Announcements: Cambridge Asylum and Migration Studies; CfS UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence

Published on September 3, 2017        Author: 
1. Cambridge Asylum and Migration Studies. Cambridge University Press has launched a new book series: Cambridge Asylum and Migration Studies. The series is now accepting book proposals. At no time in modern history have so many people been on the move as at present. Migration facilitates critical social, economic, and humanitarian linkages. But it may also challenge prevailing notions of bounded political communities, of security, and of international law. The political and legal systems that regulate the transborder movement of persons were largely devised in the mid-twentieth century, and are showing the strains. New challenges have arisen for policymakers, advocates, and decision-makers that require the adaptation and evolution of traditional models to meet emerging imperatives.  This new series aims to be a forum for innovative writing on all aspects of the transitional movement of people. It publishes single or coauthored works that may be legal, political, or cross-disciplinary in nature. The series is edited by a world leader in international refugee law, Professor James Hathaway, University of Michigan. He is supported by an Editorial Advisory Board comprising Alexander Betts, University of Oxford, Vincent Chetail, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen, Raoul Wallenberg Institution of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, Audrey Macklin, University of Toronto, and Saskia Sassen, Colombia University. Potential authors should contact Finola O’Sullivan at Cambridge University Press, the series editor, or any member of the Editorial Advisory Board.
 
2. UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence Call for Submissions. The UCL Journal of Law and Jurisprudence is a law journal run by postgraduate students of the UCL Faculty of Laws. The Journal appears twice a year and will be available open access. All submissions are assessed through double blind peer review. The Editorial Board is pleased to call for submissions for the first issue of 2018 (Volume 7, Issue 1 (March 2018)). The Board welcomes papers covering all areas of law and jurisprudence. We accept articles of between 8,000 – 12,000 words, case notes of 6,000 – 8,000 words and book reviews of 1,000 – 2,000 words. All submissions must comply with the Oxford University Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA). Contributions that have already been published or that are under consideration for publication in other journals will not be considered. The deadline for submissions is 16 October 2017. Manuscripts must be uploaded via the submissions section on our website. For further information and guidelines for authors please visit our website.

2. Call for Papers: “Contingency in the Course of International Law: How International Law Could Have Been”, Amsterdam, 14-16 June 2018. The conference will ask a question that is deceptive in its simplicity: How might international law have been otherwise? We want to question the present state of international law by challenging its pretence to necessity and by better understanding the forces that have shaped it. Put simply with Robert Musil: “If there is a sense of reality, there must also be a sense of possibility.” Fleur Johns (UNSW) will give a public keynote and Samuel Moyn (Yale) will give a closing address. Please see here for more information. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 1 December 2017.

Published on August 20, 2017        Author: 

1. New additions to the UN Audiovisual Library of International Law. The Codification Division of the UN Office of Legal Affairs has added new lectures to the UN Audiovisual Library of International Law website, which provides high quality international law training and research materials to users around the world free of charge. The latest lectures were given by Professor Olivier Corten on “La légitime défense préventive : un oxymore?” and Professor Vaios Koutroulis on “The Beginning and End of Occupation”, “Le début et la fin de l’application du droit de l’occupation”.

2. Call for Papers: Conference on Humanitarianism and the Remaking of International Law: History, Ideology, Practice, Technology. The language and logic of humanitarianism occupy an increasingly central place in international law. Humanitarian reason has shaped the ideology, practice, and technologies of international law over the past century. For some, this trend is clearly positive – international law is reimagined as humanity’s law. Yet critics have pointed to the dark side of these developments and of the humanitarian logic operating within international law. This conference, held at Melbourne Law School on 31 May – 1 June 2018, will bring together scholars to think critically about the ideology, institutions, practices, and technologies that condition modern humanitarianism and its relation to international law. Those proposing papers for presentation at the conference should submit a one page abstract and brief bio by email to Professor Anne Orford at laureate-intlaw {at} unimelb.edu(.)au by 1 September 2017.  For more information and a list of confirmed speakers, please see here.

3. Financing & the Right to Science in Technology Transfer in the Sustainable Development Goals Workshop. The Department of International Law, University of Groningen invites abstracts for the forthcoming Workshop “Financing & the Right to Science in Technology Transfer in the Sustainable Development Goals”. The main question of this Workshop is whether international law can/should be a vehicle for establishing and operationalising legal principles, rules and/or standards for mobilising, sharing/distributing and allocating adequate resources in the implementation of the SDGs. The Workshop will take place on 24 November 2017, at the Faculty of Law, University of Groningen and it is part of the 2017-2018 Workshop Series “International Law for the Sustainable Development Goals”.  The detailed Call for Papers is available here and the deadline to submit abstracts is on 15 September 2017.
