The guest co-editors — Emma Irving, Alexa Koenig, Yvonne McDermott, and Daragh Murray — together with the Journal of International Criminal Justice‘s Editorial Board, invite paper submissions for a forthcoming special issue on “New technologies and the investigation of international crimes”, to be published in July 2021.
New technologies are fundamentally changing the way that international crimes are investigated and how accountability for such crimes is pursued. Digital technologies have made the commission of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide visible in new and compelling ways, expanding the toolkit available to identify such crimes and hold perpetrators to account.
The special issue will bring together theoretical, doctrinal, comparative and practical perspectives on the challenges and opportunities of new technologies for the investigation of international crimes.
Submissions should range from 3,000 to 10,000 words in length, including abstract and footnotes, and should be sent by 31 October 2020, via e-mail to jicj(at)geneva-academy.ch. Submissions will be evaluated by the symposium’s editorial team, and subject to peer review. For more information, please access the full call for papers here.
