2020 Rosalyn Higgins Prize

The Rosalyn Higgins Prize is an annual prize which awards EUR 1.000 of Brill book vouchers and a one-year LPICT subscription to the author of the best article on the law and practice of the International Court of Justice, either focusing solely on the ICJ or with the ICJ as one of the dispute settlement mechanisms under consideration. The winning article will also be published in LPICT and made freely available online for ninety days to maximize its dissemination.
Competition for the Prize is open to all: scholars as well as practitioners, junior as well as senior professionals. Submissions will be selected via a double-blind peer review process by a Prize Committee, including both co-Editors-in-Chief. Exceptionally, two papers of an equally high standard can be selected. The Committee is also able to choose not to award the Prize if in its opinion none of the submitted papers reaches the required standards. Submissions should be between 6.500 and 8.000 words in length, not yet published or under review elsewhere. Other submission requirements are the same as for regular LPICT submissions. Instructions available here: https://brill.com/fileasset/downloads_products/Author_Instructions/LAPE.pdf
All papers for consideration of the Prize should be sent directly to Freya Baetens (freya.baetens@jus.uio.no) and Régis Bismuth (regis.bismuth@sciencespo.fr), LPICT Co- Editors-in-Chief (with “LPICT Rosalyn Higgins Prize” as email subject). 
                                        
The prizewinner(s) will be announced in September 2020.
