A reminder from GoJIL: Call for Submissions for Special Issue on “Protection of the Environment in Relation to Armed Conflict – Beyond the ILC”.
The International Law Commission included the topic “Protection of the Environment in Relation to Armed Conflict” in 2011 on its future program of work. It is now in the stage of finalizing the project by drafting principles that address the phases of pre-conflict, during conflict, and post-conflict in light of different fields of international law, in particular laws of armed conflict, human rights law and international environmental law. This GoJIL special issue attempts to consolidate the legal protection of the environment during the three phases of armed conflict by the laws of armed conflict, human rights law and international environmental law. Contributions should address one (or several) of the three conflict phases with regard to environmental protection.
Deadline for the submission of abstracts is 1 June 2019. All articles must be submitted 1 August 2019. Selected contributions will then be published in Issue 1 of Vol. 10 in 2020. The full GoJIL call for papers can be found here.
