The editors of the Baltic Yearbook of International Law announce a call for papers for volume 23 on a theme: “Lithuanian tradition in and research on international law”.
Research papers should concern themes within the field of international law that traditionally or recently have been researched in Lithuania, or should otherwise be addressed by scholars and practicing lawyers in international law that have a background in Lithuania. They could deal with questions of the history of international law in Lithuania or look to the present and future. For example, one can deal with the role of the smaller states in responding to the major challenge to their security and the world order – the ongoing aggression against Ukraine, including accountability of the authoritarian regimes, or any other specific legal issue in areas prominent in Lithuania, such as the hybrid threats to international and national security, including disinformation and instrumentalized migration. One could also look at Lithuania’s experiences in the UN, European and other international institutions. We welcome all good topics related to international law, either coming from Lithuania or with the Lithuanian angle.
Articles should be submitted by 30 September 2024. They should be sent to the following address: ligita.gjortlere(abols)rgsl.edu.lv.
