Assistance on Request in the International Legal Order?’ On Thursday 5 and Friday 6 December 2019, the Journal on the Use of Force and International Law (JUFIL, Routledge) and the Ghent Rolin-Jaequemyns International Law Institute (GRILI) will host an international conference focusing on ‘military assistance on request’. Having regard to recent third-State interventions in Yemen, Syria and elsewhere, the conference seeks to explore the legal framework governing such interventions, including relevant uncertainties and shortcomings as well as proposals de lege ferenda. Separate expert panels will be devoted to the ‘authority’ to invite outside intervention on the one hand, and the permissibility of third-State intervention in situations of civil war on the other hand. Confirmed panelists include inter alia Prof. Anne Orford (University of Melbourne), Prof. Eliav Lieblich (University of Tel Aviv), Prof. Gregory Fox (Wayne State University), Prof. Raphaël Van Steenberghe (Université catholique de Louvain-la-neuve), Prof. Karine Bannelier-Christakis (Université Grenoble-Alpes), Prof. Erika De Wet (University of Pretoria and University of Bonn), Prof. Alonso Gurmendi-Dunkelberg (Universidad del Pacifico), and Prof. Christian Henderson (University of Sussex). The conference programme and registration link are available here.

2. BISA Working Group on Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding. The BISA Working Group on Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding, with funding from the BISA Postgraduate Network, is organising an interdisciplinary PGR workshop entitled ‘Militarisation and the Local in Peacekeeping: Ambition, Pragmatism and Adaptability’ to be held at City, University of London on 20 September 2019. The workshop is the first of a four part series incorporating practitioners as well as academics and will explore challenges to peacekeeping through the lens of the local. Approaches to peacekeeping operations are increasingly in tension between pragmatic approaches which seek realistically achievable outcomes and ambitious approaches rooted in humanitarian commitments and human rights. We have seen increasingly complex mandates, robust and militarised missions which may negatively affect the local. Topics of interest include how best to pursue human rights and to incorporate local needs, the effect of militarisation and counter-terrorism in peacekeeping mandates, and how these challenges impact human security and building peace. Please send abstracts (of no more than 250 words) to Alexander.Gilder {at} city.ac(.)uk and ss17sw {at} leeds.ac(.)uk no later than 31 July 2019. Further information, including travel bursaries and attendance, can be found here.

2. Professor of International Law and Human Rights, Lund (Sweden). The Faculty of Law at Lund University intends to appoint full-time Professor of International Law and Human Rights with a starting date of 1 April 2020. Applications are to be submitted by 12 September 2019.

3. ILaW Discussion on ICC Decision in the Al-Bashir Case. ILaW (International Law at Westminster), in co-operation with the ILSA at Westminster Chapter, is organising a rapid response event to discuss the recent decision of the International Criminal Court on head of state immunity in the Al-Bashir case. The event will take place on Wednesday 19 June 2019, 17.30 – 19.30 at the University of Westminster (4-12 Little Titchfield Street, Room 2.05C). It will gather scholars and practitioners to address the many contentious issues that are at the centre of the decision, taking into account customary international law, the mandate of the International Criminal Court in the fight against impunity, and the relationship between the Court and the UN. Register interest here
 
4. Call for Papers: Exploratory Workshop on Constitutions of Value. This workshop, which will take place 12 – 13 December 2019 at the University of Würzburg, has been convened by Isabel Feichtner (Würzburg) and Geoff Gordon (The Hague). This symposium intends to take a view of value not as exogenous to law and society, not merely something to be identified, promoted and protected by law. Rather, it will begin from a view of value, value production and measurement as endogenous. It is proposed to engage in a constitutional study of value that not only looks to the role of law, but also to the material dimensions of value production. The organisers seek to examine the ways in which value is (co-)constituted, structured and shaped by law, politics, science and technology, and thus hope to advance understanding of the foundational role of value in political economy as well as the law like effects of values and value measurements so constituted.
