Junior Faculty Forum for International Law

An Annual Junior Faculty Forum for International Law is a new and much needed venture in the international law calendar to be convened by Dino Kritsiotis, Professor of Public International Law at the Universityof Nottingham, Anne Orford, Michael D. Kirby Professor of International Law at the Universityof Melbourne, and myself. The Forum is designed as an annual event to allow international legal scholars, in the first six years of their academic career, an opportunity to discuss a working paper, idea or set of arguments, by being paired with a senior scholar in the field of international law who will be assigned to comment on the paper when it is presented to the Forum. The inaugural Forum will be hosted by the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice at NYU. It will take place in New York City in May 2012, and, to mark the importance of this initiative, selected presentations from the inaugural Forum will be invited to appear in EJIL.  Full details and application procedures may be found at www.annualjuniorfacultyforumil.org

The Last Page and Roaming Charges

We have had nice reactions (not by everyone) to The Last Pages and Roaming Charges. I would like to remind those of our readers who also dabble in poetry or photography not to hesitate and submit their work for consideration. Kindly email: ejil{at}eui.eu.

Eric Stein RIP

It is with infinite sadness that we mark the passing of Eric Stein, my friend and mentor of many years. As a scholar Eric made signal contributions to the fields of International, comparative and European law. His career spanned the vital moments of  the 20th century: a Jewish escapee  fromCzechoslovakiato theUSAhe served with the American Army inEurope, was involved with both the nascent UN and then, prophetically, with the nascent project of European Integration. As a human being, his life, alongside his wife Virginia, was rich and marked by an uncommon generosity of spirit and endless intellectual curiosity and energy. He died a young 98 years old. In our Last Page we publish a Poem written by Eric Stein.
