Opening the Volume 19 of the Baltic Yearbook of International Law, Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) is organizing a seminar on Latvian tradition in international law on 2 November 2021. The seminar will be held online from 10:00–12:00 in Latvian.
«Concepts such as statehood, territorial integrity, equal participation in international decision-making and, recently, the rule of law in international law, have been of relevance and interest both in practice and academic research in the field of international law in Latvia. The proposition is put forward that research in international law by the scholars of a particular State is closely linked to the interests and issues which that State is confronted with in practice,» says the Yearbook editor, RGSL Professor and Judge at the European Court of Justice Ineta Ziemele.
The Baltic Yearbook of International Law – the first legal journal in the field and subfields of international law – is published under the auspices of the Baltic Editorial Board within the framework of cooperation between RGSL 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 with a symposium on the question of the international legal status of the Baltic States.
The Yearbook contains state practice reports from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, thus serving as an important and unique source of international law.
