Call for Papers: ASCOMARE Yearbook on the Law of the Sea – Volume 4

Humanity across the Waves: Exploring the Interplay Between the Law of the Sea and Human Rights Law

The ‘Associazione di Consulenza in Diritto del Mare’ (ASCOMARE) is pleased to launch the call for papers for the Fourth Volume of its Yearbook series on the Law of the Sea. This volume will delve into the intricate relationship between the law of the sea and the protection of human rights. It will analyze how the law of the sea shapes the interpretation and application of human rights legal instruments and obligations, including those that embody peremptory rules of international law. Within this framework, the volume will examine how maritime spaces and resources are utilized by both States and non-State actors to either uphold human rights law or to perpetrate, facilitate, or prevent serious human rights violations of international concern, such as crimes against humanity, genocide, human trafficking, and ecocide. Acknowledging that the law of the sea applies even during wartime, as long as it does not conflict with the law of armed conflict, this book encourages contributions that further explore the interaction between the law of the sea and international humanitarian law in conflict zones.

Deadline for the submission of abstracts: 31 August 2024.

Submissions are accepted in English or Italian.

The most insightful contribution will be awarded a copy of Volume IV of the “United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982: A Commentary” (Virginia Commentary).
