The Baltic Yearbook of International Law is published under the auspices of the Baltic Editorial Board within the framework of cooperation between the Riga Graduate School of Law and Brill/Nijhoff Publishers. The Yearbook aims to bring to the international debate issues of importance in the Baltic States, providing a forum for views on topical international law themes from Baltic and international scholars.
Volume 20 is devoted to the theme of Estonian Tradition in International Law and was put together mainly by international law scholars at the University of Tartu, the oldest Estonian university. It also includes papers from a symposium from a symposium "The approaches of non-Western States tointernational law and cyber operations", co-organized together with CCDCOE, the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence, in Tallinn.
The Yearbook contains state practice reports in 2020 from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, thus serving as an important source of international law unavailable elsewhere.
For the first time full content of the Yearbook is available in open access from Brill's website https://brill.com/view/journals/byio/20/1/byio.20.issue-1.xml. The open access version of this volume was funded by grant PRG969 of the Estonian Research Council and the contribution of the CCDCOE, the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence.
