Call for Papers

The Editors welcome submissions for volume 63 (2020) of the GYIL, inviting interested parties to submit contributions for consideration for inclusion in the forthcoming edition.

CALL FOR PAPERS

2020 has proven to be the most consequential year in modern history. Recent global events have highlighted the existence of serious challenges for international law and its institutions. The German Yearbook for International Law (GYIL) wishes to open submissions for articles on all topics of relevance to public international law. In particular, however, we are interested in articles addressing recent international developments such as the impact of Covid-19 on global health and the World Health Organisation, the international dimensions of the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight against racism, the ongoing struggle against climate change, and the implications of political and legal changes in Hong Kong for democracy . Submissions from the entire academic community are welcomed. Articles will be independently peer-reviewed by a board of renowned experts. All work submitted will be scrutinised based on its intellectual quality and its advancement of academic discourse.

Submission Guidelines
Papers submitted should be in English, be between 10,000-12,500 words (inclusive of footnotes), and conform with the house style of the GYIL (which is available on our website). Submissions, including a brief abstract, statement of affiliation, and confirmation of exclusive submission, should be sent by 1 October 2020 to the Assistant Editor of the GYIL via e-mail: yearbook@wsi.uni-kiel.de.
