The International Community Law Review is a peer-reviewed academic journal, published quarterly by Brill/Nijhoff.

• The World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the protection of natural resources;
• Standard of review in the context of the International Court of Justice case Whaling in the Antarctic (Australia v. Japan: New Zealand intervening);
• The input of the WTO in the development of the law of treaties, especially in relation to:

Source: International Law Reporter
The Goettingen Journal of International Law has issued a call for submissions for a special issue on “Protection of the Atmosphere in International Law.” Here’s the call:
The Goettingen Journal of International Law will dedicate Vol. 7 Issue No. 2 to the protection of the atmosphere in international law.
The atmosphere is our planet’s largest single natural resource and is vital to the survival of humankind and any life on earth. Therefore, the degradation of the atmosphere’s condition has long been a matter of concern to large segments of the international community. In 2013, the United Nation’s International Law Commission (ILC) took up this issue. Several conventions regulate atmospheric and related issues, yet there is still no coherent legal framework addressing the protection of the atmosphere. The work by the ILC will be the first attempt to derive rules from the current practice of States addressing the atmosphere’s protection. However, the work by the ILC is significantly complicated by the restrained scope of the topic, as the Commission deliberately decided not to deal with, inter alia, questions of liability, the polluter-pays principle, and the principle of precaution.
In order to foster and critically accompany the codification and progressive development of the law surrounding the protection of the atmosphere, the Goettingen Journal of International Law, one of Germany’s leading international law publications, will dedicate the second issue of its seventh volume to this topic. The Editors are therefore inviting authors to submit papers on this subject. Submissions from an international law background as well as other disciplines such as international relations, geography, earth sciences, etc. are welcome. Papers will be submitted to a double-blind peer review and should not exceed 15,000 words including footnotes.
The deadline for submissions is the 15th of July 2015. For further information, please contact the Editors at info(at)gojil.eu

Call for Papers: 15th BIICL WTO Conference

As originally established by University Professor John H. Jackson of Georgetown, and Professor Sir Francis Jacobs, KCMG, QC, a Trustee of BIICL, the Annual WTO Conference has a longstanding affiliation with the Journal of International Economic Law, published by the Oxford University Press. The Annual WTO Conference is one of the most important and prestigious conferences addressing developments in international trade law, pursuing cutting-edge issues of interest to academics and practitioners alike.
The 15th Annual WTO Conference will this year take place on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 May 2015 at Goodenough College, London. Further information on the event is available here.
The Annual WTO Conference has traditionally selected speakers by invitation only; this year, however, the organisers have decided to conduct a call for papers aimed at opening opportunities for younger scholars to present their research and analysis at the conference. The organizers will consider proposals, in the form of an abstract or a completed short paper, submitted on or before 28 February 2015, for inclusion on the panels being organised on the following six topics:
1. The Revival of Export Controls and Trade Sanctions: The Russia-Ukraine Conflict and Beyond
2. WTO Accession Protocols and Other Non-Treaty WTO Instruments or Texts: Legal Status and Interpretation in WTO Dispute Settlement
3. Restoring the Negotiating Function of the WTO: Are there Alternatives to the Single-Speed, Single Undertaking Approach?
4. Measures Pursuing Multiple Policy Objectives: The Scope of Application and Overlapping Disciplines in GATT-TBT-SPS After Seals
5. The “Plain Packaging” Public Health Strategy: Tobacco Products, Alcohol, Sugary Products: What Role (If Any) For the WTO?
