* Call for papers – Stanford Law & Policy Review symposium on "National Defense Policy" (NOTE DEADLINE: AUGUST 1st)
The Stanford Law & Policy Review is soliciting articles for an upcoming symposium on “National Defense Policy.” The Stanford Law & Policy Review is a well-respected academic journal at Stanford Law School that explores current issues at the nexus of law and public policy. For each issue we solicit articles from prominent practitioners, policy makers, professors, judges, lawyers, political leaders, regulators, economists, and other experts. Past contributors include President (then Governor) Bill Clinton, Senator John McCain, and Governor Jeb Bush.
The National Defense Policy Symposium will be focused on recent changes and trends affecting national security and the ways in which law and policy may need to adapt in order to respond to these changes. Topics that we would like to cover in the symposium include:
– Veteran Affairs
– New Realms of Warfare (e.g. cyber-warfare, threat finance, etc.)
– Law of War (e.g. targeted killing, detention, etc.)
– Nation Building
– Counter-Insurgency / Counter-Terrorism
– Privatization and War (e.g. the role of private companies in modern warfare)
– Energy, Environment, and Defense
Submissions for publication may cover these topics or any other subject that fits within the broad framework of national security law and policy.
We will accept article submissions until August 1, 2010. Articles should be between ten and forty double-spaced pages, not including notes and citations. Articles should be submitted via e-mail to slpr.defense.symposium.
Selected articles will be published in May 2011. Authors will be invited to present their articles at a conference on national security law and policy at Stanford University.
The Stanford Law & Policy Review looks forward to reviewing your work. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
