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.
