The War in Ukraine and the Future of the International Legal Order

About the Call for Papers

The American Journal of International Law (AJIL) is soliciting papers for an Agora symposium to be published in the October 2022 issue of the Journal. The title of symposium is “The War in Ukraine and the Future of the International Legal Order.” Submissions can address a wide range of legal issues using various methodologies, including doctrinal, historical, critical, institutional, and/or normative. However, all submissions should focus on the war’s implications for international law and international institutions going forward, not simply on past decisions or actions. Contributions could, for example, focus on:

  • The prohibition on the use of force, including in Article 2.4 of the UN Charter;
  • International economic measures;
  • The challenges and opportunities that the war creates for international criminal law, including the International Criminal Court;
  • Issues relating to migration, human rights, or humanitarian law;
  • Changes in geopolitical competition and power that may result from the war, and the significance of those changes for international law; or
  • Challenges to or the implications for international institutions, including the UN Security Council, NATO, the EU, or other regional organizations.
