New Collaboration between Völkerrechtsblog and Ruhr University Bochum’s Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict (IFHV)
From 2019 onwards, Völkerrechtsblog is regularly publishing Bofaxe: academic snapshots of up-to-the minute news in international law as produced by international law researchers at the Ruhr University Bochum’s Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict (IFHV) and affiliated scholars. The series of the Bofaxe was originally started in 1988 when Professor Knut Ipsen founded the IFHV in Bochum. On one page, Bofaxe assess current legal and political events and contextualize them within the overarching framework of international law, in particular that of international law of peace and armed conflict. In this way, Bofaxe provide legal classifications of situations with an international law nexus and present legal arguments and food for thought on how to address them. We kick off our collaboration with a Bofax on the recent tensions between Pakistan and India. Völkerrechtslog and the IFHV look forward to further fruitful cooperation and many more Bofaxe@Völkerrechtsblog to come. If you want to subscribe to receiving the Bofaxe as a newsletter, please write to Laura.Hofmann@rub.de.
