(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers)
I'd like to share a call for papers from the Iberoamerican Institute for Peace, Human Rights and International Justice, founded recently in The Hague by Utrecht Law Professor Héctor Olásolo.
The call is for an essay competition created in honour of the first judges of the International Criminal Court from Latin America.
To be honoured are Judge Sylvia Steiner of Brazil, Judge Elisabeth Odio Benito of Costa Rica, and Judge René Blatmann of Bolivia, who from the Pre-Trial and Trial chambers have contributed to the creating of the initial jurisprudence of the ICC.
The essay contest seeks to promote the development of academic writing on international criminal law in Spanish under two categories, one for students through the bachelor's degree level, and another for researchers with a master's or Ph.D. degree.
The competition is open to individuals who:
► Reside in any Latin American country where Spanish or Portuguese (the languages of contest submissions) is spoken, or
► Are affiliated to institutions based in this region. The deadline for the essays in 30 November 2012. More information is available here.
