Volume 20 of the Baltic Yearbook of International Law (at Brill) will be launched 8 February 2023 at the Estonian Academy of Sciences in Tallinn.
The yearbook is dedicated to the Estonian tradition of international law and also contains a symposium on non-Western approaches to the regulation of cyber conflicts in international law which was organized in cooperation between CCDCOE and the University of Tartu School of Law.
The launch of the yearbook will take place in the Estonian Academy of Sciences (Kohtu 6) in Tallinn on Wednesday 8th February 2023 at 15:00-17:00.
In the first part of the event, Ligita Gjortlere (Riga Graduate School of Law), Lauri Mälksoo (University of Tartu) and Dainius Žalimas (University of Kaunas) will discuss the place of the Baltic Yearbook of International Law in the landscape of international legal publications. We also reach out to potential new authors and discuss how to get published in the Baltic Yearbook in the future.
In the second part, Lauri Mälksoo will have a conversation with two authors of the yearbook focusing on the Estonian tradition: Carri Ginter (University of Tartu) on EU law and Liina Lumiste (CCDCOE) on cyber conflicts and international law from non-Western perspectives.
The Baltic Yearbook of International Law (BYIL) is published under the auspices of the Baltic Editorial Board within the framework of cooperation between Riga Graduate School of Law and Brill/Nijhoff Publishers. The Yearbook aims to bring to the international debate issues that are of importance in the Baltic States, providing a forum for views on topical international law themes from Baltic and international scholars. The first volume appeared in 2001.
The Yearbook contains state practice reports from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, thus serving as an important and unique source of international law.
The event is free but registration by e-mail is needed at kerli.mangelsoo(abols)ut.ee.
