Call for Papers on Space Law and International Economic Law
Here's a chance for you to publish a paper in India.
The Indian Journal of International Economic Law (IJIEL) invites submissions for its special issue on ‘Space Law and International Economic Law,’ covering all areas of intersection between Space Law and International Economic Law.
IJIEL is a peer-reviewed journal produced by the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore, funded by the Indian government sponsored chair on WTO law at NLSIU. The mandate of the journal encompasses all aspects of international economic law, especially from a developing country perspective. Its Editorial Board includes renowned and respected academics such as Professor Andrew Guzman, Ms. Jayashree Watal and Professor Yuji Iwasawa. Professor Jagdish Bhagwati wrote the foreword for our first issue. The journal has published its second issue in October 2009.
As a young journal, the JIEL tries to focus on new, contemporary and interesting areas and issues. One such area is the interface between international economic law and space law, particularly topics such as the umbrella of common benefit and interest which covers international trade in space products and information, or the international financial implications of multilateral space operations, or the extension of competition law and intellectual property rights to space operations, etc.
Submissions are sought in three categories: long Articles of 10,000-12,000 words, short articles of 5,000-8,000 words and notes or comments of 2,000-4,000 words. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2010. The issue will be published by the end of August, 2010. Citations should conform to the Bluebook system.
