Submitting Blog Posts

Blog Posts may be submitted at any time and are considered on a rolling basis. Submissions should not exceed 1,500 words and can be on any issues of international law, including EU law. Please do not submit unrevised university projects, or pieces under consideration elsewhere to the Blog directly. Please include hyperlinks to all sources in your submissions, without footnotes, unless crediting research support.

Submissions can be made via the link here.

We aim to provide a response on whether the submission is accepted or not within 10 days during the academic year. Please account for an amended timeline for submissions outside the academic year. Updates on timelines are posted regularly below.

Proposing A Symposium

The CILJ Blog aims to give space to early-career researchers and well-established scholars to showcase innovative ideas by hosting a symposium on the CILJ Blog. It is contemplated that a symposium will contain five pieces, published over five days in a week determined by the Managing Editor, based on the publication cycle of the Blog. The specifics for a symposium will be discussed directly with the proposing and contributing authors, with the ambition of ensuring flexibility in style.

Proposals to host a symposium can be made at any time and will be considered on a rolling basis.

Submissions can be sent by e-mail to the Managing Editor of the CILJ Blog at [email protected]. The submission must include a brief description (max 200 words) of what the symposium aims to achieve, the proposed structure, and contributing authors for the symposium (maximum five). Should it be envisaged that the symposium be conducted at a specific time (because of relevancy to a particular week, theme or anniversary in the world of international Law), please include the same within your e-mail.
