Call for Headnotes: International Institutional Practice Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic

Source: International Law Reporter

July 02, 2020

 Oxford International Organizations (OXIO), a database of annotated documents pertaining to the law of international organizations, has issued a call for headnotes on “International Institutional Practice Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic.” Here’s the call:

International organizations have been actively involved in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, covering issues ranging from governance in the health sector to the sovereign debt payment obligations of countries whose economy has been significantly affected. These actions are producing a rich collection of documents of international organizations. In actively addressing the challenges, the documents have stirred up debates and critiques that are of particular relevance to the law and practice of international organizations. OXIO is seeking to publish new headnotes regarding such new and current institutional practice (including but not limited to that of the World Health Organization) relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Oxford International Organizations (OXIO) is a database of annotated documents pertaining to the law of international organizations. The database is a unique and important repository, and the first of its kind, for acts and practices of international organizations which are of central importance to enquiries into international law, including international institutional law, and which have never been consolidated in one single tool. Learn more about the database on the About OXIO page.

Replies to the call should be addressed to oxio.editors@gmail.com and n.rusli@rug.nl.

The special issue will bring together theoretical, doctrinal, comparative and practical perspectives on the challenges and opportunities of new technologies for the investigation of international crimes. Submissions should range from 3,000 to 10,000 words, including abstract and footnotes, and should be sent by 31 October 2020, via e-mail to jicj {at} geneva-academy(.)ch.
