3. ILaW Discussion on ICC Decision in the Al-Bashir Case. ILaW (International Law at Westminster), in co-operation with the ILSA at Westminster Chapter, is organising a rapid response event to discuss the recent decision of the International Criminal Court on head of state immunity in the Al-Bashir case. The event will take place on Wednesday 19 June 2019, 17.30 – 19.30 at the University of Westminster (4-12 Little Titchfield Street, Room 2.05C).

Register interest here
 
4. Call for Papers: Exploratory Workshop on Constitutions of Value. This workshop, which will take place 12 – 13 December 2019 at the University of Würzburg, has been convened by Isabel Feichtner (Würzburg) and Geoff Gordon (The Hague). This symposium intends to take a view of value not as exogenous to law and society, not merely something to be identified, promoted and protected by law. Rather, it will begin from a view of value, value production and measurement as endogenous. It is proposed to engage in a constitutional study of value that not only looks to the role of law, but also to the material dimensions of value production. The organisers seek to examine the ways in which value is (co-)constituted, structured and shaped by law, politics, science and technology, and thus hope to advance understanding of the foundational role of value in political economy as well as the law like effects of values and value measurements so constituted.

1. Workshop on The Paths of Change in International Law. The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies is hosting an interdisciplinary workshop on The Paths of Change in International Law in Geneva on 6 – 7 June 2019. The workshop is part of an ERC-funded research project on processes of informal change in the international legal order and asks how international law changes, how this change is registered among participants in legal discourses, and how the pathways of change differ across issue areas and sites of international legal practice. The workshop will bring together leading and rising scholars from different disciplines – law, international relations, and political sociology – to explore these issues in a small and interactive format. More information is available here

2. The Prosecution of International Crimes in the UK: Present Problems and Future Possibilities. 6.30pm Tuesday 18 June 2019, Hogan Lovells, Holborn, London EC1A 2FG. Various pieces of legislation have been enacted in the UK to allow those suspected of having committed international crimes to be prosecuted domestically; the most notable example of such legislation is the International Criminal Court Act 2001, which gives effect to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Despite this, the prosecution of individuals in UK courts for international crimes remains incredibly rare, with other countries, such as Spain, Germany and Sweden taking the lead on this issue. In light of recent reports that individuals suspected of playing key roles in the 1994 Rwandan Genocide may be prosecuted in the UK in the near future, this Human Rights Lawyers Association organised panel event will discuss why prosecutions for international crimes have been wanting thus far and examine whether there is a future for such prosecutions in UK courts. To RSVP for this free event, please contact administrator@hrla.org.uk.

3. Call for Papers: The Trials and Prospects of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Berlin Forum on Global Politics (Berlin, Germany), the Institute for Global Dialogue (Pretoria, South Africa) and the RECLAIM! Universal Human Rights Initiative (Germany, United States, and France) are pleased to announce their joint collaboration on an international call for papers on the trials and prospects of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is the landmark document for the international human rights movement of the 20th century and remains its legal bedrock today. The aim of the multi-author publication is to share ideas that will make this document more effective in the world than it has been as a protector of human dignity and security. The publication will be revised and edited by experienced academics, and published as a free-to-the public .pdf formatted document – licensed as a CC-BY (Attribution only) Creative Commons. This will allow to inform a multiplicity of stakeholders about the UDHR and how its reaffirmation can address and effectively contribute to resolving the challenges of our times. The deadline for submitting papers is 24 June 2019. For further information, please read the call for papers  hereRead the rest of this entry…
