One of the purposes of this blog is provide a forum for the discussion of scholarship published in EJIL. To that end we will, in the coming days and weeks, be hosting online symposia on the articles published in this issue. The purpose of these online symposia is to facilitate engagement with and conversations about the work published in the journal. We will invite particular scholars to comment on the articles published in the journal. However, we very much encourage readers to take part in this conversation by providing comments on work published in the journal or on the comments made on those articles.
This week, we will host the EJIL: Debate! between Mónica García-Salmones on the one hand and Rosie Cooney and Andrew Lang on the other hand on the topic of “Taking Uncertainty Seriously: Adaptive Governance and International Trade”.
