nationalsecuritylaw Call for papers: Valparaiso Law Review Special Issue on “Direct Participation in Hostilities”

* Call for papers: Valparaiso Law Review Special Issue "The Geneva Conventions in 21st Century Warfare: How the Conventions Should Treat Civilians’ Direct Participation in Hostilities"

From the call for papers:

The Geneva Conventions differentiate between civilians and combatants. While this distinction made sense in the post-World War II world, the lines between civilian and combatant have blurred in recent years. This change in modern warfare tactics has raised questions about the Conventions’ applicability to the modern battlefield, and these questions are more pertinent in light of the on-going conflicts in Afghanistan, Libya, and elsewhere in the Middle East. The Valparaiso University Law Review will devote an entire issue of its 2012 edition to address the implications of this change in warfare.

This Call for Papers serves to solicit participants whose work might be published in the Law Review’s 2012 Special Issue. This special issue will not be a symposium. Instead the Law Review is seeking polished works from leading experts in this field. If you are interested in submitting a paper for publication, please provide a brief abstract of your proposal (preferably no more than 500 words) on or before June 1, 2011. Submissions should be sent electronically to Mr. Jonathan Sichtermann, Editor-in-Chief, Law Review, Valparaiso University School of Law, Jonathan.Sichtermann. After the Law Review has reviewed the submitted abstracts, we will issue invitations for submissions. Completed drafts will be due on October 1, 2011 and the editing process will begin shortly thereafter.

For further information regarding the Special Issue or submission requirements, please contact Mr. Sichtermann directly.
