The Cambridge International Law Journal Seventh Annual Conference: ‘Non-State Actors and International Law’ - Call for Papers

Date: 04/03/2018 - 04/04/2018       Location: Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge

The Editors of the Cambridge International Law Journal (CILJ) and the Conference Convenors welcome submissions for the Cambridge International Law Conference 2018, which will be held at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge on the 3rd and 4th of April 2018.


This year, the Conference invites the submission of papers under the theme ‘Non-State Actors and International Law’.  In addition to scholarly research which looks generally at armed groups, civil society, and transnational corporations in international law, the Conference is particularly interested in papers which explore the role of social media actors, as well as those which consider intersections with the economy, development, and society.  Papers which fall within the broad spectrum of the Conference and which offer new perspectives and conceptualisations of the theme are also highly welcome.  


Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be submitted together with your CV (separately uploaded) via this webpage by Friday, 8 December 2017.

Successful applicants will be notified by email by Friday, 12 January 2018. The authors of selected papers will be required to submit a 2,000-word extended abstract to [email protected] by Friday, 23 February 2018

Authors who present at the Conference will also be invited to submit their papers to be considered for publication in Volume 7(2), the conference issue of the Journal, to be published in December 2018, subject to the normal double-blind peer-review process. Authors will be contacted about this after the Conference.


Registration for the Conference will open in January 2018. Further information will be posted on the CILJ website in due course. In the interim, please contact [email protected]" style="box-sizing: border-box; color: rgb(68, 68, 68); text-decoration-line: none;">[email protected] with any questions or concerns.
