Call for Submissions: International Law in Times of Crisis

Many existential issues face humans in 21st Century, ranging from nuclear catastrophe to global warming and environmental degradation, massive migrations, and human rights violations. To spur thinking about the role international law could or should be playing in this current climate of crisis and its limitations to this end, International Law Blog is calling for submissions on these broad-based, global questions:

The conflict in Ukraine and the consequences of it which include an international food shortage and the arms race as well as the possibility of a nuclear strike or accident;

Climate change and (non-)compliance of world powers to the goals reaffirmed within the Glasgow Climate Pact ;

The rise of border administrations using ‘pushback’ methods as well as generalized detention and surveillance technologies to address immigration ;

The role of discipline in addressing the tough challenges facing the world community.

This list isn’t exhaustive. Any contributions that deal with the impacts or lack of the effects of international law concerning the current global challenges are appreciated.
