Kudos to IntLawGrrl Nienke Grossman (pictured right), whose article Achieving Sex-Representative International Court Benches, published in the American Journal of International Law in January, is the subject of a new AJIL Unbound symposium. The symposium, which you can find here, features an introduction by Katerina Linos and responses from Cecily Rose, Neus Torbisco-Casals, and Memooda Ebrahim-Carstens. Heartfelt congratulations!
I am excited to announce the newest member of the American Society of International Law’s expansive collection of international law resources: AJIL Unbound. AJIL Unbound, an offshoot of the prestigious American Journal of International Law, is an online publication and forum that features timely discussions on international law. The hybrid e-publication/blog combines the substance of the deep-rooted Journal with the advantage of an open-access medium for discussion and debate.
AJIL Unbound’s inaugural edition showcases, as an experiment, a provocative discussion via exclusive online essays and a virtual symposium on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2013 decision of Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. Experts in the field will contribute to the conversation over the course of this week.
Be among the first to see the new AJIL Unbound on ASIL’s website here!
Call for AJIL Agora Submissions:
Transnational Human Rights Litigation After Kiobel
The American Journal of International Law is calling for short submissions (maximum 3000 words, including footnotes) for a forthcoming agora on “Transnational Human Rights Litigation After Kiobel.” Contributions must not have been previously published in whole or in substantial part (on the web or elsewhere). Some of the chosen contributions will be published in the October 2013 issue of the Journal. Other selected contributions may be published electronically in a special ASIL online publication. All contributions must be submitted no later than June 15 in order to be considered. Contributions on U.S. law issues, and on comparative and non-U.S. dimensions, are welcome. The editors aim to publish a set of distinctive contributions, rather than many making similar points. All selections for publication in AJIL or in the ASIL online publication will be peer reviewed by a committee of the AJIL editorial board consisting of Carlos Vázquez (chair), Curtis Bradley, and Ingrid Wuerth, in consultation with Co-Editors in Chief José Alvarez and Benedict Kingsbury. Decisions on publication (including requests for revisions) will be made on a rolling basis, but in any case no later than June 30. Submit contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Kiobel Agora” in the subject line.
