In light of her outstanding and inspiring achievements in the field of international dispute settlement, the Law & Practice of International Courts and Tribunals (LPICT) has named a Prize in honour of H.E. Rosalyn Higgins.

The Rosalyn Higgins Prize is an annual prize which awards EUR 1.000 of Brill book vouchers and a LPICT subscription to the author of the best article on the law and practice of the International Court of Justice, either solely focusing on the ICJ or with the ICJ as one of the dispute settlement mechanisms under consideration. The winning article will also be published in LPICT and made freely available online to maximize its dissemination.

Competition for the Prize is open to all: scholars as well as practitioners, junior as well as senior professionals. Submissions will be selected via a double-blind peer review process by a Prize Committee, including both co-Editors-in-Chief.

Exceptionally, two papers of an equally high standard can be selected. The Committee is also able to choose not to award the Prize if in its opinion none of the submitted papers reaches the required standards.

Submissions should be between 6.500 and 8.000 words in length, not yet published or under review elsewhere. Other submission requirements are the same as for regular LPICT submissions (instructions available here).

Submissions now open! Deadline: 31 August 2019

Call for Submissions: Italian Yearbook/Challenges to Multilateralism in International Economic Law (Reminder)       

Source: International Law Reporter

April 22, 2019

 he Italian Yearbook of International Law has issued a call for submissions its forthcoming volume, including a symposium on “Challenges to Multilateralism in International Economic Law.” Here’s the call:

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Italian Yearbook of International Law, Volume XXIX (2019)

Challenges to Multilateralism in International Economic Law

Volume XXIX-2019 of the Italian Yearbook of International Law (IYIL) will include a Symposium on “Challenges to Multilateralism in International Economic Law”, which will be edited in cooperation with the Interest Group on International and Supranational Organizations of the Italian Society of International and European Union Law.

Established at the end of WWII in a joint effort to promote international economic exchanges and foster international peace and security, the current multilateral framework governing international economic relations is under pressure. A new economic world order seems to be emerging in which states intensively use protectionist tools “to achieve strategic and political goals” thus limiting the role of law and increasing the use of power politics (Puig). The role of international adjudication to settle international economic disputes is also jeopardized by the growing recourse to unilateral sanctions, unilateral responses to such moves, and attempts to block the effective functioning of the Appellate Body of the WTO. It is now time to take stock of these challenges to multilateralism from an international law perspective.

The Editors welcome submissions of abstracts showing a critical and/or innovative perspective on any of the following aspects:

  • The future of multilateralism and mega-agreements (i.e. CETA, EU-Japan, CTPP, NAFTA/USMCA, RCEP, or AfCTFA): is Article XXIV GATT still relevant?
  • Trade Wars: legal implications for multilateralism
  • The future of WTO dispute settlement mechanism and its independence
  • Prospects for international investment law and implications for bilateralism, regionalism and multilateralism
  • The future of international investment dispute settlement between the reform of ICSID Rules and the proposal of a Multilateral Investment Court
  • The main challenges to multilateralism in the field of international development assistance and peace support
  • The state of multilateralism in international financial institutions
  • Empirical support for (or against) the assumption that multilateralism is the preferred approach in international economic law

Abstracts of no more than 500 words, written in English and including the author’s name and e-mail address should be submitted to the IYIL Editors, e-mail address: italianyearbook@gmail.com. A half-page (max one-page) curriculum vitae must be included in the file containing the abstract. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 10 May 2019. Successful applicants will be notified via e-mail by 1 June 2019 and must submit the final draft paper (10.000-12.000 words, including footnotes) by 15 October 2019. A colloquium on “Challenges to Multilateralism in International Economic Law” will be convened in November 2019 and on that occasion the authors of the accepted papers will be invited to present their works, which will eventually be published in the Italian Yearbook of International Law after a double-blind peer-review process.

Work On! International Law Weekend 2019     

Source: Jurist

April 21, 2019

The American Branch of the International Law Association welcomes panel proposals from academics and practitioners for its International Law Weekend. It will take place October 10-12, 2019 in New York City.The theme is The Resilience of International Law.

In recent years, the international legal system has been challenged at home and abroad. Growing nationalism, shifts in geo-political power, deepening economic inequality, climate change, and a global migration crisis have generated cracks in the established international order. These schisms have been exacerbated by other factors, including the power of private corporations over speech platforms and personal data and the rapid progression of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. Even our discipline and profession are challenged with growing calls for inclusivity of diverse voices. Can the international legal system adapt to address these profound developments?

ILW 2019 will address the resilience of international law. The conference will explore international law’s capacity to preserve the rule of law, promote both peace and justice, and maintain stability in the face of growing fault lines. The world is changing. ILW 2019 seeks to answer whether its theme—The Resilience of International Law—is a question or an affirmation.

Deadline to submit panel proposals is May 15, 2019 and can be done through this portal.
