CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS: DEADLY VOYAGES

Deadly Voyages

Submission Deadline: 30 November 2017

Migrants the world over have been compelled to make deadly voyages to escape harsh conditions in pursuit of a better life. Whether it is fatal journey made by “Boat People” to Australia; migrants desperately crossing the Mediterranean; Syrian refugees converging at the frontiers of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt; or unaccompanied minors from “Northern Triangle” nations trekking thousands of miles on to enter the United States via Mexico; their vulnerability is certain. Many fall prey to traffickers, smugglers, violence, exploitation and death. For instance, Amnesty International reports that, at the current rate of 2.7 deaths per every 100 people, 2017 promises to be the deadliest year for refugees crossing the Mediterranean. Despite the increasing number of deaths of forced migrants, international law and communities struggle with coordinating socio-legal and humanitarian efforts to effectively address the current global migrant crisis. The purpose of this forthcoming book is to examine the efficacy of international, regional, national and local responses to deadly voyages of forced migrants globally. Interested authors should send a title (12 words maximum); brief description of your proposed chapter (300-500 words maximum); and a CV to veronica.fynnbruey@tuki-tumarankeh.org no later than 30 November 2017.

CALL FOR PAPERS: 2018 SNX

2018 SNX (South-North Exchange Conference)
From Extraction to Emancipation: Development Reimagined

Antigua, Guatemala
May 18-19, 2018

Submission Deadline: 30 November 2017

In July 2015, a delegation of law professors and lawyers from the United States and Canada traveled to Guatemala to study sustainable development. That study inspired the group to produce an edited volume, to be published in early 2018 by the ABA Section of International Law, that considers Guatemala as a case study to examine broad global themes arising from development practices in emerging economies around the world. The 2018 SNX conference provides an opportunity to continue the discussions and further engage and involve the local victims of unfettered globalization. Download Complete Call for Paper
