CILJ call for papers: Strengthening Global Governance through International Law: Challenges and Opportunities.

The Editorial Board of the Cambridge International Law Journal is pleased to invite submissions for Volume 11 (2) to be published in December 2022 on the theme ‘Strengthening Global Governance through International Law: Challenges and Opportunities.

Global governance bodies increasingly perform activities of government, including through the regulation of individual human and collective State activity. Yet the integrity of global governance today is contingent on the function and role of international law. This is evidenced by States actively expanding the breadth and scope of international rules to regulate emerging challenges, including sea-level rise and cyberspace. The development of international rules on themes such as marine activities, armed conflict, international trade, and human rights, equally demonstrate the contribution of international law. However, as the Sustainable Development Goals indicate, international law must rise to meet new issues, including eradicating hunger and poverty, empowering girls and women, and protecting the environment. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic reminds us that for crises faced by humankind, solutions must be coordinated at a global scale.

The Editorial Board welcomes diverse contributions that focus on one or more subject matter areas of international law or EU law, such as the role of international courts and tribunals, environmental law, cyberspace, trade and investment, human rights, and international humanitarian law and security, for example.

The Board also welcomes long articles and case notes that engage with current themes in international law.

All submissions are subject to double-blind peer review by the Journal’s Editorial Board. In addition, long articles are sent to the Academic Review Board, which consists of distinguished international law scholars and practitioners. Submissions can be made at any time. Articles submitted by 13 May 2022 will be considered for Volume 11 Issue 2.
