Many existential challenges face humanity in the 21st century ranging from the threat of nuclear disaster to global warming, environmental degradation, mass migrations and human rights abuses. To stimulate reflection on the role that international law can or should play in this crisis environment, and its limitations for this purpose, International Law Blog is launching a call for submissions on the following, broadly-conceived, global issues:
- The war in Ukraine and its consequences, including the global food crisis, the arms race and the threat of a nuclear attack or accident ;
- Climate change and the (non-)compliance of global powers with the objectives reaffirmed in the Glasgow Climate Pact ;
- The rise of border regimes relying on ‘pushback’ practices, generalised detention and surveillance technologies to respond to migration ;
- The role of the discipline in dealing with the momentous challenges facing the international community.
This list is not exhaustive; all contributions addressing the impact, or absence of impact, of international law in relation to current global challenges are welcome.
- The Deadline is 30 October 2022.
- Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org accompanied by a short bio or CV of the Author(s). Authors may also attach an image to appear with the post.
- Submissions should not exceed 1500 words in length.
- All the relevant sources should be hyperlinked within the text or cited in footnotes (OSCOLA standards apply).
- Submissions should be the original and unpublished work of the contributor; co-authorship is allowed.
- Our team will review submissions on a rolling basis as soon as we receive them so as to start publication in November 2022.
