Announcement: Sovereignty and Non-Intervention Event – State Cyberattacks; CfP Conference of the Postgraduate and Early Professionals/Academics Network of the Society of International Economic Law

Published on November 17, 2019        Author:

If so, on what basis and how are the principles of sovereignty and non-intervention relevant? This event will bring together a broad group of actors, including policymakers, the private sector, legal experts and civil society, and will be followed by a drinks reception. For more information, and to register interest, see here. The event will be chaired by Elizabeth Wilmshurst, Distinguished Fellow, International Law Programme, Chatham House.

Announcements: Conference, What Room for Military Assistance on Request in the International Legal Order; Lecture, On Data – Givens of Global Law

Published on November 10, 2019        Author: 

 

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 e.g. 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. The conference programme and registration link are available here.

Lecture: On Data – Givens of Global LawOn 20 November The Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (GLGSC) will host its Annual Lecture, to be delivered by Professor Fleur Johns. The title of the lecture is On Data: Givens of Global Law. This talk focuses on a medium in which people, places and things are being connected, divided, aggregated and distributed juridically on the global plane: digital data. It will explore how, to whom, under what conditions and in what formats digital data are being given in certain practices of contemporary international law: specifically, in aspects of international development and humanitarian work in which the adoption of digital data and data science techniques is being encouraged. More precisely, it will consider some ramifications of the growing digitization of two key knowledge formats for international law: facts and populations. It will ask what givens may be constituted or reconstituted – or what may be established, or re-established, about international law, legal actors, institutions and operations – in the process of this shift in knowledge practice. And it will touch, finally, on what might be at stake in these changing practices with regard to the CLGSC’s three, current thematic concerns: time and place; power and capital; aesthetics and materiality. More details can be found here

1. German Practice in International Law. German Practice in International Law (GPIL) publishes case studies on German State practice in the field of public international law. Each case study presents the German position on a particular question of public international law and puts that position in its wider factual and political context. Where applicable, it also records the reactions of other States and provides a legal assessment of the German position. Case studies are based on decisions by German courts, diplomatic notes, official government statements, answers to parliamentary questions, government reports, or statements before international organizations. All documents or extracts thereof not otherwise available in English are translated into English. GPIL covers the full spectrum of public international law ranging from air and space law to the use of force. The material is arranged in 35 broad subject categories. The material is presented without hyperlinks or references as many of the original documents will be in German. A fully referenced version of all entries will be published annually in book form. If you are interested in State practice, please check out GPIL here and subscribe to the newsletter.
