August 3, 2010

* Call for Papers: The Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law, Maritime Operations-themed issue

The Yearbook of International Humanitarian Law invites submissions of manuscripts on international humanitarian law. Sponsored by the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, the YIHL is published by T.M.C. Asser Press/Cambridge University Press.

The editors are especially interested in receiving submissions on the topic of maritime operations for inclusion in Volume 13 [2010]. Possible topics include the applicability of IHL during counter-piracy operations, detention during maritime operations, maritime security zones, blockades, maritime operations during non-international armed conflicts and protection of the environment during maritime warfare.

The YIHL also accepts both articles and shorter pieces on "current developments" in IHL. Articles may address any topic in IHL and are not limited to the theme identified above; current developments pieces typically address IHL issues that have arisen during the year including, for example, codification, important publications and decisions of courts and tribunal.

Submissions may be made by e-mail to the Managing Editor, Dr. Louise Arimatsu at l.arimatsu. All submissions are peer reviewed. Questions may be addressed to Dr. Arimatsu or Professor Michael Schmitt, Editor-in-Chief at michael.schmitt.
