Write On! "Gender in European & International Law"

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers)

From IntLawGrrls reader Joanna Madej, who is studying Public International Law at the Netherlands' Utrecht University (from which this 'Grrl's honored to have received an honorary doctorate), comes an invitation to contribute to Merkourios: Utrecht Journal of International and European Law. Joanna, who is the journal's Junior Solicitations Editor, writes:
'Merkourios is a student-run journal, seeking to establish itself in the academic community. We would be extremely grateful if you and your colleagues at IntLawGrrls might submit articles, or perhaps help spread the word about our publication.'
Her invitation, extended to students and law lecturers and professors alike, is particularly aimed at a forthcoming 77th edition, on "Gender in European and International Law." Papers of no more than 15,000 words including footnotes, and conforming to the Oxford Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities thus are welcome, Joanna writes,
'addressing any gender-related issue; topics may include, but are not limited to international and/or European human rights law issues such as non-discrimination, employment, corporate social responsibility, health, family life, children’s rights, hate speech, terrorism and the process to strengthen the treaty body system, as well as other areas of international law such as peacekeeping, international humanitarian law, environmental law, women and development, indigenous law, refugee and migration law, legal ethics, and international customary law.'
Deadline for abstracts is February 13, 2013; for paper submissions, March 13, 2013. For information, e-mail
