The Antonio Cassese Initiative for Justice, Peace and Humanity was founded to continue Antonio Cassese’s legacy and to promote global education, training, and research in the areas of human rights, peace, international justice, transitional justice, and development. To further its mission, the Cassese Initiative has issued a call for papers on new perspectives in international criminal law.
Abstracts, limited to 400 words, are due July 1st, 2013. Note that papers will be accepted only from students and young professionals under the age of 30.
Five abstracts will be selected and the authors will be invited to elaborate upon their ideas in a paper of around 8000 words. From these papers, one will be awarded the Cassese Initiative Prize and the author will receive a collection of books from Oxford University Press and her paper will be submitted for publication in the Journal of International Criminal Justice.
