Opening Access, Closing the Knowledge Gap? International Legal Scholarship Going Online

9:00 o'clock

The internet with its unprecedented communicative potential offers a unique chance to make international legal scholarship more inclusive, participatory – and simply more international. The COVID-19 pandemic further increased the use of digital technologies for global scientific exchange and collaborations, showcasing the wealth of available possibilities – and their promise for advancing international legal scholarship. Is the digitalization of scholarly communication thus a chance to finally overcome the multiple existing barriers? Or have they just moved to a different place?

We are happy to discuss these and further questions at the first Völkerrechtsblog conference, taking place in hybrid format on September 8th and 9th at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg. Online participation is possible. If you are interested in participating in the conference, please contact us at We will send you the links to the panels on the evening of 7 September.
